The Samsung Replenish doesn't feature a native app or option for blocking phone calls from private, blocked or restricted numbers. As an Android smartphone, however, it does have access to a number of third-party solutions designed to block these irritants, among other troublesome callers. In order to block these calls, you'll need to download one of these third-party apps. In most cases, these apps are free with paid premium versions available.

Call Control

Step 1

Download and install Call Control. Launch the app and tap "Settings."

Step 2

Select "Enable Call Control" and make sure its check box is checked.

Select "Block Private and Unknown Calls" and make sure its check box is checked.

Call Blocker

Step 1

Download and install Call Blocker. Launch the app and tap "Profiles."

Step 2

Tap the default or currently selected profile and select "Edit."

Mr. Number

Step 1

Download and install Mr. Number. Launch the app and tap the "Blocklist" icon.

Step 2

Select either "Pick up and hang up" or "Send to voicemail." The option you choose will determine how Mr. Number deals with the call.

Warnings

  • Not all of these apps are guaranteed to work on your Replenish. Differences in models and carriers make it difficult for a single app to work for all potential users. Test each app to ensure it actually works on your phone.
