I remember back in the days when you have to dial a certain USSD code to block and unblock unwanted numbers from getting in touch with yours. This days, technology innovations have made things a bit easier. You can now carry out that function by simply making use of a call or SMS blocker app. In this post, I will be showing you how you can easily block and unblock numbers on Infinix Hot 4 Lite, a case study of an Infinix smartphone.
Blocking a number from calling your line might be as a result of two purpose; either the number is spammy, or you do not actually want to receive calls from the owner of that mobile number for some period of time. Most smartphone users have been carrying out this function by the use of third party apps they download from either Google Play Store or Apple Store. But there is good news for all Infinix smartphone users, you can easily block unwanted calls and SMS from any number you choose without installing any third-party app. Yes! you can easily do this with your phone.
Creating this post on how to block and unblock numbers on Infinix Hot 4 Lite was actually inspired by a difficulty i went through. Let me cut the story short, I actually blocked a particular number mistakenly from my call log, then it made me conduct researches on how to unblock the same number using my phone (Infinix Hot 4 Lite) without downloading any call blocker app. When I eventually stumbled upon an app known as “XManager” on my phone, I have to figure out some of its functions, and bingo!…I got what I am looking for.
I unblocked the number, it was a success. I latter use the XManager to block my second line, tested if was actually blocked…and yes it was. I unblocked it once more, and the number started working again. It was then I realised that many Infinix Hot 4 Lite users were actually easting their time, data, and app space to install a third-party “call and SMS blocker” app. You can actually block and unblock numbers on Infinix Hot 4 Lite with ease.
So let us go with the steps involved. I also added some images which can make the steps a little bit clearer.
