Block incoming calls on iOS

With the arrival of iOS 7 ( Blacklist function successfully migrated to iOS 8), each iPhone owner had the opportunity to add the phone number of the annoying contact to the “black list” without using any tweaks and dances with a tambourine. Incoming calls and messages from a blocked contact will not bother you anymore. This function was expected, if not all, then many.

How can I block an unwanted contact on the iPhone?

1.  Open ” Phone ” – the ” Recent ” or ” Contacts ” tab .

2.  Select the contact you are interested in and open the contact information.
3.  Scroll down the list and press ” Block subscriber ” -> ” Block contact “.

In order to see the list of all blocked contacts, you need to open ” Settings ” -> ” Phone ” -> ” Blocked “.

There you can also delete contacts from the list in the ” Edit ” menu or through the ” Add new ” menu quickly add new contacts to the “blacklist” from the address book.

To view blocked contacts from FaceTime, go to ” Settings ” -> ” FaceTime ” -> ” Blocked “.

What happens when you call the iPhone with your blocked number?

If you call the iPhone in which your number is on the “black list”, you will hear a long beep immediately shifting to intermittent beeps, simulating that the phone is busy with an outgoing call, or a long beep with a transition to voice mail (if this service is used ). In the iPhone on which the subscriber is blocked, nothing will be displayed.

But this does not exclude the fact that the phone can be simply turned off or set up a redirect. To exclude this fact, simply call to the subscriber from another number or hide your own number.

We can assume that you are lucky if the subscriber who blocked you uses iMessage . It is enough to send him a message through Apple’s branded service and if the message ” Delivered ” under the message drops off , but you can not get to him then you know that you are on the “black list”.

How can I hide my number?

This function is provided by the smartphone, but often it must be agreed with the operator and based on this, you are charged.

To hide your number go to ” Settings ” -> ” Phone ” -> ” Show number ” and move the toggle switch to the off position.

How to block calls to iPhone from numbers No caller ID or Unknown
