Same way for SMS, open up message list and long press on an SMS, you’ll get similar options. You’re good to go.

To unblock, follow these steps: goto Settings->call + SMS filter->”Blocked number”, blocked numbers will be listed, click on “Select” and then ‘check’ the number you wish to unblock, press ‘Unblock’. The number is now unblocked.

Hope this feature works well, no more spam calls.
