Ok, let's try this AGAIN! if you block a phone number, how is the blocked person still able to leave a voice mail? That doesn't make sense! What if the person is harrassing you?

Maybe the person called from a different number? The voice mail system does not identify the number that has called, does it? Go to your account online and pull up the account activity. I think it will show which number they called from.

I don't need to call the police. I just don't want to talk to the person anymore. It is a smartphone. I used the Reject Number Block feature. That's how I blocked him. He can't tap into my VM. How can I work it SO he doesn't leave a VM or have the option to? How can I make it say, " Iam NOT accpeting phone calls from this number? I Called ATT. Forget it! They were like, "YOu wanna hear something funny?" This website is a nightmare too! The members are MORE knowledgeable THAN the employees. Unbelieveable!

You have to pay 3.99 to BLOCK a phone number, EVEN if the PERSON is HARRASSING you! THAT IS insane!

I did not use Smart Voice to block the number. I used the reject call feature on the phone. I still don't get how a "blocked number" can be blocked, but the PERSON is STILL able to leave a VM. Can someone help me?

The reject call feature sends them immediately to voicemail.

Unfortunately, obsession is a real thing, and ignoring someone even for a long time doesn't always prevent them from leaving you several messages per day. Obsessions can last years or a lifetime. If the person is harmless and totally nonthreatening, but just annoying and obsessive, it's overkill to call the police. Some people are just childlike and there's no point in traumatizing them. But you still don't want to have to keep getting their voicemails, because it's inconvenient and annoying.
