Nowadays people leave their phone numbers everywhere – on websites when registering, at the bank when applying for a loan, when signing contracts and in many other places. Often this leads to the fact that the phone number gets into the database, which later can be resold and later on one may receive a lot of advertisements through phone calls. Calls can be made from the same numbers dozens of times a day. To get rid of such annoying callers, iPhone provides the opportunity to block a contact by adding it to the “Blocked List”.

What happens when you add a contact to the “blocked list”
If you add a contact to a “Blocked List” on your iPhone, it will be completely blocked. This means that your smartphone will no longer notify you about calls from this person. That is, if a person calls your phone from a number that is on your “Blocked List”, he will first hear one long beep, and then intermittent beeps. It will create an effect as if your phone number is busy, but you will not see such an incoming call on your smartphone at all.
Please note: Blocked person will not be able to unambiguously understand whether his number is blocked or no by the type of sound signal he will be hearing.
