    2. Select "Manage Verizon Family Safeguards & Controls" (under My Plans & Services)
    3. Scroll down to "Block and Unblock Services" and click "Add now"
    4. Select the line you wish to block services for

    Oh wow, thanks so much for this! I didn't know I could block the picture and video MMS messages. Sometimes I really don't want to accept those.

    I know that you can block all text messages at once from all senders, but can you just block one, single sender? I've been told no before, but just wanted to see if this had been changed yet.

    I've tried to block a single user before, but for some reason, they are able to get past the block. Calls, texts, everything, I just can't seem to get the block to stick.
