    Default Blocking numbers on the Iphone

    Anybody else had this problem?

    I have had someone who I turned down text me for quite some time. I don't really know them, turns out they aren't the most stable. They've turned into a nuisance, keeps texting when I'm ignoring, so want to block them. Of course iphone doesn't have that option.
    I don't want to change my number right now.

    What are the options?

    Could you block them some how through your phone carrier? I'm sure they will have something in place to block the number at source if you're being bothered by this person? Other than that, I'm not sure you could do it without changing your own number

    Not really blocking, but you could assign silent ring tones to them for phone calls and text messages.

    At least it would limit their disturbing you.

    Is it just me or do you hear the sound of tweets too? What about facing a book?

    Thanks guys. Put them on silent now.

    I would be firm with them, but it's difficult, as the person is lonely. I suspect they can't take no for an answer.
    Think I'll go into a store and ask about it.

    I'm not sure if it will help but it's a recent article.
