How can I block outgoing calls?

I need to block a number on my son's phone so he cannot dial out to it. How can this be accomplished?

You can do it online on the Verizon Wireless website.

From the menu bar at the top, navigate to:

My Verizon > My Plan & Services > Blocks

Then select your son's phone, select Blocked Numbers, and add the number to block.

This block only lasts 90 days. You can add a permanent block through verizon's FamilyBase feature.

I'm not sure that will work. The number blocks prevents the selected numbers from calling your phone number.

The Family Base feature might have that option.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

You're correct Ann154. Sorry, I must have misread. Yes, it would have to be FamilyBase to block outgoing.

Davidia53, ensuring you have all the proper controls for your child's phone is a must. Help is here. Ann154, you are correct. Family Base is the method to not only block numbers but also prevent the user of that particular phone to have the ability to call someone as well. Davidia53, please click the link provided for all information you need on this great feature. http://spr.ly/65868m4L2
