Can anyone help with this problem? Does the iPhone4 even have the capability of blocking calls?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1

    Call your carrier and ask them to block the callers. It is the only way that really works. Your caller can block the call at their server and it never gets to your phone.


    Most of the apps that claim to do it in fact don't.

    The iPhone does not have the ability to block calls. What some people do is create a blank ringtone and assign that to the numbers you want to block. Then you won't hear the call come in. If you really want to block the number, you'll have to ask your cell carrier.
