Hi, you can press and hold on the number for 2 to 3 seconds and you get a menu up. at the bottom it says "ADD TO BLACK LIST" or you can search android market for call blocker. their are a lot to choose from.

Hope this helps

Thanks but the number is already black listed but still comes through. At the android market, some people have call blocker installed but black listed numbers still come throgh.

I found something I haven't tried yet. This is what I did:

1)settings
2)call settings
3)call rejection
4)auto reject mode
5)black list
6)Add number

If you have already added the number to black list, clicking black list in 5) above, you tick the number.
Hopefully the number will not ring you again.

I hope this helps and as I said, I have to wait and see if that same number will call again.

Hi ijared,

The part of your post with those 6 steps is something that has been added in a recent version of Android. When the Samsung Galaxy S2 first came out they weren't needed, though I've recently found out that those extra steps need to be done.

It seems a bit stupid of android to have brought that in and just assumed customers would realise they'd have to do something to block numbers they were blocking already.
