    If it's a recent call, go to phone/recents tap the i and scroll down to bottom. Should see it there.

    I so cannot wait until I am willing to update to iOS 7. This lady called me twice yesterday and once today this time "blocked" asking for or if this is Becky. What is funny is the area code is where I am from. I believe my phone number is similar to another number minus one digit. :eek:

    There is also the silent ring tone option for that user. May help.

    I am not sure what you mean. Please elaborate. I answer the call even if it's on blocked as a friend of mine sometimes forgets to turn off her phone as blocked when she is done calling her clients.

    I clicked chris's resource and it says "The requested page could not be found." But nonetheless, I keep my phone on silent all the time. These calls are just calls thinking my number is who they are calling for. It's not a telemarketer or anything. I am on the donotcall.gov list. It's just annoying.

    I use YouMail which allows for customized outgoing voicemails to anyone you setup. I have one for blocked calls that tells the caller I don't accept blocked calls and if they really want to talk to me to unblock it and call back.

    Had a buddy one time call me from his blocked cell phone and got that. His voice mail to me started out with a bunch of laughter on his end.

    Ok, thanks. I have used iBlacklist before, the free version. I have not had to block more than 2 numbers. I will install it and if she calls me back, I will block her unless her number is "blocked" on the caller ID. I totally forgot about iBlacklist.

    I love YouMail and always forget to mention that aspect of the app.

    Yeah, this combined with my ring back tones from AT&T makes my phone a fun phone to call.

    Are you on iOS 7 now?
