Hello.
Can someone help?
Have a iphone 5 s.
Have blocked a number but for some reason they can still leave a message. Is there something I am doing wrong?

    All the block does is not ring the handset, the network still has to do something with the call, in your case it diverts on no reply or busy to the voicemail.
    I wouldn't get to eat up on the call blocking of a single number as the caller can just dial from another phone.
    Some handsets you can just accept calls from a select set of numbers, but that is very limited.

    I use the Android version myself but try the 'Mr Number' app for iPhones:

    Thanks all.
    Was more worried that I had missed something/ done something wrong.
