Mickey D bless you for a real answer.  Online Verizon support could only offer to sell me an unlisted number.  Verizons support pages must have been designed by the guys who designed Obamacare.

 

This link works!!  https://www36.verizon.com/FiOSVoice/members/CallFeatures.aspx

We have phony IRS calls coming in more than once a day.  It's annoying and against the law!  We need to block this number as soon as possible.

I have digital Verizon phone service.  I can go online to block calls, and I did set it up online.  I set up a specific numbern(305-000-0000), as they are calling 5 times a day (political robo calls and I'm in a swing state) and then I got a call from that same number--no blocking.  I also set up "block all anonymous calls", but that number came through. 

 

When I tried *60, the recording says that I do not have that service.  Why do I have the service online but not on the phone line?  And why isn't this working?

I found there is an option to do it using the "MY FiOS" app on my phone.

In the CALLS section you can tap on it to go to all theunbers that have called you.

Then tap on the number that you want to block (or unblock) and there is a button for BLOCK CALLER.

 

Now to see if it really works!

I'm having the same problem. Multiple calls per day from the same 800 number. Except these are coming in as faxes, so they're using up my printer ink. I've already reported the 800 number to the FCC, as junk faxing is illegal. But in case that doesn't help, I need these calls blocked somehow.

I don't have FIOS, and I can't upgrade to it. It's not available in my area. I have Freedom Essentials land line with the highest speed DSL plan. I can't find any way to add any sort of blocking to my phone package. Verizon needs to get this sorted. This thread alone has been going on for years.

I've tried the *60 directions and I keep getting a recording that this is not a a good phone number. I tried the 1160 suggestion also and got the same recording.

sweetie40, hi, do you have "digital voice"? did you try the link in my previous post in this thread? it is the post right before yours.clicking the link should take you to your digital voice mgmt. page.,(you may be asked to sign in again, too).

then in left column click on  "calling features".....then in frame to right go down to "incoming call block".....follow onscreen instructions
