Block FaceTime and the camera is blocked. iPhone 8 with the latest iOS. This needs to be fixed already. It looks like users have been complaining about this for over 6 months and Verizon just keeps saying "that's unusual, please tell us your phone model and OS version," like this is not a widespread problem!
