How do I block a number from being able to call or/and text me? And what will they hear when they try to call me after I've blocked them?

I don't want to have to change my number because there's only a few people that I don't want contacting me anymore and I wouldn't like having to change my number when the important people already have it.

For Alltel you can block someone from texting you by sending a text message with the letter "B." Followed with the ten-digit mobile device number you wish to restrict then send it to 8888 example: B 1234567890. Make sure you space after the B. If you have Verizon, the same thing works.

I have an iPhone with AT&T service so I don't think that that would work. But thank you.
