Most of the time during day or night, we do not want to attend to unwanted calls. These days, we get a huge number of spam messages from vendors (sale, offers etc). Even though you add your number of national DND registry, the spam won’t stop. Setting up call and message blocking is one ideal way to make sure that only those who you prefer to contact you (call/SMS) at any given point of time can reach out to you. In this post, we show you how to effectively block calls and messages.  We have compiled a few guides for Android Nougat. Head to this page to see the full list of guides. Also, do not miss our “Recommended Smartphones”  list that contains best smartphones for every budget.
