Is there any way I could block international calls?

Block international calls from being made and/or receiving them?

edit:: i have already called twice and asked them to block them & they told me they did buut they can still be made and received.

edit #2:: i called customer service for the 3rd time and they finally blocked them from being made.

You can probably block them from being made by calling customer service — AFAIK AT&T does not support Call Barring GSM feature. Incoming international calls are not any different than any incoming calls, so there's no need to block them.

You can block international calls that require a country code.  Any country that just requires an area code (example: canada) you can't block.  Customer care can handle that 1-800-331-0500

suggestion, if you do not want to be charged for international calls, DON'T MAKE THEM.  customer support can block certain numbers. be an adult just because you can do something doesn't mean you have to.
