That's why a lot of people want to do it, but sadly they don't know the correct method. Sometimes it is due to how infrequently they tend to freeze, and in other cases to how complex it can be.

What is the use of blocking a contact on a phone?

Sometimes people tend to block users without really knowing all that this entails, and hence the need to really know what it's for and how it affects blocking a contact.



Initially, when you block a user, will not be able to make phone calls or send you SMS messages. In other words, the blocked person will not be able to use their line to communicate with you.

Secondly, that user blocking can also be seen in some applications, although this is not very common.

One of the applications where if you can see a user's block is in WhatsApp and you can also block someone in Hangouts. But in the same way, there can be no interaction between the blocked number and the user who blocked it via the social network.

Which devices allow you to block a contact?

Blocking users has been a necessity that has existed for several years on mobile phones. It is a progress that has appeared with those digital and keypad cell phones.

After that we can have this option also on mobile phones Blackberry, Android, iOS and all smart devices to which a telephone line can be incorporated.

And although most cell phones today have this tool, not all of them run the same, which can be difficult for you. For example, to a user who drove Android and now uses a mobile phone with an iOS system.



How to block a contact or phone number on Huawei?

The first thing we need to do when we want to block a user on Huawei is search for it in the contact list. This will be made easier with the small bar-shaped alphabet on the right side of the interface.

After finding it, we proceed to tap the name, when the new screen opens we look for the option (other) which is represented by three vertical ellipses.

After opening the menu, we will select the option that says add to blacklist, which will tell the cell phone that it shouldn't receive calls or SMS from that number.

Now, if the case is with an SMS you received and didn't add the number, the process is even easier.

First it has to be open the messaging application, then we hold down the conversation we want to block, after 1 second the interface will show us new options. Within these new options we must look for the symbol of padlock, which is identified by a circle that has a diagonal line in the center, we accept the pop-up window and that's it.


Thanks to these options we can repeatedly avoid certain services or people with whom we are not interested in establishing a conversation. And it's not a permanent, quiet action, since all cell phones with the lock option also have an unlock, the process of which is pretty much the same.


It is also important to know that you can only block calls from unknown numbers on Huawei mobile phones and you must not talk to people you may not know.

Finally we hope that this article has been to your liking, however we would like to know, is there another way to block a contact? Do you find this tool useful? Leave your opinion in the comments.
