There will always be that one person you can’t stand to face, have near in your space or simply cannot share the same oxygen with. There might be one, there might be two or more than ten, but there will surely be a name that you will call He Who Shall Not Be Named (or simply Voldemort).
There is also those anonymous people who probably get a kick from annoying people by calling at the forsaken hour of one am while you are in the middle of dreaming that you are tanning in the Carribean. And former lovers. And people who want to ask money from you.
Perhaps, there is nothing more irritating than the fact that they all have your number and pester you with unwanted calls. At these times, you just want to forget that you have still have to pay for your phone unit and just want to throw it at the hardest surface available. Preferably, at the toes of your sworn irritant. Your phone, aside from being a useful device of communication, can also be an instant source of irritation when those numbers flash in your screen.
If you can’t beat them, block them. Here are some easy ways in blocking phone numbers. For AT&T and Verizon residential, dial 60 and wait for a recording that will give you the procedures on how to add a number on your block list. There is also an instruction on how to disable call blocking on your phone. After that, hang up. AT&T Wireless requires you to sign up for a feature called Smart Limits for Wireless. You can either add this via your AT&T online account or by calling 1-800-331-0500 or visiting their nearest retail store. If you already have Smart Limits for Wireless service, go to its page and select the Blocked Numbers tab, which you can find under Control. Go to Add New phone numbers and type the number you want to block; you can have up to thirty numbers in your list. Click submit and voila, this number cannot call or send you text messages.
For Verizon Wireless, you have to sign in to your account using your phone number and password. Under Plans and services, you will see My Verizon>Manage Verizon Safeguards. Look for View Details & Edit, click Add Blocked Contacts and then Add Block. Type the name, phone number and type of number of the person you want to block. After that, click add. You can have up to 20 numbers saved.

Click “Block only the following phone numbers for inbound and outbound calls” and select the green check mark when you’re done. Click Save.
