Can I block calls with Android 5.1.1 - Droid Turbo II

Member

Hi,

Is it possible to block calls from particular phone numbers on the Droid Turbo II running Android 5.1.1 ? I have been told by Verizon reps at my local store that Vz disabled this feature on my phone, so that it is no longer possible to block calls. Surely there must be a simple way to block calls .... 75% of calls to my cell are telemarketer or scam related... would be nice to simply select the number and put on a black list.

Is this possible? If not, is there a third party phone app that can perform this task on behalf of Verizon?

Thanks.

Hi,

While I appreciate your recommendation, I think I will continue to look for a viable solution to the issue. Paying Verizon for a stripped away function that the vanilla phone did without any issue isn't a solution... its robbery. Thanks though!

Actually Verizon. That feature to block calls hasn't been working for 5 days.
