    Regarding "call reject", there is an Auto reject list under Phone | Call Settings | Call restrictions. Does that not do what you are seeking?

    If you log into your Verizon account, you can block up to 5 phone numbers on each line for free. The block will stay on for 90 days, but you can then reset the block any number of times. They also have a service with much more control, but it costs $4.99 per month per line. It allows you to block up to 20 numbers without a reset and also allows you to control all the phones on that contract with respect to max money spent on downloads, max data used per month and controlling what hours a phone can be used. These are mainly to keep children from running up data and download costs and being on the phone during study hours or whatever. I just used the free call block on my home phone connect to block a fax that called me every 40 minutes.

    Well if you're going to stick with Verizon then you better get used to your phones being modded by them. They do it with every phone they get.
