How to add a person to the block list on iOS 7?

The recently launched iOS 7 lets you take delight in several features that are new, eagerly awaited, and much required as well. One of them to mention here is the facility it offers to a user to block people (unwanted and strangers) from contacting them. This includes preventing people from contacting them either through message, phone, and even FaceTime.

Here is how you can do it.

To block a person who is not on your Contact List:

  • Go to the ‘Recent Call History’ of your phone.
  • Select the number you want to block.
  • Tap on the ‘i’, located next to the phone number.
  • Select the ‘Block this caller’ option at the bottom of the screen.

To block a person from messaging you or reaching you on FaceTime:

  • Go to the Settings option on your iPhone.
  • Select the Messages option.
  • Scroll to the bottom to view the settings for phone, messages, and FaceTime.
  • Select the particular setting you wish to be out of reach from the specific person you want to block.
  • Press on the ‘Blocked’ button and tap it to add more names and phone numbers.
  • Confirm the action when prompted.

Presto! And iOS 7 will block the particular people from contacting you via FaceTime, send you text messages, and even call you.


  • Once blocked, the person can nonetheless send you messages which will be delivered from their end but will never reach you. All his/her calls will end up being answered by an automated voice and you will not even have to bother explaining all this
  • If at any point in time you wish to contact that person, you can easily roll back the settings and make yourself easily accessible to him/her.
