  • Note: Blocking a number will prevent them from calling, sending text messages, or FaceTiming you.
  • Note: If you have previously blocked this number, tapping “Unblock this Caller” will remove them from your blocked list.

Step 5: Confirm Blocking

A pop-up window will appear asking for confirmation to block the selected number. To proceed with blocking, tap on “Block Contact”.


You have successfully blocked a number on your iPhone. You will no longer receive calls, messages, or FaceTime requests from this number.

Additional Tips

If you wish to unblock a number in the future, follow these steps:

  1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
