How To Enable or Disable Call Barring on Android and iPhone

Call barring, when active, restricts incoming, outgoing, or international calls on your phone. Deactivating it allows you to receive and make calls again.

Call barring functions with the direct purpose of preventing calls. By adjusting call barring settings, you have the ability to restrict incoming calls to your device, including those from unknown or international numbers.
