Block and Unblock Skype Contacts with HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to block and unblock a contact in Skype on an HTC One M8.
To begin, unlock the phone. We can do that by pressing down on the power button located on top of the phone. We'll then need to swipe the lock screen up, and that will take us to the home screen.
On the home screen, we need to tap the icon at the bottom of the phone, in the middle. There is a grid made up of white dots. This will open up the applications folder.
In this folder, we need to find and tap the Skype application. There is a Skype icon, which is a white "S" on top of a blue cloud, and underneath it says "Skype".
We now need to select the contact that we want to block.
Once we've entered the conversation, we're going to press the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. There are three white dots in a vertical line.
We want the option labeled "Block contact". A prompt will appear, "Are you sure you want to block (Contact)?
Press "OK" to block the contact.
Alternatively, check the box next to "Remove" or "Remove as spam". Press down on the box again to deselect it. We're going to leave these boxes empty and press "OK". The contact will be removed from the conversation list.
If we tap on "People", we will see that the contact is listed with "blocked" underneath. We cannot see their profile photo either, and there is a red icon with a line through the middle, the traditional symbol for blocking someone. To unblock a contact, press down on the blocked contact. A prompt will say, "Unblock this contact first before trying to call or send them a message."
Press "Unblock". This contact has been unblocked.
If we press the back arrow and go back to to recent, we'll see that the conversation has returned.
This concludes the tutorial on how to block and unblock a contact in Skype on an HTC One M8.
