Is there any way to block incoming calls on an iphone 4?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

    Call blocking has to be done at the carrier level, so contact your carrier to see if they offer this feature. Some do, some don't. There is no setting on an iPhone to block calls.

    Hi wjosten,

     

    I am new with Iphone, but I have been using smartphone since 2004. I always had a program called "call firewall" and it worked perfect. You don't need your carrier to block a call. It can be done on your phone, but you need a program to do it. I am looking for such an app too.

    Believe whatever you want. No mobile phone can block any calls. True call blocking MUST be done at the carrier level. In your case, the call is still delivered, by your carrier, to your phone. All the app does is intercept it before your phone rings. The actual call is NOT blocked. There are no such apps for a non-jailbroken iPhone.

    Hi I have the same issue with an abusive and threatening caller Vodafone said they cant block the number and suggested I call the police, not much help from either the manufacturer or the carrier. if it can be done on a jail brocken unit Apple should make it available.

    Assign a silent ringtone to the number. Call will come in,

    but you will not hear any alert and call will go to voicemail.
