    To the best of my knowledge, it can't be done.

    I have heard of some people who have gone through their service provider to have a number blocked but I can't say if that's fact or fiction.

    The easiest thing to do is this. If you know the number you want to avoid or block, just add it to your address book and name it "Ignore This Call" or "Don't Answer".

    It won't stop your phone from ringing but at least you'll know that it's someone you want to avoid.

    We use Smart Limits with my daughter's phone. One of the options there is number blocking. It does cost around $5/month, I believe. And, our carrier is AT&T. Not sure about other carriers' offerings.

    Bottom line (this question has been asked about a million times here, you should have done a search) -- without jailbreaking the iPhone, you CAN'T block individual numbers. In certain legal circumstances you can have your carrier block a number, and some carriers offer the service as an add-on.

    Go to iTunes Store...get to Applications..in Search box type in iBlacklist. Download the app iBlacklist Manager ($.99..and well worth it!). Sync to your iPhone. You can now type in the numbers you want blocked and sync with all the unwanted tele-marketing numbers that are now able to call you on your cell phone.

    I just checked the reviews for this APP and there are an incredible number of 1 star ratings claiming the APP is a rip off!
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Ya, I checked out that App as well and it looks like a complete waste of money.
