A lot depends on your model of phone.
My phone I can assign a specific ring tone to each phone #. So annoying numbers I have assigned them as a Mute ring tone.

When you edit a phone number, it should give you options as to blocking, assigning a ring tone, saving etc.

How do i find out a blocked number thats been cranking me on my I phone 6


You should be able to block unknown numbers. Right now I don remember how to do it since I haven work with an iPhone for a long, long time. Also check to see if there is any app that can block spam and unknown numbers.
But give this a try.

  • From iPhone App: Goto Recents Tab-> tap "i" next to number you want to block-> scroll to bottom & choose "block this caller".

Too stop unknown numbers calling free


Unknown callers should have a number that appears with no name - these can be blocked post call or in the Settings/Phone/Blocked Callers section. Unknown calls with no number can only be blocked from the carrier side - you would have to contact your provider.

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.

Someone calls from a blocked number and never leaves a message. How do I figure out who it is?


I've seen this on my iPhone too, and often times, the caller is one of my friends / relatives from another country. If your expecting a call from a person in another country, the blocked number could be that person.
