Blocking connections

If you have received a call from someone and do not want to be pestered by that number (telemarketing, for example), here’s how to block it:

Step 1: Open the Phone app and touch the Recent tab.

Step 2: Find the unwanted number and touch the symbol little i next to it.

Step 3: At the bottom of the screen, choose the Block this Caller option. Confirm the lock.

From this moment on, whenever the same number is connected to you, the connection will be diverted as if the unit was out of range. With this process, text messages sent from this number are also blocked.

 

Blocking Messages

To block messages, the process is similar:

Step 1: Open the unwanted messages you received.

Step 2: Touch the Contact button at the top of the screen.

Step 3: Touch the symbol little i.

Step 4:  At the bottom of the screen, choose the Block this Caller option. Confirm the lock.

From now on, whenever the same number sends you a message, it will not be received on your device and everyone who has synchronized with the same iCloud account (your iPad, for example).

 

Blocking known numbers

If you want to block a number even before you call or send a message, it is also possible.

Step 1: Open the Settings and go to Phone> Lock.

Step 2: Touch the Edit button at the top of the screen.

Step 3: At the bottom of the screen, tap Add New and choose a number of your contacts.

 

How to Unlock a Locked Number

If you change your mind and want to unlock a specific number, follow the steps:

Step 1: Open the Settings and go to Phone> Lock.

Step 2: Touch the Edit button at the top of the screen.

Step 3:  Find the number you want to unlock the list and touch the red circle next to it.Confirm the unlock.

Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to block calls with hidden numbers or with a specific prefix. Even so, it is already of great value to iOS users.
