    Yeah, that question is asked a lot here. The good news is since you know who is calling you, file a police report, or at least make a threat that you did. The bad news is, most carriers won't block phone numbers. Someone here said Verizon will, for a fee. Which is Verizon's M.O. (Want Help? Pay Up!)

    Since this is an ex girlfriend, I would go the threat route first; that is if that would work. Tell some people that know her that you have filed a police report and that they have placed a "Monitor Tag Report" on your telephone line. If that doesn't work, then actually file the police report. Then she will have no other choice but to stop. By filing the police report, they can contact her Wireless/Home carrier and inform them of this complaint.

    Or you can call Verizon and pay the $4.99 per month for the rest of your life. Which I honestly don't even know if Verizon offers that service.

    It's stupid, but this is how this garbage has to play out. I hope this helps out.

    EDIT: Oh, and make backup copies of any threats of harassment. You would need this if it went to court. Sprint also used to offer this feature where you could block phone numbers from sending you text messages. I don't know if Verizon has it, but it would be somewhere under the account settings through the web site.

    I know in Canada you can get your provider to block text msgs, not sure about voice calls.

    In the USA carriers can do this as well, but some of them can only block ALL text messages. Years ago when I had T-Mobile, I kept getting spammed for some night club in Miami Beach, and T-Mo could only block every text messages from coming in. Even though the spam was coming from 2 different numbers. So I had the choice of getting spammed 10 times a day, or not being able to receive any text messages from anyone, ever again. So I just blocked them all for a while.

    It's sad how we pay so much money to these companies who spend billions building these networks, and they act like it's their first day on the job! "Can you please block this 1 number from calling me?" "Ahhh, our network doesn't have the ability to do that." Bull ****!! You built it and you never thought to add that simple feature? It seems like every week I find out there is yet another thing my carrier can't do, because they didn't build that feature into the network. Freakin' stupid!

    Oh, I couldn't see any icons or anything. I just saw some numbers, so I didn't know what you were asking me.

    What I need is a simple mobile solution that'll help me to keep my communication expenses down. Looks like I've found not a bad option offered by CallinEurope.com - they sell sim cards and cell phones that will work in Europe. Does anyone have any experience with them? Any information or feedback will be much appreciated ;)

    Google for "Vertical service codes". I think there is a * code to block numbers. It'll cost you I believe.

    that is one of the good things i liked about the Motorola E815 (believe other motorola phones did it too) you can go into the settings and have it set up to accept all incoming calls, only ones in your contact list, and some other 1 i cant remember.

    If set for just contacts, it rings once on their end and goes straight to voicemail. You dont hear or see the phone rings, but will only get the notification if they leave a voicemail. Forget if it would do that for text messages but I dont think it would

    I wish other phones had this feature.

    Maybe try this from verizon (if you use verizon)

    How do I block unwanted text messages? To block unwanted text messages:


    Log-in to Text Messaging with your registered Verizon Wireless number.
    Once logged in, select Preferences, then choose Text Blocking from the menu on the left.
    Select the type of messages you want to block or enter the specific addresses you want to block, then click Save.

    Yes, you can use Call & Message blocking under the Verizon Safeguards program. Log in to your MyVerizon account and then click on MyServices. On the left hand side you should see a column in red and at the bottom it says Safeguards. Click on that and you'll find an area to enter in the specific number you want to block.

    It should look like the image.

    The block is good for 90days.
