I remember someone telling me a way to block someone, but I can't remember. (without calling the company) Also, will it tell them they are blocked?

Call your carrier.

I think you have to call the carrier and add something extra to your line. I paid 4.99 extra a month to block someone with AT&T.

That.
Go online to your account and you can block up to 5 people for free. And if for any reason you didn't want them blocked anymore, you can also unblock them at any time. And no it does not show them that you blocked them

1. Your carrier might be able to block individual numbers. AT&T has an optional feature called Smart Limits for Wireless that runs $4.99 per month. One of the many functions is the capability to block up to 30 numbers from calling or texting your iPhone.

2. Owners of jailbroken iPhones can install apps from the Cydia Store that will block phone numbers.iBlacklist is fully compatible with all iOS devices, iOS 5 and older firmware. For a one-time cost of $12, iBlacklist adds a plethora of useful features to your iPhone including the ability to block calls and texts from individual numbers.

3. Make sure you've registered your iPhone number with the National Do Not Call Registry. This will not stop texts, but it will require most telemarketers to stop calling your line within 31 days. Complaints can also be filed using the same website, and phone number registrations with the service never expire.

4. Assign a silent ringtone to the numbers you don't want to answer. This stops calls from bothering you, but texts will still sound an alert. The iPhone doesn't come with a silent ringtone by default, but you can install and configure a silent ringtone with these instructions.

5. Another calling only solution are services such as TrapCall, which has plans starting at $4.95 per month. No iPhone app installation is required, and once you're signed up TrapCall will unmask blocked caller IDs and blacklist unwanted callers. More expensive plans can be purchased that offer more in-depth functions.
