    Block anonymous calls on iPhone. IPhones offer an easy way to block anonymous calls. So, if you get calls from annoying call centers, you can now easily block them. There are so many reasons to block a number: an ex who won't stop calling, call centers that break, an aunt who wants to check you in to find out why you're not married yet.


    But, what if you don't want to be called by people you don't know, and who don't show their phone number? Unfortunately, there is still no direct way. But, don't worry, we have a method for you. Just configure a simple option that automatically blocks all anonymous calls and also all calls that do not show the phone number.



    Do Not Disturb is an extremely useful feature on iPhones. It allows you to stay focused on what you are doing, not allowing the phone to distract you every time a message or a phone call comes in. Do Not Disturb can be scheduled or can be activated manually.

    Then, you can use Do Not Disturb mode for block anonymous calls on iPhone and also all calls that do not show the phone number.

    How to block anonymous calls on iPhone

    1. On your iPhone, go to “Settings -> Do Not Disturb”. Here, turn the switch next to "Manual" to "On".
    2. Now, tap on "Allow Calls From". By default, this will probably be set to "Favorites". Change it to "All contacts".
    3. Go back, and under the section that says "Silence", select "Always". This will ensure that you no longer receive anonymous calls, even if you are using the phone and the screen is on.

    Or….




    Phase 1: Open the call log.

    Phase 2: Tap the unsaved contact, then tap the icon (I).

    Phase 3: Srun down and click Block, this caller.


    If you want to unblock the contact, please follow the steps below and tap on unblock.

    Final report: to view the contact you have blocked you can go to settings and open your phone, then click on Call Blocking and Identification and all blocked contacts will be visible whether they are saved or unsaved.

    That's all.

    Since you haven't turned on Do Not Disturb mode, it won't alert you to anonymous calls. Now you can go back to your work, and no longer be bothered by anyone who is not in your contact list.

    You will never get spam calls again!

    The only drawback to using this solution is that you will no longer receive notifications for calls that have been made from a number that is not in your contact list, but that is not a spam number.

    While it may be okay not to get annoying calls, it could be a problem if the other person is in an emergency and needs your help, and their number isn't in your contact list.


    Then, in the Do Not Disturb section, be sure to turn on Repeated Calls.

    All of this means that if someone calls you from an unknown number and then calls you again, within three minutes, your iPhone won't block the call and notify you of an incoming call.


    I don't know why there is no option to directly block unknown calls on iPhones. Fortunately, if you really want to block these calls, this solution is great for you. Be careful though, because if you use it, you will no longer receive calls from numbers that have not been saved in your contact list.


    To block a number you know instead, go to the Phone app, select Recent. Find the number and click the I button in the circle next to it. You will get a screen with information about the call and the actions to be taken, scroll down to Block this caller.
