Blocking - Blocked Callers

Is it possible to BLOCK, 'Blocked' numbers? If so how does one go about this business?

Re: Blocking - Blocked Callers

Can iBlacklist be used without jailbreaking?

No, there is no way to install it without jailbreaking your iPhone.

Not quite the same, but I have YouMail's Ditchmail service enabled for such numbers.

 

It works like this: Your phone rings, and it goes to a message saying that the number has been disconnected. Smiley Happy

While we don't have issue with the term jailbreaking, we will not allow open discussion regarding this topic on the forum as an attempt to do such actions may result in the voiding of one's device warranty and even the irreparable damaging of the device itself.

Re: Blocking - Blocked Callers

i'm not seeing how the ditchmail feature does anything about blocked or restricted numbers, it looks like you can only choose actual numbers from your contact list.

If that's directed to me, you *do* have the ability to choose the default Blocked or Unknown Number Ditchmail greeting ("We're sorry, this number does not accept calls from blocked or unknown numbers...") or even the Number Disconnected one ("We're sorry, the number you called has been disconnected"), or any one of a number of options you want.

The meaning of the term jailbreaking can be found here.  However, as Caretaker has mentioned in message 8 of this thread, although AT&T doesn't have an issue with the term "jailbreaking", this forum does not allow open discussion of this topic. Smiley Wink

Go back and re-read all the messages as it's explained.  That is not a feature of the iPhone.  The person jailbroke the iPhone to add that feature.
