Call blocking

My husband gets an awful lot of sales calls and scam calls daily. Is there any way to cut down on them. I know I can block individual numbers, but I’ve looked on Verizon’s web site for a way to block all the unwanted or international calls, don’t really see anything. He’s had a few strokes, and actually gave out too much info to someone that said they were from social security, despite me warning him. Thank you

My father did a similar thing after surgery too, and I know it's important to cut down on these calls.


Verizon Wireless has the Call Filter app that you can set up on your smartphone. You'll see that the free version called Call Filter as opposed to Call Filter Plus includes
Spam Detection.

Use the "Get the app" link from the above link to set that up. Let us know your results.
