How to BLOCK CALLS on your iPhone w iOS 7

Screen shot 2013-10-16 at 6.35.19 PMOn this blog we will be exploring one feature of iOS 7 at a time, and so every few days I’ll toss another here on the blog to look at more closely.

Just ONE at a time. Slow and steady.

That’s how we “everyday folks” can cope with all this stuff. 🙂

Yes! You can now block any pesky calls that come your way.

I’m delighted with this feature since a local pharmacy robo-calls me regularly, and I have been unable to get them to stop. This feature has solved the problem for me. I  blocked them. No more annoying calls.  🙂

So if you have iOS 7 on your phone, and a telemarketer or a “whoever” is troubling you, the power is now in YOUR hands.  You can block their calls.

Here is how to block a call:

Tap on your phone icon and select “recents.”

Look for the offending phone number.

Tap on the “i” on the far right side of the number. This will take you to an information screen.


Scroll down the information screen, and you will see the option to “block this caller“. Yay! No more pesky calls. 🙂

  1. This is in my opinion one of the greatest new features of the iOS7, along with the much faster camera app. Everybody I know is just complaining since the 7 update but I think it’s a step forward.

I'd love to hear what you think!
