Updated 01-13-2016 by Kyle Wiggers: Added methods for blocking calls using iBlacklist and Do Not Disturb Mode.
Here’s our how-to guide about how to block calls with an Apple iPhone regardless of your OS version.
It’s been a long time coming, but Apple has finally built an OS with built-in blocking utilities (and we are better for it).
Step 2: Navigate to Blocked menu — Tap the main Settings icon when viewing the home screen, select the Phone option from the resulting menu and tap the Blocked option beneath the Calls section. Step 3: Block the number — Tap the blue Add New button and select the desired number you wish to block from the resulting contact list.
Alternative blocking method — Tap the Phone icon while viewing the home screen, select either all calls or missed calls and tap the information icon to the right of the number you wish to block.
One of iOS 8's many little conveniences is the ability to (finally!) block numbers from contacting a device.
From Settings, contacts can also be blocked selecting either Messages or Facetime, and then following the above instructions. In instances where you want to a block a number that isn't stored as a contact in your phone, go to the Phone app > Recents. Block from Messages by selecting the message thread with the contact and tapping Contact in the upper right corner.
Decide an acquaintance served their time on the blocked list and want to digitally revive them? In Settings go to Phone > Blocked, where a list of blocked contacts and numbers will appear.
From Settings, contacts can be removed from a blocked list by selecting either Messages or Facetime, and then following the above instructions. Find the contacts' name or the number you'd like to unblock in the Recents tab of the Phone app. Unblock the contact via Messages by selecting the message thread with the contact, and tapping Contact in the upper right corner. If the contact tries to send you a text or iMessage, from their end, it will look like the message was sent, though you — thanks to your craftiness — will not actually have to see the message.
Take note, blocking contacts goes one way, meaning you can still call, text, or FaceTime the numbers you've listed in Blocked.

Should you continue to get unwanted phone calls from spammers or marketing companies, consider adding your number to the National Do Not Call Registry. How many numbers or contacts can be added to the block list before it can't accept anymore? The reason why I ask, even though I've added many numbers that are actual telemarketers to my list, it's great I no longer get these calls (even though I'm on the do not call registry list).
So yeah, that's why I'm asking with how many can be added to the blocked list before it won't accept any more. From pesky telemarketers to an ex who doesn’t know when to let go, we all have people we wish we could block from ever calling us again. For many of us, those unwanted calls come in the form of persistent ex-lovers trying to rekindle what has been lost or telemarketers offering an all-expenses-paid luxury cruise to a tropical island off the southern tip of Costa Rica.
The feature, coupled with all versions of iOS since the release of iOS 7, allows users to quickly block calls, messages, and Facetime requests sans any unnecessary external software or third-party apps. There will be no indication a call, text, or FaceTime request has been received on your end, but send receipts and other indications will still appear on the sender’s device as they would normally — meaning the sender will not be alerted of your decision to block them. To do so using the latter option, tap the main Settings icon from your smartphone’s home screen, select the General option near the top of the resulting menu, and then tap Software Update. Alternatively, select either the Messages or FaceTime option from the main Settings menu to access the same Blocked menu offered through the Phone settings. To unblock a user, simply tap the blue Edit option in the top-right corner of the Blocked menu, followed by the red subtraction sign directly beside the user you wish to unblock. Now, scroll to the bottom of the resulting info panel, and tap the blue Block this Caller option, followed by Block Contact to confirm the request. Whether it's a salesperson, frenemy, or someone you just need a digital break from for a bit, Apple's new operating system now allows users to limit the communication received from the outside world. The All Contacts window will appear where you can scroll through names to then tap the name of the contact you'd like to block.
Look for the number (or name) you'd like to block and tap the blue "i" with a circle around it to the right of the number. Select the information icon, and proceed with the same instructions as in the Recents tab in Phone. So if the blocking is also to limit yourself from communication with a certain person, better go ahead and delete their number completely from your phone.

Thankfully, with the iOS 7 update, iPhone users now have the ability to block specific numbers within the operating system. Your phone won’t even blink (or register a call) if a blocked contact tries to get a hold of you.
Thankfully, Apple’s most-recent mobile operating system and the iBlacklist app have finally supplied a workaround method for blocking pesky callers. Call blocking is a one way street when using iOS 7 – 9, so you can still contact blocked numbers via phone call, text, and FaceTime with no hindrance, if you should decide that you want to.
If you have people or unknown, annoying numbers that you'd prefer not to see messages or receive phone and Facetime calls from, follow the instructions below. You'll be taken back to the Blocked window with the name added to the list of blocked contacts.
Then, tap the red delete button to the left of the name, which will cause a red unblock button appear. But, not all are classed as telemarketers eg children's hospitals always call for donations (even though we give what we can), the local fire & rescue same thing, the local charities looking for more donations, again even though we give where we can, the once a week call is getting beyond the joke really. If you don’t have it saved in your address book, go to your call logs to pull up the offending number and tap the “i” next to it. Unwanted callers will immediately be redirected to voicemail, but you won’t even get a message.
Select it, and the contact is restored to unblocked bucket, with all rights, privileges and honors appertaining thereto.
Any message left in voicemail will be put in a separate folder called "Blocked Messages," to which you can listen.
To unblock them, simply repeat steps 1 and 2, then hit Unblock Contact or Unblock This Caller.
The amount of calls from charities etc we get, really, I can't store any more numbers on our home cordless under "telemarketers", it can only store so many.
At least I know who not to answer when it flashes up "telemarketers" on my home phone & just not answer.
