    What does the person at the other end of a call hear when I Block incoming calls from them using stock samsung phone App? Do they get a chance to leave voice mail? Do they get a message saying they are blocked. I am a VZW subscriber if that matters. Thanks

    I am getting that the user is currently on the other line. I think its the same as if you deny a call when it comes in. Just test it yourself, quicker than posting and waiting for an answer :p block your home number or another mobile and call yourself :)

    My home number is my cell but thanks. I was hoping it just hung up on them. Anybody know if it is the same in VZW?

    Just tried blocking my home phone, then dialled my Note 3, from the landline I got just one quick dialing tone then a continuous tone, like the 'number is out of service' tone.
