Not a feature of the iPhone, or any phone that I am aware of.

Blocking is done at the carrier level.

Re: Blocking a number on my Iphone 3GS

I can assume you're referring to blocking an incoming call. As far as I know, there's no way to do that. You can block your caller ID for out going calls. Go to Settings, Phone, Block my caller ID. But I don't think that's what you're asking. Perhaps you could call ATT and ask them if there is a net work wag to do it.

Save Number as Blocked or X ie.
then set a custom ringtone for them,
silent if you know how to make your own
hope they give up

"It is only possible to block incoming calls if you have AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless, a web-based parental control tool that allows you to set limits on voice, data, and messaging usage for a wireless number. You can also block incoming and outgoing calls and texts for up to 30 phone numbers by using the Blocked Number feature. Additionally, you can block calls to 411. The AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless feature is available to add to your wireless account for an additional monthly subscription fee."

But that article doesn't tell you what the Blocked Number feature is or where to find directions on how to use it...I don't want to PAY to have to block numbers!
