Block Phone Number On Any iPhone

Simply go to your list of recent callers (open the Phone app, then hit the Recent tab at the bottom). Click the ‘i’ symbol next to the unwanted number, scroll down and tap Block this Caller, then confirm your decision. You won’t be bothered with any calls, texts or FaceTime calls from that number.

(When we tried calling an iPhone that had blocked us, we heard a single ring and were then diverted to the O2 messaging service, where we recorded a message. But the iPhone didn’t ring or show the number in its recent calls. We were able to find the voicemail in the end, but it wasn’t stored in the normal place, but in a special blocked folder – and we weren’t notified about the message being left.)

Alternatively, go to the Settings app and scroll down to the Phone section. Scroll down again and tap Blocked, and you’ll see your list of blocked callers. Hit Add New and pick further numbers to block your contacts list. (You’d need to add the nuisance caller to your contacts list for this method to work, however.)
