Full Answer

To block calls on a Verizon home phone, Call Block subscribers must first create a call block list. To set up the Call Block feature with the list of blocked calls, the user dials *60, or 1160 on a rotary or pulse-dial phone. In some areas, users must then press 3. Voice-recorded instructions then prompt users to enter the list of phone numbers they wish to block.

To block calls and messages on a Verizon cellphone, users can go to My Verizon at the Verizon Wireless home page and select My Account and Manage Verizon Family Safeguards & Controls. Users then click Add Call & Message Blocking Feature, after which they can add or remove a phone number from the block list. To add a phone number, users click View Details & Edit and then enter the 10-digit phone numbers they wish to block. To remove a number, a user must select a phone number from the list, push Delete on the computer's keyboard, click Submit and then click OK.
