Unable to recieve calls and messages from unknown numbers.

I'm having an issue with my phone where unless I have already texted, called, etc a number I'm unable to receive texts and stuff from said number. This is a major problem as it means I can't even get stuff like WhatsApp as it required your phone number which I can't verify as I wouldn't receive a text from them. If anyone knows why this is happening please tell me as soon as possible with a solution if possible. Thanks.

Re: Unable to recieve calls and messages from unknown numbers.

Hello

Samsung phones use a system call Hiya which can be used to block calls from unknown numbers so do the following -

1) Find the App Hiya and open it.

2) Goto settings at the bottom.

3) Goto Call settings.

4) Change the Calls from Private Numbers too Show Warnings.

In there you also can check for the other settings if they need changing to suit you.

Regards Mike

Hello, I'm unable to find this system you are talking about anywhere on my phone, is there a specific place to find it? It's not in any of my apps?

Re: Unable to recieve calls and messages from unknown numbers.

Hello

So the other place it will be is in call settings - Block Numbers - then there is an option to Block unknown / hidden numbers.
