I’ve been using Windows Phone 10 for more than two weeks now. It has been noticed that block number option is not popping up when I tried to block a number from call history. I’ve enabled Call+SMS filter option from Settings menu on Windows 10 Phone. Block number or Call Filter is not working on Windows 10 Phones, Is this a known issue with Windows 10? I don’t know whether it’s only happening with Lumia 630 or not. Block number option is located under “Settings” menu “Extras” in the Windows 10 Phone. Tap on call+SMS filter option as shown in the below picture.
Also you can refer my post “Known Issues and Workarounds Identified with Windows 10 Upgrade on Phones” to know more about other Windows 10 based phone known issues.
Once you go into Call+SMS filter option then slide the button to “ON” or enable block number or SMS feature on your Windows 10 phone.
When you tap on blocked numbers, you can see a message on your Windows 10 Phone “No blocked numbers. You can add numbers directly from call history”
However, when I tried to add a number from my Windows 10 Phone call history page to blocked number, this can be done by pressing “bit” long on a particular number. Only options, I get on the Windows 10 phone are Details, Delete and Add to speed dial !! Block number option is not popping out at all.
Let’s see there is some option to work around Block Number issue in Windows 10 Phone. SMS filter is working fine on Windows 10 Phone. Is Microsoft trying to retire block number option from Windows 10 Phones? Let’s wait and see.
