    So I can add unwanted calls to a "reject" list. But when that # calls again it still shows the call received, albeit in a rejected notification bar.

    How can I completely stop these blocked #'s from even showing up ever?

    Does the Samsung contact / people app have an option for All Calls To Voicemail? For years now I have had a contact named Scammers, and it is marked as All Calls Straight To Voicemail in my Contact app. I have dozens of numbers listed there, everytime a new scam / spam number calls I add it to that contact. I never see a notification that any of those numbers is calling.

    First, did around the settings with a Contact open in the Contact app. Look for an option for Calls To Voicemail or something like that. I have a Motorola phone, so am not familiar with the Sammy Contact app. But...if there is an option to do that, make a New Contact and set it for All Calls To Voicemail and add a phone number that you never want to see a notification for. Add new numbers to that Contact over time .

    Here how it works on my phone, yours may be different, or it may not have this option? Open a Contact, select Edit (pencil symbol), select three dot Menu, select All Calls To Voicemail and Save.

    I don't think that's an option for the S7 unfortunately.

    I used to use Blacklist Plus by Vlad Lee because I wanted something that blocked both calls and/or texts and how it didn't allow calls to go to voice mail when I chose the "hang up" option.
    The reason I started using it has since been solved and I just never installed it on this phone.
