I want to block unknown callers from even ringing my phone. YouMail lets it ring through. I just got woken up by an unknown caller robodialing, and I'm very unhappy about it. How bout it, Verizon? How can I block unknown callers? Your previous answers were not useful.
mikkibarry.esq, I understand you concern with wanting to be able to block unwanted calls. I have had this trouble myself. What helped was a feature called Family Base. It allows you to block up to 20 unwanted callers even those calling from a blocked number. To learn more visit http://vz.to/1Ivx05I

But why I need to pay for additional services in order to do that *77 used to do.? That doesn't make sense. My phone blocks numbers without need for additional services that I pay for. All I want to do it block unknown callers, blocked callers, etc., which used to happen when you dial *77. $5.00 extra per month? Why?
Try this: Use You Mail, and their ditchmail service that sends them straight to a message that says to unblock or make their number available, and then hangs up.
You can also set up a contact for unavailable or unknown caller, and set the ringtone to silent so it won't "ring" and will dump to voicemail.
