Launch the Phone app from the Home screen of your iPhone. Tap the Recents or Contacts button at the bottom of your screen. Tap on the Info button next the name of the contact you want to block in the Recents tab or tap the name of the contact in the Contacts tab. Tap on Block this Caller at the very bottom.

Accordingly, how do you block a phone number from texting you?

Block someone from calling or texting you one of two ways:
  1. To block someone who has been added to your phone's Contacts, go to Settings > Phone > Call Blocking and Identification > Block Contact.
  2. In instances where you want to a block a number that isn't stored as a contact in your phone, go to the Phone app > Recents.

What happens when you block a number on your cell phone?

First off, when a blocked number tries to send you a text message, it won't go through, and they will likely never see the “delivered” note. On your end, you'll see nothing at all. As far as phone calls are concerned, a blocked call goes directly to voice mail.
