Posted by Arch on

If you wish to stop getting calls from a certain number or person, the most practical solution might be to block them. As well as allowing you to avoid stalkers and admirers, blocking calls can also help you deal with annoying telemarketers and spammers.

Luckily, it is quite easy to block all the unwanted calls you are getting on your Oppo A83. To do this, just follow the methods listed below.

Blocking Calls from Settings

The Settings app on your Oppo A83 allows you to create a Blacklist of all the unwanted calls. Here is what you need to do:

1. Launch the Settings App

When you are inside the Settings menu, tap on Call to get more options.

2. Select Block

When you enter the Block menu, select Blacklist to add the numbers or contacts you wish to block.

3. Tap on Add

Tapping on Add takes you to the menu where you can select the callers you wish to block. This menu allows you to choose callers from Contacts, Call Log, or Groups.

How to Block All Unknown Numbers

If you wish to stop receiving calls from all unknown numbers, there is an option that can make this possible. You should take the following steps:

1. Launch the Settings App

Tap on Call in the Settings menu to access all the options for your incoming calls.

2. Select Block Unknown Numbers

Once you are inside the Call menu, toggle on the switch next to the Block Unknown Numbers option.

Additional Call Blocking Settings

In addition to blocking callers from your Contacts or Call Log, you can further customize the calls you don’t wish to receive. This is what you need to do:

1. Launch the Settings App

Select Call in the Settings app and then tap on the Operator’s Call Related Settings.

2. Select Call Restriction

Tap on Call Restrictions inside the Operator’s Call Related Settings to get more blocking options.

3. Choose the Desired Restrictions

There are a few different options you can choose from the Call Restriction menu. You can reject all calls or limit the calling options while roaming. To enable or disable any of these settings, just toggle on/off the switch next to the option.

You should note that toggling on the Reject All Incoming Calls will prevent you from receiving any calls. Instead, all callers trying to get in touch with you will get a busy signal. To deactivate call blocking, tap on the Cancel All Restrictions option at the bottom of the menu.

Use an External App to Block Calls

There are more than a few free or paid apps that allow you to block calls on your Oppo A83. One of the most popular is Block Call and Block SMS. If you wish to use this app, you need to download it from the Play Store first.

After you’ve installed and launched the app, you will be asked to set a password.

When you have the password in place, you can use the Settings menu inside the application to customize the blocking options.

The Last Call

Avoiding unwanted calls doesn’t have to be frustrating if you use some of the methods mentioned above. However, if an unwanted caller is still managing to get through to you despite the block, you should report them. In this situation, it is best to contact your carrier and tell them about the harassment.
