How often do you get annoying calls or text messages? I seem to get them everyday from the same numbers trying to get me to upgrade my phone, tell me I can make a claim and how I can get money back from PPI (payment protection insurance).
For all the criticism that iOS 7 got for its design they did add in some useful functionality including the ability to block calls and text messages.
What I’ve been doing is asking them to call back and immediately blocking the contact so that they cannot get through. The only problem is it does not work if they have withheld the number. But I have managed to reduce it down.
This was also useful recently when on holiday knowing some people would still try and get in touch that I did not need to speak to, this can bump up call charges as you end up paying too, and quite a bit, if you happen to be abroad.
Here in this video I show you how to block contacts.
