Why would I need that?

In reply to: How to block unwanted calls on iOS?

I have my iPhone 5s here and I just go to the list of recent callers (open the Phone app, then hit the Recents tab at the bottom). Click the 'i' symbol next to the unwanted number, scroll down and tap Block this Caller, then confirm my decision.

No more calls from that number!

There are a few ways you can block unwanted calls

In reply to: How to block unwanted calls on iOS?

There are a few different ways you can block unwanted calls on your iPhone and you don't need an app to do so.

First, you could add the person to your contacts, then go to their contact profile and tap Block this Caller.

Second, you could go to Settings -> Phone -> Call Blocking & Identification and block a contact that way.

Third, if the number isn't saved as a contact, go to the Phone app or Messages app and tap the information button (blue i button) next to the person's number. Then, scroll down and tap Block this Caller.

Good luck!
