    I get many unwanted calls on your smartphone. And would like to block phone numbers. How does it work?

    If you use at least iOS7 you can do this:

    1. Go to “Settings” on the home screen of your iphone
    2. Push “Phone
    3. Push “Blocked
    4. Push “Add new…
    5. Now select the number you want to block. You can choose a number from your contact list, last calls or text messages.

    Good luck!

    Does anyone know that I’ve blocked his number?

    The blocked person does not know about it.
    But voice mails of the blocked person are still transmitted.

    However, you will not get any information about it. 😉

    In iOS10 you can use different ways to block a phone number.

    From the Phone App:
    1. Go to the “Recents”
    2. Tap the “I” button next to the person`s name or the phone number
    3. Tap “Block Contact”
    4. Confirm it

    From the Messages App:
    1. Go to the conversation
    2. Tap the “I” button on the top-right.
    3. Tap the name of the person
    4. Tap “Block this caller”
    5. Confirm it with tapping “Block Contact”

    In iOS10 apps can now identify callers as scammy and optionally automatically block them. For example, the free Hiya app. This or other apps may help you and your loved ones to differentiate between legitimate callers and those who want to defraud them.
