Is there a way to block calls on the 4S?

I've been getting a lot of unwanted calls....even from international numbers. I've had this number for 4 years at least. Is there a way to block calls from certain numbers on my phone? Thanks!

Log in to your Sprint account on the website and under preferences you can list specific numbers to block.

Log in.

Point over "My Sprint" and click on "My prefernces"

Scroll down and under "Limits and permissions" click on "Block voice"

Click on the device you want to block the calls coming in on.

Click on the dot that says, "Block only the following phone numbers for inbound and outbound calls."

Enter the number in the blank field and click on "Add number."

Should do it!

I figured it out but it wont block international calls.

Block or restrict voice calls:

Sign in to My Sprint with valid username and password at www.sprint.com.

Click the My Preferences tab.

Under Limits and Permissions, click Block voice.

Select the phone you wish to block

Choose from the following options to block, restrict or allow calls:
Do not block any voice calls (all of your previously blocked voice calls will be archived for easy access later)

Block all out-bound voice calls

Block only the following phone numbers for inbound and outbound calls

Enter the phone number you wish to block in the field and click Add number. The number will be added to the block list. To remove, select the number and click Remove. If you do not have permissions to block voice calls, you will see a message indicating that your selection cannot be blocked.

Click Save to block voice access. If updates were saved successfully you will see the following confirmation message: "Thank you! We've saved your changes.

You will see a Blocked icon on the phone that has blocked voice services. Turn your phone off and back on for the new settings to take effect. These changes will take effect within 15 minutes
