How to block a number (crank calls)

I'm getting a repeated call from some 800 number to my child's mobile which I'd like to block for good. They keep calling 4-8 times a day, and hanging up as soon as answered.

I went to the FAQ page, and the instruction on the page doesn't work at all; neither the one time blocking nor the permanent blocking.

Has anyone have any idea how to deal with this? Help!

You can block via the phone app settings

Hi Dennis - I usually use iPhone, but my child's is our old LG.
Where exactly do I go? When I have the Phone app open, there is no settings available there.

Ok - do you mean the settings app?
I wen to the "call settings" under there but there is no blocking a specific number. I found how to block our child's number to an outgoing call.

Thanks for your input, btw.

Depends on the phone model you have. You may need to download a call blocking app of it is an older phone
