    I just had to factory-reset my Nokia Lumia 1510. Naturally, I would like to restore the blocked phone numbers in order to keep out some VERY nasty people. I found the SMS filter without an issues, but there does not appear to be any way to block a number. All of the things I've seen online would seem to imply that you have to wait for unwanted callers to call you FIRST, THEN you can block them. This sounds very stupid. Where is the way to manually block a number?

    I'm assuming you meant the lumia 1520 and I'm also assuming you're on windows 10 mobile

    In settings > search for block and filter or call filter

    In the block and filter app, tap the menu on the left > block list > tap the plus sign and add the number manually

    It works for me so I'm sure it should work for you
