Call blocking? - AT&T Avail ZTE990


Call blocking? - AT&T Avail ZTE990

I simply want to block a few numbers from calling my phone.  I have an old ZTE990 AT&T go-phone that is off support, I believe.

ZTE says the phone has no built-in call blocking and they pointed me to a  AT&T web page.  That page said to enter *60 to turn on call blocking and to add phone numbers to block.  When I call *60 or *80 I get recording that call cannot be completed as dialed.  btw - the phone cannot download any apps of any kind - cannot even update software.  Is there any way for me to block unwanted phone numbers?  Calls are from area code 469 (Dallas) and my phone's area code is 214 (also Dallas).
