There are two simple ways to block international calls on iPhones: use an app or your iPhone’s settings. This article teaches you how to use different apps and adjust your iPhone’s settings to block international calls.
Method 1: Use iPhone’s Silence Unknown Caller
- Open the Settings app.
- Scroll down until you find the “Phone” app.
- Tap the phone icon.
- Search for “Call Silence and Blocked Contacts.”
- Turn on “Silence Unknown Caller.”
When you enable “Silence Unknown Caller,” you can silence international calls on your iPhone. So, when you receive an incoming international call, the iPhone mutes it.
Of course, this only works for international numbers not stored in your contacts. And, you will still see these calls on your iPhone’s miss-called logs.
Method 2: Allow Calls Only From Contacts
- Open the “Settings” app of your iPhone.
- Search for the “Do Not Disturb” option. Tap it.
- Turn on “Do Not Disturb” mode.
- Then, tap the “Allow Calls From” option.
- Then, choose the “All Contacts” option under “Allow Calls From.”
Method 2 stops incoming calls on your iPhone from anyone not saved in your iPhone’s “Contacts.” The blockage works for both international, regional, and local calls.
Method 3: Block Unknown Numbers
- Open the “Phone app.”
- Tap “Recents.”
- Tap the (‘i’) symbol (right side of the unknown number).
- Scroll down and tap Block this Caller.
Method 3 lets you block specific numbers. You will no longer receive calls from these numbers unless you unblock them.
Method 4: Use An App To Block International Calls On iPhone
You can use an app to block international calls on your iPhone. The most popular apps for blocking international calls are:
Each app has a specific setup method, so you’ll have to download one and go through the setup process. All the apps are easy to use and functional.
The Wrap Up
The most convenient way to block international calls on iPhone is by using an app. However, if you prefer not to use an app, you can do a few other things by using your iPhone’s built-in settings. For example, you could mute incoming calls from unknown callers or block unknown numbers. No matter the case, blocking incoming international calls is hassle-free and quick.
