Push the power button on the top of the phone twice. The first time, the call is silenced. The 2nd time the call is rejected/directed to voice mail (if set up).
Coming in iOS 6, you'll have the option to set "Do Not Disturb" mode in the device's Settings. DND allows you to block out a time window where calls and alerts will be silenced. You can optionally configure it to allow calls from "favorites" or repeated calls to still come through.
When the phone is locked (the screen is off) On iOS 6, it show slide to answer and a little phone, that, when you slide it up, shows more options, such as accept / decline and more options. On iOS 5, it only shows slide to answer. Like Mark said, tap the power button once to silence the call, twice to reject it. When the phone is in use (screen on, ...
If you have a GSM phone, you can just pop out the SIM card. You've now got a GPS capable iPod touch while you run. If you normally have notifications coming in over WiFi networks that your phone might join during the run, optionally turn WiFi off to be safe. If you don't have service through a SIM, getting rid of everything but the voice call ...
Yes you can! Here are the steps: Open Automator and create an Automator Service, with a single Run AppleScript action, containing the following code: tell application "System Events" if checkbox "Mute" of window 1 of application process "FaceTime" exists then click checkbox "Mute" of window 1 of application process "FaceTime" end if end ...
You can always make a silent ring tone as your default ring tone. Be sure to assign ring tones to your contacts that you want to hear from.
Before iOS6 the short answer is no. The iPhone's and iOS flexibility in certain aspects is really (sometimes for the good) small. iOS doesn't support the old traditional "modes" where you could set your old phone in "meeting" or "some name" and then set the ringtones for each individual mode, and even silence and turn off vibrate. I remember an old Nokia ...
I assume that you have checked that the hardware switch on the side of the phone isn't set to silent? Right near the volume buttons is a switch, if it shows red then your phone is on silent, flick it up and the phone is no longer on silent.
Without jailbreaking, your only option is the network operator's (AT&T, Verizon, etc) blacklist option. There may be a monthly fee, $5/mo on AT&T for example, but will allow you block receiving calls from any number you like. iBlacklist will work if your phone is jailbroken, but it costs $11.99 - a little high in my opinion.
As someone posted in your question, it's not true call blocking in that the call still connects to your service but the phone silently rejects it without any indication to you. Since it still hits your voicemail, it's not really blocked, just not answered (more like Do Not Disturb) I just tried this with my wife's phone. When she called, she initially hears ...
I've experimentally checked the iOS behavior by trying to initiate a phone call from one of my apps. Here are the results: It is possible to programatically start a phone call without user confirmation. I've just written a single line of code that is executed right after the App has been loaded. Meaning that if your App is in the foreground it can start a ...
I was wrong! My other answer was incorrect and has been deleted. There's an app in the App Store called "Blacklist" that looks to do exactly what you want. I missed it before because I'm not in the US and it isn't available in my country, but your profile says you're in Philly, so you should be golden. $1.99. ...
You have four options. Turn on Do Not Disturb and lock the screen (or configure it to block all calls whether the screen is locked or not on iOS 7) Place the phone in AirPlane mode - this disables the cellular data, SMS and cellular calls as well as WiFi. You can turn on WiFi while in AirPlane mode to access data and still be undisturbed. Use your carrier ...
moving mine in and of the holster moved the ringer button to the off position accidently. Glad it was something that simple....but sure stumped me for a while. the ringer button is the one above the volume buttons on the left side
There's an app for that™. WiChat will allow you to chat with the Bonjour protocol, that is, chatting with people on the local network without connecting to an external server.
No unfortunately this isn't a feature that is currently supported on iOS (I suppose it would be possible on a jailbroken device).
iOS 8 has this new feature called Continuity. Which basically means you can make and receive phone calls on your iOS devices as long as your iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network. Source: Apple Go to the phone with the active cellular SIM and you can disable this in settings app: Phone Calls on Other Devices Allow Calls (turn them all off or disable some ...
I've made a test app to check this. App can open URL such as tel://123456789 only when it is in foreground and active. When I call this code even just after entering the background state, the API to open this URL did nothing. So to answer your question - apps won't be able to make a call without your knowledge. To test this paste this in your AppDelegate: ...
The easiest solution I can think of is just to forward your calls. On my AT&T phone, I can do this right from the settings app — send them to another number (Google Voice is a good suggestion, though make sure GVoice won't just send the call right back to your iPhone!) I think I remember reading that CDMA phones don't support this automatic forwarding ...
As far as I know 3rd-party, Apple-sanctioned apps - ones you'd find in the App Store, jailbroken apps notwithstanding - do not have access to the phone beyond dialing. In other words you won't find anything in the App Store.
There are several bluetooth solutions, that should be useful: Phone Amego ($29) - This should do the trick. Works and has interesting features. I recommend it. BluePhoneElite 2 - No longer developed and supported. I see almost everything vanished, but I think you should be able to locate a working copy somehow. Edit: As of OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS8 ...
There are several apps that will do this in the iTunes Store. The search to use is "walkie talkie". I recommend you look first at Walkie-Talkie - iOS.
I was anticipating a problem like this a while back so I turned to Google voice to help. This won't help you now, or even after the fact, but for future reference, you get spam control from the dashboard and some other neat features. I found that I give my Google voice number out more freely because I trust the tools that allow me to block as needed. Here's ...
Yes, it is possible. Numbers can be entered using the keyboard. The correct tones will be produced and transmitted on your Yosemite Mac.
I found my history at: ~/Library/Application Support/CallHistoryDB/CallHistory.storedata
iOS Tweak Developer Elias Limneos has released an app on Cydia called Audio Recorder (originally called Call Recorder). So it's finally possible to record calls locally on the device without having to call via premium rate numbers! Audio beeps can be disabled but there is a forced 'This Call is being Recorded' message played at the start to the other ...
There is no easy way since that part of the software and hardware is secured. Of course it's possible in the theoretical sense as the voice recorder and music mixing apps show the power of signal processing hardware and software has access to both streams of sound. Someone would need to re-do some or all of the iOS code and change it. But what's simple ...
Just recently I discovered an app actually able to do it properly, but just for SIP calls. It's called MobileVOIP and it's on Apple Store! :D So I hope this does answer your question. Even if it's not recording a phone call, I believe it shows it's theoretically possible.
