This is definitely a stupid question, and one I could probably answer with a few hours of sorting through Google links to random advice forum posts, but I'm hoping you all will save me the headache :-) I've had a persistent telemarketer calling my cell phone. (New phone, but I've had the number for years.) Google tells me it's someone giving away travel "prizes", most likely contingent on buying a timeshare. I have no idea how my number ended up on their list, since I never use my phone and actually lost it for the last six months or so before buying this new one, but the comments I saw indicated they won't take you off their list so there's no point in asking.
is there a way to block specific incoming calls on a cell phone? Does it vary by phone type? I now have a samsung something or other, if that makes a difference. I don't even know where to start looking - I dug through all the likely phone menus but didn't see anything. This phone is capable if interrnet and taking videos and making cannolis and who knows what else, so there are a lot of menus :-) I just use it for phone calls and the occasional text . . .
