My husband would like to block calls from a specific area code. He’s been getting an incredible amount of spam calls and is fed up. Most are from a specific area code. He’s been researching how to do this but hasn’t had any success. So I thought I’d ask here! TIA…

I’m not sure you can block an entire area code.

What about st the carrier level? I know Tmobile has a feature to block spam calls and even marks as “possible spam”. Works pretty well.

And not that I think this really works at all, but what about the Do Not Call registry?

As far as I know, you can't block a certain area code, I know some of my older android phones with custom ROM's had a feature that would allow you to block all numbers beginning with a certain prefix using a star before the number.

This is an issue I have always had with IOS, with all the spams calls folks folks receive these days, you would figure the developers at Apple would be taking notice and incorporate this feature right into the OS and make it user configurable?
