Click on the number in your call log, press menu and select "add to reject list". Job done.

Try some of these Blacklist apps? https://play.google.com/store/search?q=blacklist&c=apps

If it's a really bothersome caller, O2 should block the number for you.

I took the chance that it'd be the same as it is on the Note 2, since it's not an S-Pen specific feature. It is actually pretty useful for never getting calls from the same marketing company twice :p.

Speaking of which: have you ever returned from your holidays just to find you front door wide open, and... oh, oops. That's for later. Same number, right?

Eh? Have you been on the funny mushrooms again, or have you actually been away and someone burgled your house :(? If so, I feel for you, it's never happened to me but I can't imagine it's much fun :(.

Yeah, obviously it only blocks calls from that number, though some kind of PeerBlock like app for known nuisance numbers would be a useful creation...

Blocked by who? The network? Then I doubt ANYTHING will work.

The networks are unable to block the numbers, the user nees to contact the police liason team if it is malicious or ofensive
