Do you want to protect yourself from international outgoing calls on your iPhone? If so, you’re in the right place. In this blog post, we’ll explain how to block international outgoing calls on your iPhone.

International calls are often more expensive than regular domestic ones. Furthermore, some international callers may be scammers trying to take advantage of unsuspecting victims. That’s why it’s important to know how to block international outgoing calls on your iPhone.

Fortunately, Apple makes it easy to do just that. Here’s what you need to do:

First, go to Account Overview and select My Digital Phone. Choose My Voicemail & Phone Features and then Phone Features. On the Phone Features tab, scroll down until you see Outgoing Calls and select International Call Blocking. You can then turn it on or off as needed.

If you want to add an extra layer of security, you can also use the “Contact Calls Only” feature on your device which will completely lock out any international call attempts from coming throuh on your phone. Keep in mind that this feature will only allow incoming and outgoing calls from numbers listed in your Contacts app – so make sure that you only add contacts that you trust!

It is also possible to silence unknown callers or block specific numbers from calling or texting you if needed. To do this, simply go into Settings > Do Not Disturb > Silence Unknown Callers and toggle it ON or OFF as needed. You can also manually block specific numbers by going into Settings > Phone > Blocked Contacts and adding the number there as well.

By following these steps, you can rest assured knowing that all of your incoming and outgoing calls are safe and secure!
