Blocking Restricted Calls

why is restricted call blocking not included for free with the plans? Why does Verizon force you to add FamilyBase for this feature? It is the only feature I would use out of the entire package

There are some free third party apps that will do this - Google Voicemail, & You Mail are two that I have used.

ukwildcatfan1988,

We can understand that receiving restricted calls can be bothersome. At this time, we do offer the FamilyBase feature as a solution. I’m sorry that you’re hesitant to use it. SuzyQ has provided some useful information regarding third party apps.

I am hesitant to use is as I have no need for the other features as I do not have any other lines or children that I need to limit on what they can do with their phones. It is just me. I just thought I would suggest that maybe it could be added as a feature in the 5 numbers you can block for free. Thanks
