    You can use a 3rd party app called Antair Call Screener 2.0 for blocking specific numbers or callers with no caller ID. $49.99 but worth the headache if you ask me. Especially if you have ex-gf's + bill collectors etc.

    you can call verizon and ask them to flag your line for 'do not accept anonymous calls'. this would then force the caller to press *82 before dialing which unhides their phone #.

    Actually if you are a Verizon Wireless customer you can block up to 5 numbers for free by calling customer care.

    Also you can block text messages by using vtext.com

    Default Youmail :)

    I just got youmail (youmail.com) and you can set it to "ditch" certain numbers or even play a message that says your phone number is no longer in service.

    It's sort of fantastic. Oh, and FREE.

    Youmail seems like a neat service, but with these 3rd party apps the phone never even rings. For me, when an unwanted call comes through and requires me to interact with it somehow, that's what makes my blood boil. And from what I've read, it seems like youmail requires you to let the phone ring until the phone is able to forward the unwanted call to your youmail number and deal with it from there. I would imagine that if you don't let it ring and try to hang it up, it will not be forwarded to youmail. Is that how it works?

    Default Txt blocking

    You can block txts from vtext.com. Once you sign in I think its options you click on. Its in the menu on the left hand side. Good luck!

    Hey do what I did! Set up exceptions in your profile for people/numbers you want to block. Then set the tone to mute. Works like a charm!

    Youmail is quite nice. Once you set it up there is not a lot of interacting. Even if you decide to ignore the call from your handset the call will be forwarded to the YouMail account. It does nto require much interaction once everything is set up. If you can elect not to allow certain callers to leave messages at all. Sure the phone will still ring, at least until it is ignored on your end or forwared by the system but it is cool how it works.

    nopz.. that site lets you block from specific email addresses it also lets you block from someone using your phones email address which is like number@vtext.com

    and also from webdomains you can block..

    but blocking phone numbers itself don't work..

    You may be able to block there phone if you know the carriers email extentions

    like with verizon @vtext.com

    so putting in like 5554523444@vtext.com might block there phone.

    I could be wrong someone correct me if I am.
    Guys/Gals when I post things I am posting to the best of my knowledge if I am for certain incorrect please correct me more knowledge to me helps. Thanks!

    Blocking through vtext has never worked for me, whether I entered by phone number or email address of the phone. Blocking through firewall on phone definitely works for me. I set it so that unless you are in my address book, nothing gets through. Just checked and it says that 41 SMS have been blocked and 1 MMS. Nice! I use Black and Whitelist to screen my calls and again with that, unless callers are in my address book, they get dumped straight to voicemail. Love it!

    or you could just go with visual voice mail. according to the verizon web site, vvm includes (among other things) the ability to create 10 different caller-id based greetings. i was not able to find out how to do this but here is the link that describes that feature:

    Calling Features: Visual Voice Mail

    here is another link that compares the features of basic vs vvm:

    if anyone figures out how to use the fax feature please let me know

    What is it with all you guys and crazy ex-gf's calling you?? I have always found "F OFF" to work just as well as blocking her number. LOL

    verizon has a chaperone service you can add to a line. It is supposed to be for kids but it allows blocking, times when you can receive texts and calls etc.

    For Verizon Customers: vtext.com is a good solution...kind of. You actually can't just add phone numbers that you don't want texting you, you have to put in nickname@vtext.com's or domain.com or whatever@wherever.com. I tried putting in phone numbers but no luck. It told me i had put invalid info in the text field or something along those lines anyway. But i did try a work-a-round and am hoping it works. I'll re-post if it does and let you guys know what exactly i did.

    How do you set up exceptions? I have seen this mentioned a few times, and have yet to figure it out (although I haven't tried very hard).

    For Verizon Customers: Ok, so i just figured it out. You actually CAN block individual numbers from Calling & Messaging you. To do so just follow these directions: Go to New Cell Phones, CPO Cell Phones, Prepaid Cell Phones, Cell Phone Plans - Verizon Wireless and click on the My Verizon tab. Log into your My Verizon account (if your not already) and make sure you're on the "Overview" tab of your account. From there click on the "My Services" tab. On the right hand side click "Verizon Safeguards" and then 2 options appear, click on "Spam Controls" and there you go. You can add up to 5 phone numbers you want to block from Calling & Messaging you.
