How to block a contact in WhatsApp?

delia25

How do I block someone who is a contact in WhatsApp? It is simple if they are not in my address book, there is a little “block” button, but the person I want to block is in my address book and I don’t want to remove them, just block them on WhatsApp. I’m using the iPhone version of the app, by the way.
