I want to block a caller who is also another koodo customer. I have this person programmed in my iphone se but the do not disturb function does not work, the harassing texts keeping coming through. Is there a way to block an unknown name/number? All the other answers I see are outdated. Thanks.

I think it's an iPhone SE

No, there is no way to block specific unknown numbers.
You can block texts or iMessages, as they are identifiable. You do it through the Messages app itself, by blocking the user. You can choose to block a caller at the bottom of the contact page for that user.

I tried blocking through the iMessage app and it won't work. The texts keep coming through.

I guess will I have to change to a service provider that can block unknown name/number if Koodo can't do it?

If you find anyone that can do it, please let us know. I'm really curious because you're not the first one asking.

I remember being able to block with Rogers. I might have to switch back.
