Can you block making international calls on iPhone?

Answered by James Kissner

You can block making international calls on an iPhone. There are a few different methods you can use to accomplish this.

1. Use an Unknown Caller or Silence Unknown Callers: One option is to use the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature. This feature can be found in the Settings app under “Phone” and then “Silence Unknown Callers.” When enabled, it will automatically silence calls from numbers that are not in your contacts, which can help reduce the risk of scams and unwanted international calls.

2. Block Unknown Numbers: Another option is to block unknown numbers. This can be done by going to the Phone app, selecting the “Recents” tab, finding the number in question, and tapping on the “i” icon next to it. From there, you can scroll down and select “Block this Caller.” This will prevent calls from that number from getting through to your phone.

3. Use the “Contact Calls Only” feature: Additionally, iPhones have a feature called “Contact Calls Only” that can completely turn off international calls on your device. To enable this feature, go to the Settings app, select “Phone,” and then choose “Call Blocking & Identification.” From there, you can toggle on the “Contact Calls Only” option. This will only allow calls from numbers that are in your contacts to reach your iPhone, effectively blocking all other calls, including international ones.

It’s important to note that while these methods can help reduce the risk of unwanted international calls, they may not completely eliminate them. Scammers and telemarketers are constantly finding new ways to bypass these measures. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to remain vigilant and exercise caution when receiving calls from unknown numbers.

I hope this information helps you in blocking international calls on your iPhone!
