I keep receiving calls from a telemarketer. Is there a way to block his number to prevent him from calling?

thanks

Your provider may offer this....mine doesn't. In the UK there's the Telephone Preference Service that helps.

I have a silent ringtone associated with a contact called Nuisance. Everytime I get one of those kind of calls I add the number to my Nuisance contact. Doesn't block them but it doesn't ring and doesn't get answered!

Your carrier can. If you're looking for something phone-specific, check out this article:

Block any phone number on iPhone

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
