Why do blocked calls go to voicemail?


If i have blocked a number, it means i don't want any calls or txts from them. Pretty much every single number i have blocked is just a spammer. I dont need them going to voicemail. I'd prefer if i could send them all to the deepest pits, but failing that, sending them nowhere would be a 2nd choice.

Even more so since verizon charges extra for more voicemail space - which seems a bit silly considering voicemails take up an insignificant amount of storage space.

Anyhow, is there any way to truly completely block a number? I don't want to get calls, txts or voicemails from them. I don't even want to see a popup or anything on my phone telling me a call was blocked.
