Hey Stella,
New to the iphone world?

Just go into the phone app. Touch either Recent or Contacts. If recent press the i on the RHS scroll to the bottom and touch block and follow prompt. From Contacts, touch a name, scroll to bottom ect ect.

Cheers,
Dave

My partner inadvertently blocked her own daughter recently. Took us ages to work out why her messages weren't getting through! Chuckle!

Re:Screening or allowing phone numbers

I entered my phone number into the allowed number and it said invalid. Can you explain why?

Hi koolnumber

Are you trying to "allow" the number of the device that you're using at the moment. 
If so that's the problem  - as it's designed for allowing other numbers to call you - rather than allowing you to call yourself.
