So, there you have it. Blocking contacts on infinix phones is that easy. Got questions? Please free to share using the comment session.

Judging by the comments, a lot of persons still seem to have problems with being able to block numbers on their infinix phones. For this reason, I have decided to update this post with a working method.

The reason for the difference is, this post was originally written with older infinix phones in mind. Likes of the HOT 3 and earlier. However, since XOS (the brand’s customized UI) was launched, things have changed. For this reason, this post will be updated to help those using Infinix HOT 4 and newer devices.

      Pending the time I bring information for XUI users, use truecaller app in making a quick block.

    • Daniel, you know that particular icon you tap in-other to display all your apps? That’s the app drawer. Hope it’s clear now?

      • Dear Samuel,
        The steps above are not working for Infinix 03. Does not model have another way to blocking unwanted calls and sms?

    • @Daniel, Search on XManager on your home screen, Manager is just an app on your phone.. App drawer is just a directory to search for app, app drawer is where you type an app name for easy access, so type xmanager, lunch the xmanager and block
