Blocking - "blocked" numbers that call you.

Blocking - "blocked" numbers that call you.

I have an Iphone 4s, and I recently have received a few "blocked" calls.  Is there a way that I can block these numbers from calling me.  I've heard of others that have a recording that says "this number does not accept blocked calls. If you'd like to contact this person please" type in your number or something like that.  Is that possible with AT&T?  Bottom line I don't want blocked numbers to be able to call me.  Blocked or Unknown numbers.  How can I make this happen?

 

Thanks!!

Not built into the iPhone but check out ATT's smart limits and see if it gives you any help in this area??????  I think it is something like $5/mo

There's an app called youmail that does it and it's free.

It looks like that app only stops them from leaving voicemail, it doesn't stop them from calling in the first place.  Correct?

There is one way that might work.  iOS has a feature where you can set "do not call" times, with the exception of people in your contact list.  You can set that time to 24x7.  This way the only calls that would come through would be those in your contact list.  Now the callers would have the option of leaving voice mail, but if you're getting robot calls, most hang up if they don't receive a live person.

SmartLimits DOES NOT block anonymous calls. It needs a 10 digit wireless number to block. It cannot block short codes, or blocked calls.

If you set the "do not disturb" feature that will also block all text messages and alerts from sounding.
