How to Block a Number on Iphone 6
You can block phone numbers, contacts, and email addresses on your device. In addition, features such as filtering iMessage messages from unknown senders and the ability to complain about unwanted iMessage messages are also supported.
Block a phone number, contact, or email address
There are several ways to block phone numbers, contacts, and email addresses.
In the “Phone” program, go to the “Recent” section and click next to the phone number or contact that you want to block. Scroll down the screen and select “Block caller”.
In FaceTime, click next to the phone number, contact, or email address you want to block. Scroll down the screen and select “Block caller”.
In the Messages program, open a conversation, tap a contact at the beginning of the conversation, and then. Click the name, phone number or email address, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click “Block Subscriber”.
In the Mail program, open the email message with the contact you want to block, and select the contact at the top. Click Block Contact.
After blocking the phone number or contact, the blocked subscriber will still be able to leave messages on the answering machine, but you will not receive notifications about this. Messages sent and received will not be delivered. The contact will also not receive notifications that his call or message has been blocked. If you block the email address in the Mail program, it will be moved to the trash. Email Blocking works on all Apple devices.

Filter iMessage messages from unknown senders
You can filter iMessage messages from subscribers not saved in your contact list.
To filter iMessage messages, go to the Settings menu “Messages” and enable the “Filter by Sender” function.
In the “Messages” program, the “Unknown senders” tab will appear, but you will not receive notifications about iMessage messages from subscribers from this list.
Informing about spam in the Messages program
In Messages, you can mark iMessage messages as unwanted. When you receive an iMessage message from a subscriber who is not in your contact list, you will see a “Report spam” link.
Click it, and then click “Delete and report spam.” Messaging will redirect Apple sender and message details and delete the message from your device. After that, it will not be possible to restore the message.
A spam message does not block subsequent messages from this sender. If you do not want to receive such messages, you must block the contact.
To report unwanted SMS and MMS messages, contact your service provider.
