    He calls her cell phone (iPhone) dozens of times per day and if she answers he breathes into the phone. He especially calls in the middle of the night. The caller ID says "Blocked."

    We turn her phone off when we go to bed.

    She does not answer calls from "Blocked."

    He is still calling 20 to 30 times per day.

    So here is what I am wondering...

    1. Is there any way to have her phone not accept "Blocked" calls?

    2. Is there any way to trace out his number despite it being "Blocked?"


    If there is on the second question, I am going to turn him in to the police.

    If nothing can be done then we will hope he gets the idea and moves on, but if we can do something we are not doing then I want to do it.

    Many services like Verizon offer Anonymous Call Block. You just need to call your phone company. Truly though. If you want it to stop, just shoot Yeager. :D

    Just change her number. If it happens again in the future, then be worried and call the police.

    Tell your cell service provider. Call the police. Get it on record. They can and should both help. Happened to a former girlfriend of mine, long ago. Land line back then, but action was taken... the perv caught and dealt with.

    Hope it stops... one way or the other... before either you or wife become too adversely effected by it.

    Phone stalkers = lowlife scumbags!!!

    Hos, I would talk to your phone company and the police. This might seem funny to some folks, but it's a form of harassment that can be fairly frightening. You have no idea who this guy is and have no notion of his motives or capacity for violence. What he's doing is wrong and he may also be doing it to someone else. If he stops on his own, then you may have seen the last of him, but I've seen this happen with co-workers and it can get nasty if they think they can get to you.

    This is the best solution. Many cell companies offer this option.

    Of course you could always consider ..

    Next time he calls, have her answer and when she knows it him, have her turn her head as she's talking to someone else and say, "It's him! Tell them to start tracing it now!"

    That might stop it permanently :D

    Don't do it at the phone level for something like this. Phone level blocking for telemarketers, etc. are fine, but if someone is harassing you, you need to put a stop to it because it might escalate.

    How else can we do it? iPhone does not support the feature.

    I am saying that even if your iPhone did block blocked calls (aka: phone level), you would want to find a solution to have them stopped rather than blocked. The fact that you cannot block them at the phone level makes this a moot point.

    That's creepy.

    Call the police. What if he knows where you live?

    Don't look to the phone and the phone company for help, get a record from your provider and bring it to the police. Get them involved, I'm sure they have enough experience to give you direction.
