    I have a Sharp Aquos Crystal running on Android 4.4.2, in the “Call settings” menu I don’t see a “Blacklist” button, please help

    There is no Blacklist button in my Samsung Galaxy Core 2, even the interface is different. Is that really an Android 4.4.2 KitKat?

    • jhon

      I am in a similar situation with my Sharp Aquos; I emailed the support from Sharp and they told me, albeit it runs on 4.4.2, it doesn’t have the blacklist feature and recommended looking for third party apps

    Sony C3 LTE, Android 4.4.2 KitKat No Blacklist, we have to wait up to next update

  • Tom Ross

    Alcatel using Kitkat 4.4.2 has no blacklist and I have found no way to blacklist numbers in this version.

    This is for 4.4.4 not 4.4.2 in title. The Video even says 4.4.4 and my 4.4.2 does not have a Black list.

    So many help links on Android are only good for a very limited phone set. Another one said Android but it looks to me like only Samsong S3. 5 messages with 4.4.2 below all dont work. We need a thumbs down button for useless junk that is not tested, not even typed in correctly.
