Lol, I too don't give them a number or I do the (555) 555-5555 bit, I learned a long time ago that giving your number out can cost you unnecessary sales harassment.jsntrenkler

Seriously? You CAN block numbers on VZW. You can do it via my Verizon. I've blocked several numbers on my hubby's account.AT&T 16GB iPhone 3GS> 32GB iPhone 4> anxiously waiting for iPhone 5!! *Apple FABfangirl* MacBook Pro... FINALLY got my iPad 2!!! *Follow me on Twitter: @mrsFAB*

Do most of you turn off "show my caller ID?" I still show my number because 98% of my iPhone use is data-oriented and not voice calls. 99.9% of my calls are with friends, and it allows them to see it's me instead of "unknown" since I never answer calls from numbers I don't recognize, and I certainly never answer "unknown," thus I do not expect friends to unknown. I don't even have voice mail set up. (hate it).
Even so, I still receive 3 or 5 calls a week from 2 or 3 strange numbers: I want to block them as they come. :->

New verizon number blocking!
I didnt read this whole post so not sure if anyone said this but VERIZON HAS A NEW OPTION TO BLOCK NUMBERS!!!!! You can block 5 numbers for free!!! When a blocked number texts you it will not go through EVER. It will just keep saying, "sending" on their end! When a blocked number tries to call you it says, "Thank you for calling verizon wireless. The number you are trying to reach has calling restrictions which have prevented the completion of you call! hahaha...enjoy! Thank you Verizon...FINALLY!

I don't know what Mr. One-Post OP is talking about, but you definitely can, up to five.
I went on there just now to check and make sure, and it's still there.
Unfortunately they expire after 90 days and all blocks will expire Jan 22, 2012. That blowsC H I R M E R

Haha, you know, I was actually very excited about this when I read some of the posts in this thread, but now I can't think of who I want to block; 90 days or not

AT&T has the same thing but it's $5 a month and you can block up to 10, parental controls I believe is the optionCleveland

And, I'm not trying to push my preference on others, so I've got no reason to go and join an android forum to talk about how awesome iPhone is. That's like going to a KKK meeting and trying to show people the latest queen latifah movie...

Same with Verizon except you can pay $5/month and extend your blocklist up to I think 20...maybe more...I didn't really retain that info because if I need to block more then 5 people I'd just change my number.
I know it sucks that it expires! Well' on the bright side blocking someone who is a pest and won't give up is just a click away!
Also..I have no need for this but you can really drive someone crazy because they cannot reach you at all and you can call and text them all you want.

blocking unwanted numbers
If your service is through Verizon go to verizonwireless and sign in. Go to my verizon and under my plans & services click on Manage Verizon Safegaurds, under Spam Controls and Service Blocks click on set up call and message blocks. You can block up to 5 numbers for 90 days. Good luck.

if you jailbreak your phone, then install iBlacklist through Cydia, the program is $12...but there are no restrictions on how many numbers you can block; no monthly fees; and many parental controls to keep unwanted phone calls, SMS and MMS messages.... will be worth the $12 come election time!.
