There are very few things that are more annoying than unwanted cell phone calls. Macworld reader Douglas Cowan asks a question about a way to block those calls.
With the ever increasing number of unwanted phone calls and voicemails, is it possible to block all phone calls except from those in the contact list?
Yes, although it means some tradeoffs. The Do Not Disturb feature Apple introduced a few releases of iOS ago lets you suppress most notifications, sounds, texts, and calls. However, you can choose to let certain things bypass that mode.
- Open Settings > Do Not Disturb.
- Tap Allow Calls From.
- You have several options, but one is All Contacts.
