    I would like to create a list of callers that I want to decline their calls. Can someone advise how to do it or need a 3rd party app. Thanks!

    You can use iBlacklist if your iphone is jailbroken.

    If you're using Verizon, you can block numbers through their website.

    Same on Sprint, you can set up a block list for calls and texts, in your online account.

    Youmail is pretty cool as well. It won't block calls, but you can pick a disconnected message and it has some kind of tone that pre-recorded calls will look for and know to stop calling you. I have iBlacklist and it's decent, but it doesn't work all the time as I've had callers get through and I don't bother jailbreaking my phone anymore anyway.

    You need more than 20 callers blocked?
    Maybe you should consider changing your phone number.

    I wanted this before I jailbroke. Ended up messing around with Do Not Disturb and a few apps that use that. Ultimately, I settled on creating a contact called BLOCKED CALLER and assigning a ringtone of Silent and a text tone of Silent to that contact. Any number that comes in that I want blocked I add to that contact. It's not true call blocking but the call goes to voicemail. That's good enough for me because my old WinMo phone had an app that did the same thing, but from an internal list.

    Once I jailbroke I found a tweak called RingerX VIP. That tweak allows you to set different tones to groups (not just individuals) and does a few other things as well. I have it set on my BLOCKED CALLER contact to mute the phone for those numbers in the contact.

    I'm also on Sprint, so any real caller I don't want even getting through I can add at their site. The only downside with doing this with Sprint is that you also block outgoing calls. So, if for any reason you do want to call one of those blocked numbers, you'd have to remove it from the list on Sprint's website.
