***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Blocked contact questions

If I block a contact will the other person on my account be notified that I blocked someone?

If someone on my account trys to text or call a blocked contact,  what will happen?

If the blocked contact tries to contact me via text or call what will they receive?

Thanks for the help.

The account owner will be notified when there are changes made to the account including blocking a number on the line. The other lines on the account can send and receive calls and text messages from the number you blocked on your line. When the blocked number attempts to call your line they will hear a message indicating there are restrictions on the number they are dialing and the call can't be completed. If the blocked number is a Verizon Wireless number they will also get an automated reply telling them the messages they sent your line can't be delivered. Your line can call or text the blocked number as usual.

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