How to Block All Calls on Your iPhone Easily

Share This:

If you’re looking for a way to block all incoming calls from your iPhone, then you’ll be pleased to know that there is a setting available to do just that. Blocking all calls from your iPhone can be a great way to avoid unwanted calls, or to make sure you only receive important calls when necessary.

To get started, open the Settings app on your iPhone and select “Do Not Disturb”. Here, you can turn on the Do Not Disturb feature which will block all incoming calls. You can also choose whether you want to allow incoming messages while Do Not Disturb is enabled – this is useful if you don’t want to miss out on vital text messages but still want to stop any incoming calls.

Once you have enabled Do Not Disturb, it will remain active until you manually turn it off or set up a schedule for when it should automatically be enabled and disabled. To do this, tap “Scheduled” in the Do Not Disturb section and set the times when it should be enabled and disabled.

You can also use Control Center to quickly enable Do Not Disturb by swiping down from the top-right corner of your screen (or swiping up from the bottom of your screen on an iPhone X or newer). From here, tap the moon icon with a line through it in order to enable Do Not Disturb with just one press.

If you’d rather not use Do Not Disturb, there’s another way of blocking all incoming calls which is available on Android devices too: call barring. To access call barring settings on an Android device, open the Phone app and tap the three vertical dots in the top right corner of the screen and select “Settings”. Then tap “Calls” followed by “Call Barring” and select “None” in order to block all incoming calls when your phone is turned off.

So there you have it – two ways of blocking all incoming calls on either an iPhone or Android device! By using either Do Not Disturb or call barring settings, you’ll be able to ensure that no unnecessary intrusions bother you while your phone is turned off or while using other apps throughout your day.

Stopping Incoming Calls on an iPhone

To stop all incoming calls on your iPhone, you can enable Do Not Disturb. To do this, go to “Settings > Do Not Disturb” and toggle the switch to turn it on. You can also quickly turn on Do Not Disturb from Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of your iPhone’s screen and tapping the crescent moon icon. Once enabled, all incoming calls will be blocked until you manually disable Do Not Disturb.

Stopping Incoming Calls Without Blocking Them

You can stop incoming calls without blocking them by using call barring. To do this, open your phone app and tap on the ‘menu overflow button’ (three dots) in the top right corner of the screen (generally for Android devices, but for other devices, it is different). Then tap on Settings and click on Calls. Within the calls menu, click on the ‘call barring’ option. From here you can select which type of calls you would like to bar – such as all incoming calls, international calls or roaming calls, etc. After you have selected the type of call that you would like to bar, just toggle it to ‘on’ and all incoming calls of that type will be blocked – but not blocked in a permanent way as they will be able to be reinstated at any time.

Blocking All Calls Except Contacts on iPhone

Yes, you can block all calls except contacts on your iPhone. To do this, open the Settings app and select Do Not Disturb. Then tap Allow Calls From and choose All Contacts. This will allow only incoming calls from your contacts to come through while blocking all other calls.

Stopping Incoming Calls on an iPhone Without Airplane Mode

To stop incoming calls on your iPhone without airplane mode, you can go to Settings > Phone > Call Forwarding and select the ‘Always Forward’ option. This will forward all incoming calls to a voicemail or another number, ensuring that you will not receive any more calls. Alternatively, you can also disable incoming calls by going to Settings > Do Not Disturb and enabling the ‘Silence’ feature. This will silence all incoming calls and notifications while still allowing other functions of your phone to work.

Ignoring Calls on an iPhone Without Blocking Them

To ignore calls on your iPhone without blocking them, you can activate Focus Mode, enable Airplane Mode, silence unknown callers, turn on Silent Mode, set up a silent ringtone, switch on Call Forwarding, or block calls without blocking.

Focus Mode allows you to set specific times to mute notifications and incoming calls. You can customize it to mute notifications from certain apps and contacts. You can also choose to allow calls from a few favorite contacts.

Airplane mode will turn off all wireless features on your iPhone including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This will also stop all incoming calls from coming through until you turn the feature off again.

You can also silence unknown callers by going into the settings of your phone and turning on the ‘Silence Unknown Callers’ feature. This will send any callers who are not on your contact list straight to voicemail so that you don’t have to answer them.

If you want to be able to hear important calls but still ignore other ones, you can set up a silent ringtone for certain contacts or unknown numbers. This way when they call, the only sound will be the vibrations of the phone and not an annoying ringing tone.

Call forwarding is another way to ignore incoming calls without blocking them. This allows you to forward any incoming calls straight to voicemail so that they don’t take up your time or distract you while you are busy doing something else.

Finally, if you want more control over which numbers get through and which ones don’t then you can block certain numbers without blocking them entirely by using a third-party app such as Hiya or Truecaller. These apps allow you to block specific numbers while still allowing others through so that important contacts still have access to get in touch with you whenever they need to.

Activating Do Not Disturb on an iPhone

To put your iPhone on Do Not Disturb, go to Settings > Focus. Tap Do Not Disturb. You can then choose to turn it on manually at any time, or you can set it to turn on automatically at a certain time, location, or when using a certain app. You can also control Do Not Disturb from the Control Center by touching and holding Focus, then tapping Do Not Disturb.


In conclusion, blocking all calls on an iPhone is a simple and straightforward process. Using the Do Not Disturb feature in Settings, users can block all incoming calls with the click of a button. Additionally, users can choose to allow calls from all contacts or just favorites, allowing them to keep their phone quiet while still receiving important calls. With Do Not Disturb, iPhone users have full control over who can call them, giving them peace of mind knowing that their phones are safe and secure.
