Whether you want to block texts from a particular person, or simply want to be able to mute a conversation, you can do it with the help of your iPhone. Here are some helpful tips to help you get started.
Using the Messages app on iOS, you can mute conversations or group chats. This feature is useful in several situations. For instance, it allows you to get rid of automated services, such as notifications and banner alerts. You can also use this feature to prevent yourself from being distracted by conversations.
To mute someone, simply open their conversation and swipe to the left. This will reveal a bell icon that will help you mute them. You can also mute a group by tapping their group thread. This will silence all notifications in the group chat. You can also leave a group without leaving the chat. However, you should remember that leaving the group will not delete the conversation on your device.
To unmute a group, you will need to open the group text and tap the group’s thread. You will then see a bell icon and a slash in the “Info” section. Alternatively, you can click the “More” drop-down in the “Info” section and then select “Unmute” from the menu.
Add legitimate senders to your address book
Adding legitimate senders to your address book will not only help you get a better look at the mail you’re about to receive, but it can also help you stop the spam. A spammer might be able to fool you with a simple text message, but legitimate companies will not ask you to provide personal or financial information.
In addition to adding legitimate senders to your address book, you may want to block certain numbers from sending you messages. The iPhone has a built-in feature that will do the trick. To use it, open up the Settings app, scroll down to Phone, and tap on Block this Caller. This function will keep persistent senders at bay, and you will receive fewer text messages from them in the process.
You can also report junk messages, such as spam, through the app. For example, if you receive a phishing message, you can file a complaint with the FCC. This will help the agency track down the spammer. You can also report a spammer by contacting the company directly. There are several methods for doing so, and you may have to do a little legwork to figure out which method will work best for you.
Report junk messages
Whether you’re an iPad user, an iPhone user, or both, you have the option to report junk messages. These are spam text messages that are aimed at your phone. Reporting them will remove them from your Messages app.
Apple has added a new feature to the Messages app that lets you report junk messages. Reporting these messages will remove them from your device and alert Apple. This feature is only available to iPhone users in the United States.
Reporting a junk message is actually quite simple. It’s a matter of navigating to the message, clicking the arrow icon, and then tapping the Report Junk option. Some iPhone users may not see this option and may have to long press on the message to get it.
There are a few other things to consider when reporting junk messages on your iPhone. For instance, you may want to avoid reporting important messages. This is especially true for text messages. If you’re reporting a message, be sure to make it clear if the message is important. Otherwise, you may accidentally block a reported spam message.
The “Report Junk” function is only available to iPhone users in the United states. However, there are other methods to report junk messages, including text forwarding and using the Report Junk feature in the Messages app.
Unblock blocked contacts
Whether you have blocked a friend or a family member, you can easily unblock their phone number from your contacts list. Unblocking a contact is simple, and it works with virtually any iPhone. However, there may be slight differences between iPhone models and operating system versions. So check with your phone’s manufacturer for further details.
You will need to first unlock your phone. From your home screen, click the Phone app. You will then be able to find a list of your recent phone numbers. When you scroll down the list, you will see the contact you want to unblock.
After you have found the contact, you will need to tap the “i” button that is located next to the contact. This will open a hidden menu. There are a number of options, including Unblock, Blocked, or Edit. You can then tap on Edit to delete or edit the contact. You can also add a new contact.
If you’re still having trouble, you may need to restart your phone. This is called power cycling and will fix the blocked number glitch. If you’re not sure how to restart your phone, check with your device’s manufacturer for more information.
You can also view a list of blocked contacts in the Mail app. This is located in the Threading section of the Settings app. If you haven’t received a reply to a question you’ve sent, you can ask a new one.
