    Note: On iPad, if you don't have the Open Navigation  Open Navigation button menu, select Chat at the top of the screen.

  2. Select the contact you want to block, then select Block.

  3. In the confirmation window, select Yes or Block.

To unblock a contact:

  1. In the Open Navigation Open Navigation button menu, select Contacts  Contacts button .

    Note: On iPad, if you don't have the Open Navigation  Open Navigation button menu, select Chat at the top of the screen.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of your contact list to find the blocked contacts.
