The IPHONE, HOW TO BLOCK TEXT & CALLS

The iPhone is a nice tool to have and can provide a wealth of information. You can set it up for almost any emergency as I have reported on in another post.

Today I would like to share something new I have learned about stopping the crazy rings, by TEXT or an unwanted local neighbor wanting to make you a deal from some island operation. HAHA.

First, let's address Blocking unwanted calls.

The RING looks like a local call and you step out of a meeting to take the call. It's nothing and you want to stop these disruptive calls.

HOW TO SETUP THE BLOCK,
1. GO INTO SETTINGS and CLICK ON "DO NOT DISTURB"
Now you can set up a scheduled time when you want to BLOCK and you will soon learn there are many OPTIONS to BLOCKING A CALL.

2. ALLOW CALLS FROM ALL CONTACTS. Now anyone not on your contacts list can call, but your phone will not ring. At a time of your choosing, you can go into your RECENT calls and review them. Now when you find a number, with NO MESSAGE. tip the little "I" on the right nest to the number and a contact screen will appear. PAN down to the bottom and select "BLOCK THIS CALLER"


HOW TO BLOCK A TEXTED MESSAGE
This tip is for iPhones only.

1. So the TEXT message arrives in MESSAGES and you click to VIEW. The iPhone Rings and shows a TEXT message "654-67" and a message unwanted by you. Now the number will appear something like the one shown above or you will see all ten numbers.

2. LOOK Close on the second screen at the number on top and to the right, you will see a little arrow something like. "645-67>" This little arrow is the key to stopping the ring.

3. Now I have BIG hands but even I could click on that little arrow >. Once you do three little ICONS will appear under the Number. Look close at the "I" for (INFO) on the right and click.

4. Now, this next screen will let you do two things. TURN OFF AUDIO alerts. Or click next to the name or NUMBER another little > arrow. This will take you to a CONTACT screen.

5. Once on the contact screen of the NUMBER or CALLER. PAN Down to the bottom and click on "BLOCK THIS CALLER"


Please let me know if this has changed your life. haha joking or let me know you like or did not like Thanks.

Now, this you may like or NOT. I once had to call APPLE to have them remotely go inside my iPhone to fix the problem. But you may have another issue the local iPhone store can not help you wil on your iPhone. Here is the iPhone APPLE HELP number: 800-694-7466

YOU CAN ALSO JUST AD WORDS
Congratulations
Happy Birthday

I shut off all calls and messages that are not in my Contact List. Under Phone and Message in settings.
Silence Unknown Callers is on in Phone settings.
Filter Unknown Senders is set to on in Messages settings.

Before using the above settings. Be sure to read what happens to theses Calls and Messages below the settings.

Speed reading may not be your thing. I'm sure your just trying to be helpful ronjhill. I do see that I coved that step in part one above. Unless you're trying to imply something with your last statement "READ WHAT HAPPENS" what are you talking about ronjhill what are we going to miss that you stated will happen?
