How do I stop telemarketer calls?

I see verizon offers a way to block 5 numbers for $3.99 a line per line.
Problem is a.) the telemarketers keep switching numbers so that won't work for very long b.) it's a lot of upkeep to keep updating that list

and C.) it's overpriced.

It does look like a great way for verizon to overcharge for a "solution" that should be included with their service.Anyone else figure out a better solution?

Getting calls from telemarketers is never a fun experience. Rest assured, you are able to block 5 numbers for free. It expires after 90 days but you can re-add them back if necessary. For a longer solution, we have Family Base for $4.99 (for the whole account): FamilyBase FAQs | Verizon Wireless

Since has the 5 number blocks cost $3.99 a line per line?

It was always free for 90 days for 5 numbers last I checked.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

It is a scam from Verizon. It is how they are selling their new product. I am filing complaints with the fcc over this. I have the same problem. Shame on Verizon!!!
