I tried to block a number that solicits me repeatedly. When I entered the number in the box on MyVerizon, I got the message "Unable to block XXX-XXX-XXXX on [my number and device]. I do not understand why the system will not let me block this number.
Solved! Go to Correct Answer
Is it an 800 or other toll free number? I don't believe you can block those.
It may also be a "spoofed" number, not a legitimate phone number, and therefore seen as invalid so no block occurs.
Thanks for getting back to me.
It is not an 800 number, it has a local area code from my city. It is not a spoofed number, it is the university I attended calling for donations. I have asked them not to call me, but the calls continue, and my friends from college say the same thing happens to them.
I also dislike receiving unwanted calls and want to make sure we help you get this number blocked @njahren . I am going to send you a Direct Message for better assistance.
