AT&T and Verizon users can block unwanted phone calls by adjusting their settings online.

If you have been receiving unwanted phone calls to your cellphone, whether it be from telemarketers, someone harassing you or spam, you can block the numbers from calling your phone again. For telemarketers, you can add your number to the National Do Not Call Registry, which will automatically block any telemarketers from contacting you. If you are an AT&T or Verizon Wireless user, you can block phone numbers using additional services. Other cellphone carriers that include Sprint and T-Mobile do not have any options to block phone numbers as of October 2011.
