Block, restrict or allow voice calls using My Sprint

Last Updated: Nov 16, 2013

You can control which phones on your account can make or receive calls, and establish a list of phone numbers that are blocked both for inbound and outbound calls.

To change voice settings, you must have a valid My Sprint account and be set up with an account owner profile. Account owners can block all phones associated with their account. If you are not an account owner and do not have permission to change settings on your account, you will see a message showing your current data control settings. Read more about the different levels of profile access on sprint.com.

Important notes:

 

 

  • If you have more than 100 devices on your account, only the first 100 show in My Sprint. To change the rest, contact us by dialing *2 on your Sprint phone.
  • If 911 is called from your Sprint phone, ALL inbound calls will automatically be allowed for 24 hours following placement of the 911 call so public safety can attempt to call back, if the call is disconnected. Call blocking will automatically be reinstated after (but cannot be reinstated during) the 24 hour period. You will not be notified of the suspension or reinstatement.
