They'll definitely ask me about it. I'll just play it off like maybe it's a service issue or whatever. If they somehow do find out I've blocked them, I'll simply tell them they can find their way off the list by getting the company to pay a third of my cell phone bill every month. Surely they won't even consider that, so I'm good. I have a home phone with an answering machine. They have that number, too. So it's not as if they can't reach me at all.

Try the jailbreak forum, they might help out some.


P.S. Go with the sharp cheddar, I hear its good.
I just had to let you know that I got that hidden message on your last line. Very sneaky!

Why can't you tell them you're unavailable to change shift? You made plans, etc?

It's all just politics. I think I solved the problem with this move.

Keep me up to date and let me know if it works for you. Like I said, you don't have to be on top of sending your auto response, as long as they receive one from you. It could be blamed due to a delayed response. No different from a voicemail I receive 1 or 2 days later.

Remember, keep it authentic and create something as if it were sent from your carrier:

"Message Notification Unable 2/12/13 1430pm ref# spr:12jn345m"

Good Luck!

I was able to block the five numbers from the VZW website. So I think I'm all set. But if they somehow get through from a line other than the ones I banned your suggestion is Plan B. Thanks again. I had issues with my voicemail recently because Apple sent me a new replacement that I didn't call Verizon to register with them. Something about the IMEI number not being on file and being the culprit for my voicemail not working. I will go with an excuse like that. They'll buy that hook, line, and sinker.

The problem with this is that the text message will be coming from your phone number so they will know you send it.
If there's really an error or a message delivery fault you get an autoreply back within a second and that comes from a carriers error number other than the receivers cellphone number.
But some might still buy it though
