Do you frequently receive calls or messages on your iPhone from people you don’t know? You might find yourself looking at the phone trying to decide what to do with the call or message.
All you see are numbers now knowing if you should respond or pick up the call. But there is a simple step-by-step process to help you block these numbers on your iPhone.
There are 2 ways you can do this – you can block numbers through your call log in your Phone App or block it right inside your Messages app.
Here is how you can do it in your call log in your Phone app.
Block a Caller
Step 1. Open your Phone App
Step 2. Once you locate the number you want to block, click the “i” icon next to it
Step 3. Click the “Block this Caller” option at the bottom
Now wasn’t that a breeze?
Now, you might receive a message from an unknown number offering your products and services you’re not interested in. You can block those numbers as well. Try this out!
Step 1. Open your Messages App
Step 2. Find and open the message sent by the number you want to block
Step 3. Click the top part to reveal more options then tap on the Info icon.
Step 4. Once there, you need to tap on the Info icon again.
Step 5. You can tap on the “Block this Caller” option at the bottom
Remember that after you have blocked a number, you will not receive further messages or calls from them. But this is limited to Apple’s communication applications. This usually covers texts, calls, and even Facetime. What does it mean?
Well, if they are really persistent, they could try reaching out to you through third-party applications. If you are worried that the person might get offended if you block them, don’t worry! There is a low chance that they will know about it.
You can also use the “Do Not Disturb” function of your iPhone. This will limit the calls you get from people on your contacts list.
That is it! So the next time you want to stop receiving calls or messages from numbers you do not recognize, simply follow the steps above.
