How do I permanently block a number on my iPhone?

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and choose the “Block this Caller” option. To confirm your selection, tap on “Block Contact”.
Once you have blocked the contact or number, there is no undo feature. It is also important to note that if the same person has multiple numbers, you will need to block each number individually.
You also may be able to block a number by going to the “Settings” app, scrolling down to “Phone”, and then selecting “Call Blocking & Identification”. Here you can manually add the contact or number that you would like to block.
Why does a blocked number still show up?
When a number is blocked, your phone service provider will generally still display the caller’s number on the call display. This is because carriers need the information in order to process the call and cannot block the number based on what is displayed.
Therefore, the blocked number will still appear on the caller ID, though the call itself may not be allowed through to the receiver. The blocked number may still show up in other ways as well. Your phone may show a Call Daemon Number or a text from an unrecognized number.
All of this is because your carrier is still delivering the call information to the caller.
Sometimes the person with the blocked number may be aware that the call or text was blocked. This can be for a few reasons. A call display message may show a “blocked” or “invalid” status, or the person may be calling from a different number.
In these instances, the blocked number will still be visible to the caller.
Blocking a phone number is not a 100% guarantee that the person will not get through. In some cases, the blocked number will still appear in some way since the phone company has to process the call in order for it to be blocked.
How can I find old blocked contacts?
