based on my experience with Verizon, most carriers don't allow you to block numbers anymore...unless you're willing to pay for that service! i know Verizon charged, but can't speak for AT&T. hopefully iPhone will have an app for that free of charge. but for now, there is this program: iBlacklist for iPhone - Call filter - Call Block - Sms Mms Filter. the free version offers 2 blocked #'s only. but the paid version ($12 i think) allows more.
there are other ways of dealing with it too. like adding the number as a contact and setting the ringtone to silent (i think you can do individual ringtones on iPhone, right??). or (last resort) change your number.

That hardly seems fair to those people who want to legitimately leave you voicemail.
The nice thing about the visual voicemail is...if you don't know them and don't want to listen to the voicemail, you can just delete it without listening.

In the UK, you just have to dial a number to turn on/off voicemail so I guess it's the same with other carriers. With my previous handset (Razr) I'm sure I could adjust the settings on the phone (divert to voicemail/other no. if unanswered/busy/out of service). This would be a useful feature for the iPhone particularly when roaming - just toggle voicemail on/off. I wonder if they'll pay me for this idea

there are added means of ambidextrous with it too. like abacus the amount as a acquaintance and ambience the ringtone to bashful (i anticipate you can do alone ringtones on iPhone, right??). or (last resort) change your number.
