Is imessage turned off to prevent messages being sent via that method?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Also you can't block a number that is on your plan in case you are trying to block brother/ sister / ex that might be sharing a plan with you
I can certainly understand not wanting to receive messages and calls from certain people. Verizon Wireless does offer a free call & message block for upto 5 numbers per line. Once blocked the number will not be able to call or text message your line. Click here http://bit.ly/MqEgqB for additional information.
