Most people probably prefer to do it on their phone for free.

Hi Renee!

 We don't offer the service, but the feature is included in iPhones and some Android phones.

I you don't have it included in your device, as Bob has suggested, there are a lot of free apps that you can download in order to block a number!

I wish I knew that before switching to Koodo, it would have been a deal breaker. Virgin Mobile did it.

Is there a specific reason you would prefer to do this for a fee rather than using your phone's built-in blacklist feature (if applicable) or a free app instead?

I don't understand why there is a fee, I have never paid for this anywhere else. The iphone feature does not block the voicemail so now that I have switched to Koodo all the blocked nusance calls go to my voicemail which is extremely frustrating.
