How to Block a Number on a Verizon Wireless Prepaid Phone

By Mandy Slake

Verizon Wireless allows you to block up to five numbers from calling your cellphone using a feature called Spam Controls. You can add the block through your My Verizon account on the Verizon Wireless website. The blocks expire after 90 days, but you can block the number again as many times as you want.

Step 1

Log in to your My Verizon account on the Verizon Wireless website.

Step 2

Click "My Services" and open "Verizon Safeguards."

Step 3

Click "Spam Controls" and enter the number that you want to block.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can add up to 20 numbers and block them indefinitely with the Usage Controls feature, but it is only available to postpaid accounts.
  • You cannot block other numbers on your account.
