  1. Trying to turn off call barring with the PW and comes up with call barring rejected. Please help

    1. Hi Ian Willott,
      Thanks for coming.
      If you enable call barring by yourself, make sure you use the same password to disable it.
      If the call barring is enabled by your service provider then you can ask them to disable it. FYI, the call barring password may be different in some providers.

  3. I have a Samsung Galaxy s7. I never turned call barring on myself, but it is on anyway. I am in Mexico.
    When I go to phone->more->settings->more settings, there is no "call barring" option at all. Only hearing aids, and other call settings, like auto-add int'l code.
    Help! I am in a time crunch

    1. Hi Mina Jordan-Mendez,
      Thanks for coming.
      The Call barring option may not available in some models.
      Alternatively, try to contact your mobile provider and ask them whether they can disable the call barring feature for you.
