Totally agree that the 10 number limit is ludicrous in the 21st Century.  You can limit thousands of email addresses reaching your inbox with most email services.  Email addresses can be very long with a mix of letters and numbers as well.  So, why then does Verizon have a problem with generally providing more than ten numbers that are made of of (generally) ten digits.

 

Furthermore, the voice spammers are now calling my home number somehow using (000) 000-0000.  When I enter this number as part of the "Incoming Call Block" list, I get a pop-up window that says, "Please enter a valid number".

 

FIX ALL THIS !!!!!!


It's not just the 10 number limit, but it is also the limit that you cannot simulatenously turn on blocking while email notification is enabled.  This is stupid!

A better idea then just blocking by number... how about being able to black all calls that come in with a particular caller ID. Lately all these "Marketing" calls are coming in. Why can't I just block all thoses?

Customers have been requesting changes to the 10 limit block for a long time now. Verizon for some reason seems to be ignoring this issue.

This 10-number block limit is rather stupid.

 

Is there an official feature request page, or place that we can complain?

Wow Verizon!

 

Look how old this thread is.  Your customers have made you aware of a hugely annoying problem, which is what brought me here, and you choose to ignore them.  This is what is wrong with huge bureaucratic companies.  The 10 call block limit makes zero sense. 

 

Are you people too busy building a new spy room up there in San Francisco for the NSA to peep on us to actually serve your clients instead?  Holy freaking cow 10 number block limit????????????  FIX IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

The ability to block a measley 10 numbers is actually an insult to a paying customer in this era of "technology". There has to be a monetary reason Verizon continues to ignore this issue and it's not how much it would cost Verizon to add technology to increase the limit above and beyond 10......Give me 80 and think of all the telemarketers I could put out of business. Verizon should fix this issue. I'll be surprised if they do.

There used to be a forum (Verizon Idea Exchange) for suggesting changes, but there' an announcement that it's been closed with something about they're "reworking the format" blah, blah...
