By international do you mean Canada?

I know that international text CANNOT be blocked unless you block just a few numbers or block ALL messaging. Verizon can EASILY put a system in place to do this, but this is Verizon's (as well as other major carriers) illegal revenue stream so you will have to deal with it.

For int'l calling, typically calls to Canada (long distance) CANNOT be blocked - another illegal revenue stream for Verizon (like 411 directory calls), so the only option you have is to block individual numbers or just don't make calls to Canada.
