    Open Contacts app>>>click on contact>>>click menu hard button>>>options>>>check Incoming calls

    that will send any phone calls from that number directly to voice mail

    and you can go to your Verizon account page, and block, I think its 6, phone numbers. Did that with my mom-in-law (at the request of my wife LOL). I think it stays blocked for 6 months, and then you have to reblock it.

    There are also a number of call blocker apps out there. Just do a search in the market for call blocker. Another app that I just downloaded is called Touchpal dialer. I downloaded it for the dialer part of it, but it looks like it has a call blocker built into it. In the menu you can add phone numbers to a black or white list to block them from calling you. You can set it to just hang up on them or to just make the ringer silent.

    I set up a "Junk" contact and save all telemarketer calls to that. I have it set that all calls to that number go directly to voice mail. Works like a charm.
