Re: Blocking - Blocked Callers

Several things
• Smart Limits can not block unknown numbers. So that won't help you anyway.
• Most phones have native call blocking, sadly iPhone doesn't.
• There are apps out there that do. Some are free some are not. Some are good, some are not. Buyer beware.
• One app is Mr Number. Read carefully before using.
• A more robust solution that includes such niceties as blocked number unmasking is trap call. It's a pay service.
• If you know the inbound number you can add it as a contact and then give it a custom ring tone. There are silent ringtones. Hopefully the application here is obvious.

Good Luck!

See the post right above you about smart limits a monthly service that ATT sells.  I don't use it and it has some limitiations but it may meet your needs.  There are really no other ways to block a number.

That's not right. AT&T Smart Limits CANNOT be used to block UNKNOWN callers, according to the AT&T Support Site.
