Log into your My Verizon account and click on the box to block calls and texts. Add the number and hit SAVE. You will need to do this for each phone line.

This will block the number for 90 days.  However, keep in mind if they decide to add *67 in front of your number to block their number from being seen, the call will make it through. But if you have smartphones, you can get apps to block those types of calls.

They can also text from the VZW website and not enter their number and then text you.

Some phones allow the user to block individual numbers also. You may want to check into that.

If the same number needs to be blocked on all lines on the account, you don't have to enter the info. for each line ... there is an option to check "apply these settings to all eligible lines".
