    I do blocking through my service provider website. It will block text and calls when i add numbers to a block list that i create. I don't have to worry about it on any phone i have.

    Has anything changed with this? Are contacts all that's offered in Settings >Messages > block > add new?
    Never mind. Confirmed no change.

    Only for contacts. You don't get the option to block with a non contact number.

    There's this:
    If you tap the number/photo at the top



    You get this contact card where you can easily create a contact for the number. Then you can block.




    Hopefully they'll fix this.

    Me too!

    I did this test:

    - Created an undesirable contact.
    - Blocked it.
    - Deleted it.
    - Checked in: Settings -> Phone -> Blocked (Call Blocking & Identification, on iOS 10) and the number was still there.

    So we don't have to keep the undesirable contacts! (Even if labelled whatever).

    Correct. Once they are blocked, no need to keep the contact card. Deleting the contact card does not delete the block.

    I have been able to block numbers in iOS 10 just like I was in iOS 9.

    For callers, yes. But when it comes to SMS, there's no direct way to do it. So I had to figure out an alternative.

    You can't in messages. Only contacts. To block a number in messages, you must first create a contact for the number, then block it.

    I didn't have to create a contact. In messages, I opened up the detail, tapped the number and selected block caller. it's a couple more steps but eliminates the need to add the contact.

    Kudos to the Genius of the day! Was it on beta 1 too? I don't think it was on beta 1. May be wrong though.

    It wasn't. I am glad it did, I have some telemarketers to block.
