Step 5. Scroll all the way down and tap on Block this Caller. Then tap Block Contact.

If you want to unblock the contact again, just open up the contact page once more, scroll all the way down and then tap on Unblock this Caller.

You can do this for as many contact as you like. But remember one thing, once you start blocking contacts, you will never ever hear from them again until or unless you unblock them. So it's important that you keep tabs on who you've blocked and who isn't. You can do so by going to Settings > Messages > Blocked Contacts. If you think this list has contacts which should not be there, then it's the right time to make things the way they were.

I'm not going to lie at all, but I use this feature a lot of time. Especially for callers with whom I just don't want to converse at all. But of course, it's just a temporary block. I tend to take things up a notch when I start to get spam messages.
