    How to use the block feature in ios7

    The easiest way to block someone is using their contact. Open the contact info of who you want to block and then scroll to the bottom of the screen.
    You will find a button to block them. Pressing this button will prevent the person from being able to call you, send you text messages, or reach you over FaceTime.

    They don't have to be in your contacts to block them. If theyve recently contacted you.
    Access a persons contact through the lowercase i in a circle icon.
    Look for the block option at the bottom of the page.

    Remember, the person will know that you've blocked them.
    They will hear a few rings interrupted by a busy signal.

    If it's a text, it will look like it was delivered. If youre sending an iMessage it will show delivered like normal, but won't show or alert you.

    If someone youve blocked tries to FaceTime you, theyll see the normal connection, but you will never receive anything and it rings on their end forever.

    iPhone blocking goes one way so you can still call, text and stalk them if you want

    If your blocked victim uses Apples read receipts, you wont receive them post-block. They wont see yours either.

    Another thing to note is even if youve blocked the callers number or if they use services like *67, it will still make your phone ring. The call will show up on your phone as No Caller ID.

    If you decide you want to read some blocked messages, you cant.... even if you unblock the sender. Those messages are gone.

    Theres currently no way to block someone from iMessaging your Mac the iPhone block seems to be tied to the physical device, not your SIM, and not your Apple ID or iCloud account.

    This also means that even if youve associated email information with a blocked contact, the iPhone wont block their emails.

    Ya my sister had came to me the other day and asked me how to block someone she thought it was going to be something that was a pain. I showed her and 2 sec later she was like ... Oh really lol
    So I pretty much found as much info on it as I could and complied it because I figured it might be useful.

    I haven't tried it personally to see what it does, but callers that I have blocked can still leave voicemail. I never get a notification for it but it does show up in VVM under 'blocked messages' just under the 'deleted messages' list.
