Select your device type for instructions on how to block phone numbers:


To block a phone number on an iPhone, the number must first be added to your Contacts. Once added to your Contacts, go to Settings > Phone > Blocked > Add New.

Select the Blocked Option

The Add New option will open your Contacts. Click an entry from your Contacts to add to your Blocked List. After doing so, you won't receive phone calls, messages or FaceTime requests from the blocked number.

Tap Add New to block a phone number

To unblock a number from your Blocked List, swipe it to the left until you see the "Unblock" option.


To block a number on an Android device, choose Phone > More > Settings > Call Blocking > Block List.

Choose Phone > More > Settings

Choose Call Blocking

Choose Block List

From the Block List page, you can block a number several ways: 1) enter the phone number and press the + sign, 2) tap Log and choose a number from your call log, or 3) tap Contacts and choose a number from your contacts.

Choose Block List

Once a number is added to your blocked list, you can unblock it by tapping the minus sign next to the blocked number.
