The iPhone is not blocking incoming numbers, it simply is not possible.


Either your dad's phone is blocking the number on outgoing calls or he has the account set up to not display the number on outgoing calls.


Tell your dad to stop blocking his number when calling you and you will answer his calls.

He needs to dial a code prior to your number when calling you, it temporarily unblocks for just the call being made. Usually it's *82 (then the phone number).
