    Hey, I need to block a number because it's an extremely annoying girl that won't leave me alone. Would I need to call AT&T? Thanks

    and/or get gvmobile and then block the number*

    *assumes you use your google voice number for phone applications

    i believe iBlacklist you may have to pay for after a trial period. but as far as i know, you cant block a single number on AT&T you'd have to completely change your number. you can just not answer the girl and eventually she'll go away.

    Not positive.

    like I said, call AT&T and see what your options are. Worst case, you need to change your number and in my opinion, thats more annoying than some dumb broad calling/texting me.

    Make or find a silence ringtone. That way you won't even notice when she calls.

    LoL +1!

    I use iBlacklist and find it works pretty good for the most part. If you download it you can have 2 numbers on it but will need to pay for it if you wish to go beyond those 2 numbers. Of course you will need to JB, but what person in their right mind has an iPhone that isn't JB'n :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure if it's coincidence or not, but I typed "DO NOT ANSWER" in ALL CAPS in the last name portion of this one particular number....when this person calls, the phone does not ring, goes straight to voicemail and shows up as a missed call. I haven't tested it on anyone else's number - but I've noticed it happening many times for this particular person.

    If it works for you - let me know....maybe it's a trick Apple doesn't know about either. :D

    Is she a stalker? If not, why not tell her she's annoying you and that you aren't taking her calls anymore? Then double-push the sleep button when she does call back and it'll go straight to vm. She'll hate you, but it works. And if you never talk to her again, it doesn't really matter that she hates you, right?

    I always give out my GV number so that i could block whomever I want. Many more options. Have my GV ring my cell, home, office etc.
