Any way to block incoming calls?

    Has anyone found any good call blockers to prevent unknown callers from junking up your voicemail? I've heard about GBlock and aFirewall but they're not complete solutions... looking for something that shuts down an unwanted caller with NO voicemail option.

    Even better - an app where you put in the numbers you wish to accept and have anyone else who calls in get rejected instead of having to enter numbers you want to have blocked.

    you need a picker upper and hanger upper... whatever that is.

    edit* call blocker elite has an option to hang up or send to voicemail

    Do you have Google Voice? You can block callers from there. I throw all of mine into a "Don't Answer" contact and require call presentation - pretty much eliminated the issue.

    might be worth it to register your cell phone number on the national no call list at www.donotcall.gov

    Google Voice, if you can get it, would be a great choice for this.

    you can do it from the verizon website and no you dont gotta pay.

    1. Log into your account go my verizon
    2. Then click on the spam icon
    3. Then it will say something about blocking numbers do that and then just enter the number.
    4. Then it will tell you the ban ends at a certain date, when that date ends just redo the same process & your golden

    You can block up to 5 numbers any more then they you gotta pay a certain amount a month. The nice thing is you can call and text the people you block but they can't do the same lol.

    Hope this helps

    I can't remember if it was available in 1.5 but in 2.1 I do know that at the bottom of a contacts info there is an option to send them directly to voicemail. If that is any help...

    Great info here! I guess my ultimate blocker would only allow the numbers I have in my contact list through, thus eliminating me having to create and update a list of numbers I want to block, since most solicitors will use different numbers when they're junk calling. I'll certainly check out those options though! :D

    That is the way to go; we've done it with all of our numbers at home and work. It takes weeks on end for it to "take effect," but we all noticed one day that junk calls gradually stopped coming in, then stopped entirely.

    I was amazed.

    If you subscribe to VZW's parental controls, you can specify a list of numbers then only those can get through.

    I completely missed that, thanks! Helpful when they call your Verizon number rather than your Google number :)
