How do I block an incoming call

I have a family member that gets drunk and call me at all hours of the day and night many times of the day. I want to block his number from ringing through to my phone. I don't want the Do Not Call Registry, as that number only deals with blocking telemarketer and on line sales people.

Re: How do I block an incoming call

If you have FiOS digital voice... It's really easy. Just log into your account manager and select calling features from the menu on the left. Scroll down to 'Incoming Call Block,' and activate it. You can enter up to 10 numbers to block for free, and you can choose to block annonynous calls as well.

With 10 numbers in my list, I'm still getting five or six unwanted calls every day from robodialers. Verizon should raise the limit to 20 or 25.

 

I don't want to block every unidentified caller because --  believe it or not -- two companies that legitimately call me occasionally have their numbers blocked.

Re: How do I block an incoming call

I agree - I could use 50-75 number block spaces with the amount of traffic my telephone gets and I think it's rude that Verizon hides that function under so many layers on their website - I even have a separate family protection fee I pay monthly to up the number of call blocks but it's almost impossible to locate the right menu to use it and it forces me to log in again many multiple times!
