You are blocking the number on the phone itself which is basically sending them to your voicemail without ringing the phone. I have seen this behavior with a notification for a number I was sending to voicemail on a Motorola phone so I suspect it is a standard Android behavior. To stop the notification, you end up unblocking the number on your phone.

If you block the number through your MyVerizon account online, you will not receive a notification.

Great question, JoeVA63. I know getting a notification that a call was blocked must be a nuisance. I'm glad that you were able to block unwanted callers from reaching you. However, the capability to disable notifications for those blocked numbers is not something built into the device. I have heard that there are some third party applications that may be able to accomplish this, but because it's not necessarily something that we are behind, or are familiar with, we couldn't recommend any specifically.

A two second search on the Verizon Wireless website found this. Block Numbers | Verizon Wireless

Thanks!  I did come across that in my search but ignored it because i thought i was just the same as if i did it on my phone.  but i will give it a try and see if it works any differently.  i'm just hoping i dont need to be reminded all the time on my phone i blocked a call.  to me it seems if you block a call, you never want to hear from the party again!
