If someone uses a VPN, can they get around call blocking?

Miembro

I blocked someone who's constantly texting me (and I asked them to stop but they won't). When this person is at home, his wireless is through a VPN which seems to be able to get around the block. How do I counter this and stop them from texting my phone?

GemCollector,

 

No one likes harassing texts or calls. Help has arrived. You can block numbers for up to 90 days at no cost on My Verizon. http://vz.to/21LJcv6. You can also block them permanently if you have FamilyBase ($4.99 a month) on your account. http://vz.to/1RAZjEn

Call blocking is based completely around the phone number, not where it is coming from. VPN does nothing.

I have the number blocked, I deleted them from my contacts and all the

messages and they're still able to get texts through to my phone. I thought

the VPN might be allowing it to happen.

I have them blocked yet I'm still getting texts from the number. How can

that happen?

Perhaps they are employing a number-spoofing method to get around your blocking. This may have progressed past a technology problem and moved into a law enforcement problem, if you're being harassed. Stay safe out there!

Which phone model do you have? If you have an iPhone, could they be sending you iMessages?

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

Call the cops and report the person.

We want to make sure you are okay. The last resort to a situation like this would be to change your mobile number. This can be done for free on your My Verizon. Find more information by following this link, https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/change-mobile-number-faqs/.
