I have a couple of hundred numbers blocked: Telemarketers...
But how do you then search for a number you need to unblock?

In the settings app, under phone. It is just a list though, no search function.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Scroll until you find the one you want to remove, I guess? It is a bad interface for sure. I don't have the problem because of local legislation on telemarketers calling cell phones.

I get spam numbers, but 1000!

kevin, have you added your cell # to https://donotcall.gov/ ?

It might be a symbolic gesture but it could cut back on that. Also, do you have your cell anyplace public? (website, phone book, facebook?)

Is the number you want to block in your contacts? Try adding it there and see what happens.
