    Hi Guys,
    Someone (probably a computer) in Morocco keeps calling me. It's getting a bit annoying, 30 calls per hour. If I answer, I don't hear anybody.
    The number that's calling me is +212 (morocco) 602 4661 70.

    I'm looking for a way to block this number. I have tried just about everything I could think of. I even made a new ringtone, especially for this number, without sound. But every time I'm working with my phone, the call's just keep coming in! I can't even use my phone to listen to music anymore!

    I've tried blocking the number through my carrier, but T-Mobile Netherlands says they can't help me because it's not a Dutch number. They can only block national-numbers... The only solution they had for me was to change my number (Changing my number, because I'm being harassed by someone/something!! And it would also cost me 35 euro!!)... There must be another solution to this problem!

    One solution I've heard about, is jailbreaking my phone and instaling iBlacklist.
    But I don't want to jailbreak my phone (everytime I do, my battery gets drained)..

    If you have a solution to my problem, please help! I'm desperate!!

    If the carrier won't do it (which is BS, they should be able to block any number..but that's NL carriers for you..useless) then yeah you'll probably have to jailbreak. Just install iBlacklist and don't get carried away and your performance/battery life shouldn't be affected.

    Weird alternative: could always make a new contact for the number and turn off sounds/vibrations for that contact. Kind of ghetto but better than nothing.

    Thanx mKTank, I did already give it a silent ringtone.. The problem is, as long as you are being called, you cannot use your phone. If you press the reject button, the start calling every 2 minutes..

    I have contacted my carrier (TMobile NL), they are not able to block a number (I know, total bullcrap, but they won't..).
    I called to another carrier (KPN), they also are not able to block a number (again, total bullcrap!).
    I called Apple Care, they don't have any solution. There isn't an app that could block the call (not if it isn't jailbroken).. So they told me I should contact the police.
    Called the police, they cannot do anything. My life is not being threatened, and it's a foreign number so they won't be doing anything about it!

    So, just a small recap, TMobile, KPN, Apple and the Police are all not able to help... HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE!!??!? How is it possible for someone/something to just keep harassing someone, without anyone being able to help!
    Is it that hard to BLOCK A FRIGGIN' NUMBER??

    I didn't want to JB my phone, but if there isn't any other option .. I will have to do it...

    Can you go online to your account on your provider and enter a number there to be blocked? Here in the US on Verizon Wireless we can go online and block 5 numbers of our choice. I dont know if this includes international numbers or not but worth a shot.
