Have you received annoying calls from marketers on your iPhone that refuse to stop calling you after you tell them a gazillion times do not call me ever again? They always say it is public information and they have every right to call you. So you have every right to block the number from calling you on your iPhone and stop calls from an iPhone contact.
Here is how to block the number for good for any iPhone generation that you have.
In iOS8, open the Phone app at the bottom of your home screen. At the bottom of the window in your Phone app, you should see “Recents”. Click on that. You will see a list of your recent annoying callers.
Click the little icon that has an i inside a circle, next to the number you wish to block. Click on that. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the option to “Block this Caller”. Click it and confirm it. How easy is that?
To block contacts in iOS7 and in iOS8, you can go to “Settings” and scroll down to “Phone”. Scroll down again and you will see an entry for “Blocked”. This shows you a list of blocked contacts. Click “Add New”, and you will be taken over to your “Contacts” section. Select the contact that you want to block and then confirm it.
You will not receive phone calls, messages, or FaceTime from people on the block list.
Now you can rest a little easier knowing the car warranty knuckle heads can’t call you during dinner.
