How do I block incoming numbers on an Iphone 4

I have been getting some scan calls and would like to block the numbers.  How do I do that please?

 

Thanks!

There is no way to block numbers on an iPhone, it's not a feature of the device.

 

AT&T offers a service to block numbers for a small monthly fee.

You could use a service like YouMail (free app in the app store) and set up a list of numbers to block as you find those you want to no longer receive calls from.'

 

There are other services as well.

The iPhone doesn't have the feature to block calls.

 

AT&T offers the Smart Limits for Wireless that will do it but its $4.99 month.

One cheap way is to create an entry for that number in your contacts list and then set the ring tone to "silent".  They will still go to voice mail, but it may be easier for you that way, just delete the unwanted messages.

5.00 bucks a month isn't bad at all. I used to never get calls like that on my cell til recently but if I don't recognize the number I don't answer it anyway. ;-)

how do you set the contact to Silent, I do not see an option for that when I go to Edit Contact and Ringtones.

Record your own silent audio file and convert it to a ringtone in iTunes.

Or purchase a silent one via iTunes or other online venues.

Here you go:

After you unzip the file just drag the Silence Ringtone.m4r file into your iTunes Ringtone Folder.
