Block and unblock a contact or number on your phone

If you're receiving spam calls or someone won't leave you alone, you can block their phone number. That way, their calls and text messages will no longer appear on your phone. But don't worry, you can always unblock them if you change your mind. 

Block Numbers from the Contacts App

The power is in your hands. Block unwanted numbers from contacting you. 

Navigate to and open Contacts, and then touch the contact you wish to block. Touch More Options, and then touch Block contact

Note: Even if you block a contact, they will still appear in your Contacts list.
