To block a number from a Verizon landline, dial 1160 at the dial tone to activate Call Block and follow the prompts to set up the Call Block list. Rotary and pulse dial users should dial *60 at the tone to activate Call Block.
The Call Block feature allows customers to set up a list that prevents them from receiving calls from the numbers they add to their Call Block list. Callers whose numbers appear on the list reach a recording that advises them the number they are trying to reach is not accepting calls at this time. Call Block cannot block certain calls, such as those from outside the local area or from cellphones. Customers can temporarily deactivate the Call Block feature or edit their Call Block lists anytime.
