Is there a way to block one number for free?I do not want to pay for a monthly service but I am getting harrasing calls from 1 specific number.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I agree! With what I already pay each month for the services I have I shouldn't need to pay extra to be able to block a harassing number!

The iOS 7 blocking is nice, but it's useless in cases where the phone scammer uses different spoofed caller ID phone numbers every time.
Personally, I do believe that AT&T is somehow responsible for this. These calls started as soon as I quit my AT&T service at the exact same time they started blasting me with snail-mail and email marketing campaigns urging me to come back to AT&T. Clearly they leveraged some marketing partner that failed to properly secure my private data.

Download the app "Mr. Number". It is a free app that blocks calls and texts. You must have the app running for it to work though. When a blocked number calls, it rings for maybe one second and then a little box pops up saying this call was blocked by Mr. Number.
Hope this helps!

one of the problems is, you complain to the do not call a million times, then the creeps call you from another number, so apparently they've been contacted, but they change the number, so you'll end up getting calls from one of their other numbers.
It stinks....I figured I'd go call them from a phone box, but try and find one!

You can learn more about how some devices can block calls and texts from specified numbers or even from unknown numbers at: Blocking calls and messages.
