iPhone blocking anonymous callers

Post by niin » Mon Jun 27, 2016 8:59 am

I know this is not at all an IT support forum but I am little bit clueless at the moment and thought maybe one of you had this issue before.
A friend of mine owns an iPhone and keeps getting calls by someone hiding his number. I tried to find a way to block callers that hide their numbers but everything I find doesn't seems to work.

I tried:
- several anti virus apps that have the ability to block anonymous calls on Android but as it seems not on iOS (avast, Avira,...)
- blocking every call from a number not saved in contacts (doesn't fit)
- something called 'TrapCall' but that seems to be only available in the US

Maybe someone has an idea if not the last plan is to get a new phone number.

Solution 3 sounds like it would be what you want? Although, from how you phrased things, it seems you may have already stumbled across this.

He's asking how to ignore anonymous callers, not how to stop them from trying to call you

Since it isn't my iPhone I told my friend to try it and she said she is not able to block contacts.. Only numbers..
I try to get access to an iPhone somehow since that sounds a little strange to me lol. At least on Android it works.

Thanks for the help ^.^

Btw didn't have that page before cause I mostly found German searching results ;)
