In the past 2 weeks, I've started getting a ton of international calls. I block a new one every day but more come in. It looks like Verizon has removed the call barring feature fron the Galaxy S8 which has a selection to block all international calls. Why? Is there a way around this or do I have to finally drop Verizon after 30+ years?
Oh my goodness, sorry to hear about the issues with blocking unwanted international calls. We would never want you to leave the Verizon family, especially after more than 30 wonderful years. I know it can very unwelcome to receive such calls and I'm happy to shed some light on your options. Regarding a feature being removed from your phone, the manufacturer of your phone ultimately determines this. However, please check out this handy resource for all your call blocking options: http://spr.ly/6602EwaZr Please note that while this article references that Call Filter (which can help block robocalls) is $2.99, this is now only for the premium version. We offer Call Filter basic service (with robocalling blocking capabilities) for free and you can read more about that here: http://spr.ly/6603EwaZT Does this help? RyanM_VZW
can you tell me more about this "International Block"? where are you when click this option? Is this a phone app? Is it the verizon web site? Is it an extra service I need to buy from verizon?
To block incoming international calls in the Call Filter app, click this link and look for "Block all incoming international calls" https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/how-to-use-call-filter/ This will have the steps to toggle the feature on or off.
