Hi!

 

You might take a look at this function:

1) Go to Phone;

2) Press the menu key to open the contextual menu, and select Call settings;

3) In the Call settings, choose Call rejection;

4) Activate Auto reject mode, then click on Auto reject list;

5) In the Auto reject list, create a new rejection entry for the phone number you would like to be automatically rejected.

 

This way, when you receive a phone call from a rejected phone number, the caller gets automatically redirected to your voicemail box.

 

 

 

Please note, though, that I have a Galaxy SIII with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean; I don't know if this function is available in Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich or 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

Trend micro antivirus has call blocking features, plus its a very simple anti-virus

When I go to call settings, there is NOT a choice to reject a certain number.  I have reject messages for when you are driving or something like that.  There is no place to add numbers to a blocked list.  What do I do.

Hello trudietrey

You can always download a Block Call app from the Play store if you like. Here is the list of them.
