It would generally be under the settings of messages and calling options.  You need to specify a phone model.

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.

How do i block a number from texting or phoning me. ive a samsung galaxy phone. thanks


To block a number from calling you and to automatically reject this you need to go into :
1. Settings ...then 2. Call Settings ...then 3. Blacklist - here you will be able to add the number you wish to block.
I do believe that the Galaxy does not have such a feature for blocking text messages so for this I would suggest an app which allows you to do this.
There are many FREE apps out there that do this, for example there is an app called Hide My Text/Calls at http://www.appbrain.com

    How do you block a number


    as far as i know there is no way to block a specific phone number anyone cellphone...

    or you can try this one

    Some phones have an option called a rejection list. It would be under call settings if you have this option. You would simply add the number to the rejection list and the call wouldn’t go through. Actually the caller just goes straight to voice mail.
    If you do not have the rejection list, then assign a silent ringtone to the person. That way the person calls, you won’t hear them calling. You can just ignore the call.
    Maybe try this…text the person saying “Your messages have been blocked by (state your own number). Message 111.” The person will think you blocked their text messages. If they text again, reply with the same message.
    You also change your number if you wish to go that far. You also tell the person that every call and text is now being forward to the police. That should hopefully scare them and then they would stop
