    What is it doing? I click the second icon up top. Calls and texts are blocked.

    Well I just blocked him on the verizon site. The block expires after 90 days though. Can I reblock the number after that expiration??

    as @radon222 stated in their message in the previous, yes you'll have to renew it every 90 days.

    I never used the default messaging app on my s7 and neither do I now with my Pixel. I use Textra (which I personally find to be better), and there is a blacklist option for text messages.
