How To Block Calls and SMS From Specific Numbers On Tecno Android Phones

Sometime back, i wrote on how to Block calls and text messages from specific numbers on Infinix Android Phones. Now, I’d like to do same for Tecno smartphones.

Of course, there are loads of third party apps that can allow you block numbers with ease. However, if you are like me, you’d rather prefer keeping the number of apps on your phone to a minimal.

Thankfully, infinix and Tecno phones run almost the same custom user interface. Especially with their devices running Android Marshmallow. While Infinix terms ir’s custom UI as XUI, tecno terms theirs as HiOS. But really, both interface are almost same. Just some little tweaks here and there.

Having mentioned that, adding numbers to blacklist on Tecno latest Android phones is quite similar to how its done on infinix phones.
