Unwanted calls can be quite irritating, and they come in a variety of forms. We’ll teach you steps to follow to prevent them, regardless of how they arrive.

Many consumers have had to deal with stalker calls or network-generated commercials from their various network providers.

If you’re experiencing any of these problems, switching to flight mode or enabling MTN, Glo, Airtel call blocking isn’t a good idea.

So, based on the situation you’re having, we’ll show you different techniques on how to block a number on MTN, Glo, Airtel as well as the places where they’re applicable.

How to block a number from calling you on MTN, Glo and Airtel line

If you want to block a certain number on you MTN, Glo, or Airtel line, you can do so by following the instructions below:

Step 1. Visit your contact and click on settings

Note that the view differs depending on the phone. The screenshot was taken with an Infinix HOT 6 running Android 8.1.0.

Step 2. Under setting, click on “blocked numbers”

Step 3. Click on ‘Add A Number’

Step 4. Enter the phone number and select block.

At this point, you can decide to add from call record, SMS, contact or manual input.

We recommend that you input the whole country code for the phone number you want to ban.

If you’re adding a Nigerian phone number, for example, you should use +2348013355669 instead of the standard 08013355669.

It’s also worth noting that if you have a 2-SIM device, the number will be blocked on both SIMs.

That example, if your phone has both MTN and Glo lines, neither of them will be able to receive calls or texts from the blocked number.

Furthermore, because this setting is done through your phone, it is only applicable for as long as you have an MTN, Glo or Airtel line on that phone.

If you transfer your MTN, Glo or Airtel SIM card to a new phone, the same steps for blocking numbers must be followed.
