Blocking unwanted calls on your Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is easy and can be done in a few ways. Here is a step-by-step guide on the different methods to block calls on your Redmi Note 4.

Using the Block List

The easiest way to block calls is by using the Block List in the Phone app.

You can also block a number directly from the call log:

  2. Go to the “Recent” tab
  3. Long press on the number you want to block
  4. Select “Add to block list”

To unblock a number, go back to the Blocked numbers list, long press on the number, and select “Unblock”.

Using Keywords to Block Spam

You can use keywords to automatically block spam calls and texts. This is useful for blocking telemarketers and robocalls.

  2. Go to Block list > Settings
  3. Enable “Block unknown numbers”
  4. Enable “Block hidden numbers”

This will block any call or text from a number not in your contacts.

Using Third-Party Apps

There are many third party apps on the Play Store that can block calls and texts. Some popular options:

  • Truecaller – Identifies spam callers and blocks them
  • Mr. Number – Reverse phone lookup and call blocking
  • Should I Answer? – Blocks spam calls automatically
