Ok, so ATT is screwing you over worse than Verizon is screwing me over. Point taken. Unfortunetly, there is no phone number TO block, or this wouldn't be an issue. There is probably a round about way to do this in conjunction with Google voice, acting as a middle man.

I don't know about anyone else, but this really just stinks. This is a static setting that should be provided as part of ANY level service purchased from Verizon. I am not talking about blocking specific numbers, oddly, they allow a few of those for free. I am talking about blocking unavailable calls. If it pisses you off like it does me that Verizon is trying to charge $5 a month extra just to not allow anonymous calls, its actually cheaper for the same service at trapcall.com, if you pay for a year or more of service. On my comcast phone, you just hit *77.  End of story.

So, I too have this going on. I called Verizon assuming they had some static setting they could toggle to block ANY calls that do not display a phone number. Of course, they do. Its called "usage controls" and they charge $5 a month ON TOP of the insane amount they already charge for their service. This pisses me off so much I can hardly contain myself. The question I have is this. If one paid the extra $5 a month, toggled the setting. Then cancelled the "usage control" add on, would the setting remain toggled? At $5 a month, I might as well give the month to a smaller startup, and thats what I told the person. The fact that Verizon wireless is attempting to nickel and dime their customers just goes to show what kind of company they are. If it werent for the slightly better coverage area, and the fact my company official cell company is verizon, I would have stayed with T-Mobile. Shame on you Verizon.
