How to Block a Number on an iPhone

Sometimes you might get calls from unsolicited numbers, insurance companies, marketing companies or just people you just don’t want to hear from! Blocking phone calls from numbers on your network is possible but remember that blocking texts from phones on other networks is not. Follow these instructions for a quick and simple way to block calls and texts from numbers with your iPhone.

Block a Contact that is saved to your phone

 

 

  1. Go to Settings on your main screen
  2. Go to Phone
  3. Go to Call Blocking & Identification
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and go to Block Contact
  5. Add the contact you want to block

Block an Unsolicited Caller that is not in your Contact list

 

 

  1. Go to your Call List
  2. Press the i symbol at the right of the call log (be sure to do this carefully, if you miss the i symbol, you will call the number back)
  3. Go down to Block this Caller
  4. Press Block Contact

Save a Number to Contacts to Unblock it Later

 

 

IMPORTANT TIP: Remember, if it is likely that you will want to unblock this contact in the future, it is better to save the number as a contact before blocking, so that you know the identity of the blocked number if you ever need to recover it. You won’t be able to do this for unknown or withheld numbers, as you can’t save a number you don’t know. To do this from the call list follows the below steps:

 

 

 

 

  1. Go to your Call List
  2. Press the i symbol at the right of the call log (be sure to do this carefully, if you miss the i symbol, you will call the number back)
  3. Add the number as a contact in Create New Contact
  4. Go to Settings on your main screen
  5. Go to Phone
  6. Go to Call Blocking & Identification
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the page and go to Block Contact
  8. Add the contact you want to block

Block Texts from Someone who isn’t in your Contacts

 

  1. Go to the text message from the unsolicited number
  2. Click the phone number at the top of the message
  3. Add the number as a contact in Create New Contact
  4. Go to Settings on your main screen
  5. Go to Phone
  6. Go to Call Blocking & Identification
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the page and go to Block Contact
  8. Add the contact you want to block
