I'm getting phone service via FiOS, but I don't see any control panel that allows me to do call blocking, etc...
Are you saying that's a separate "coming soon" feature set for people who get phone service over FiOS?
It will be packaged and sold as a new service altogether, and that control panel will only be with FiOS Digital Voice. It's currently available in MD and will be making it's way around through the summer and fall. It works a lot like VoIP but you won't need to add any new equipment or anything. I know I'm being pretty vague about some of the information but it's a new product and I don't have any links to direct you to. I will have to contact the powers that be if you (the people) are looking for more information.
Have you signed up for the National Do Not Call registry? https://www.donotcall.gov/
It does not apply to businesses where you already have accounts (ex: Verizon), but I have found it to be quite effective in reducing general telemarketing calls. Your registration expires after 3 years, so you will need to re-register every 3 years, but that is a small price to pay to no longer have the phone ringing all evening!
Beyond that, I am brand new to Verizon's digital phone service and am on this forum looking for information about a phone service user guide, if there is one ...
