Block outgoing international calling & texting

  • We offer the ability to block outgoing international calls or texts from your phone.
  • This block isn't available to add online, so to add it, just give us a call at 1-877-746-0909 or contact us by message or social.
  • If you're looking to block international roaming (usage while traveling outside the U.S.), check out Block international roaming instead.

Some things aren't blocked

  • This service doesn't block calls to Canada or the US Virgin Islands.
  • This service can't block outgoing international calls if you are roaming domestically on another carrier's network. Those charges are considered valid.

  • 3rd-party international calling apps that bill you separately are not blocked.
