Many iPhone owners expect that incoming call blocking is a built-in feature of the iPhone. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Such a feature is controlled at the provider level. Furthermore, most providers fail to offer call blocking to their customers. Providers that do often charge an exorbitant rate for this feature, such as AT&T in the US which offers a service called "Smart Limits" which includes call blocking but comes at a pricey $5 per month.

There are a couple solutions/workarounds that you can implement:

1) For those of you that are jailbroken, there is an appcalled iBlacklist that will allow you to filter incoming calls and SMS text messages. This is not a free app, but at it's current price of $12.00 (one-time purchase), it can pay for itself fairly quickly vs. pricey provider solutions.

2) Don't block calls, but silence them with a silent ringtone. This will still allow the calls to come through, but will silence the ring so you won't even notice. To set this up, download this iPhone silent ringtone (be sure to right-click or cmd-click and "Save As"), import it into iTunes, and sync it to your iPhone. On your iPhone, add the number you want to block/silence to your contacts and set the silent ringtone as that contact's custom ringtone.

When I send a message to my contacts, why does it show unable to send message=message blocking is active?


Without any context, I'd say someone enabled text block on that line through the carrier.

I can't receive nor text message to one person and vice versa. We both have iPhones and this is a recent problem this past week.


First, make sure one of you didn't somehow accidentally block the other person on your phone (Settings > Messages > Blocked)

Second, try doing a hard reset (hold home button and lock button at the same time until the apple logo appears on the screen).

If that doesn't work, try turning off iMessage (Settings > Messages) and then turning it back on.

If neither of those options work, it's likely an issue with your cellular provider. Talk to them. You might just need to get a new SIM card.

How to block text message ion Apple 5


You can block text messages via Messages app. This works really well for blocking text messages on iPhone, like some unknown spammers, advertising companies and internet marketers bothering you with promotions and offers for products that are not at all related to your interest. These steps will block only those unknown callers that you choose to block.
1. Go to the Messages app.
2. Tap on the target message from the spammer.
3. Choose "Details" on the top right hand corner and tap on it.
4. There will be phone icon and a letter "i" icon across from the number. Tap on the "i" icon.

HOW TO BLOCK CALL ON IPHONE


Need to block a specific phone number from calling or texting your iPhone? It could be telemarketers, spam text messages, or that crank that won't stop calling and messaging. Apple's iOS does not have a built-in feature to block a phone number, but there are other solutions.

1. Your carrier might be able to block individual numbers. AT&T has an optional feature called Smart Limits for Wireless that runs $4.99 per month. One of the many functions is the capability to block up to 30 numbers from calling or texting your iPhone.

Verizon Wireless offers Spam Control for no additional charge. This feature can be found under My Services when logged into your account, and blocks up to 5 numbers from calling or texting.

2. Owners of jailbroken iPhones can install apps from the Cydia Store that will block phone numbers.iBlacklist is fully compatible with all iOS devices, iOS 5 and older firmware. For a one-time cost of $12, iBlacklist adds a plethora of useful features to your iPhone including the ability to block calls and texts from individual numbers.

MobileLog is currently in development and will be offered for sale to jailbroken iPhone owners soon. The app will also provide many enhancements to the stock calling app as well as number blocking.

3. Make sure you've registered your iPhone number with the National Do Not Call Registry. This will not stop texts, but it will require most telemarketers to stop calling your line within 31 days. Complaints can also be filed using the same website, and phone number registrations with the service never expire.

4. Assign a silent ringtone to the numbers you don't want to answer. This stops calls from bothering you, but texts will still sound an alert.

5. Another calling only solution are services such as TrapCall, which has plans starting at $4.95 per month. No iPhone app installation is required, and once you're signed up TrapCall will unmask blocked caller IDs and blacklist unwanted callers. More expensive plans can be purchased that offer more in-depth functions.
