Hello,

To block outgoing calls you would need to use call gate. I have included a link below that list the details of the feature.

Buyer BEWARE!!!   Verizon is clueless!  Call Block is no longer available on any of the new bundles Verizon offers!  I had this service and it worked great.   Then I switched to Verizon Digital Voice for savings, and even though a member of Verizon's elite team assured me that this functionality would still be there, it wasn't.  Worse yet, when I called to inquire about why it wasn't there, I was on the phone for hours trying to get through to anyone with a bit of clue, and was finally told be a different member of the (elite?) team that it just isn't available anymore, and they can't add it back. 

Nice going Verizon!    Time to look elsewhere...  Verizon is clueless...

I have a family member who, unknown to me, had made $82.00 of directory assistance calls, on my phone, while I wasn't home.  In just two weeks!  I think it is appalling that Verizon doesn't allow people to mitigate their circumstances, subjecting them to abuse by others.  The bill is in my name and I have to pay for it.  What does Verizon expect me to do?  Should I take the receivers with me EVEY time I leave?  How is that better?  If I can block an email, why not a digital phone call?

It sounds like call gate is not available in NY, any other idea?
