S21 FE- How do you completely avoid an unknown number from coming through? My daughter keeps getting spam numbers for junk cars and one was a sexting text. IPhone allows parental controls to block the message until the parent enters their code. She gets a million random calls and texts a day.

3. Go to number and tap on it.

Open Phone and click on three dots and go to Settings > Block Numbers > enable Block Unknown/Private Numbers and enable Block Spam/Scam calls.

If any of the suggestions above posted by Other Community members, you might want to reach out to your Cellular carrier to see if they over any call screening tools or applications to provide you better call screening, for example I am using Verizon wireless as my carrier and they offer an application to screen calls plus I am able to login to Verizons Website and manually add Spam calls
