    Are there any programs that block phone numbers for an ATT iphone? I used to use Mcleaner when I was jailbroken, but I don't jailbreak my phone any more and was hoping for a non-jailbroken program that blocks calls.

    There is iBlacklist if you are jailbroken but nothing otherwise.

    If you mean you want to block your number from appearing on other peoples CID, just go to settings>phone>show my caller ID.

    Thanks guys I'll look into the ATT service. I used to be JB and know all about the JB programs, but I really have no desire to JB my iphone anymore.

    It costs money to block a phone number from your service provider. It's like $5 a month. It's a waste in my opinion.

    If you use Google Voice as your number that you give out, you can block numbers from getting through. And you can also have private/unknown callers say their name before coming through. I think GV allows number porting now. Maybe you could port your existing number to GV and get a new unlisted # for your phone. Not sure how complicated it would be to set this up.

    To block a number, you just put it on your "spam" list. Future calls from that number get a "this number is out of service"

    If you want to block your caller id from showing on the receiver's phone, just dial *67 then the phone number you are calling.

    I think he wants to block numbers from calling his phone.
    Not his caller id to show or not when he calls people.
