There's no way to directly block a caller with the features available on the Nokia 6300 wireless phone, but there are alternatives. In the United States, the Nokia 6300 works with AT&T and T-Mobile phone service. If you subscribe to the parental control service offered by either of these providers, you can block calls to your Nokia 6300 with this service. Or, instead of directly blocking a caller, you can program the Nokia 6300 to have a silent ring for certain callers.
