    blocked. he somehow, a few weeks ago, blocked me, but has since turned it off. but I CANNOT
    call him still! When I do, it rings one and a half times, then goes to his voicemail. im getting
    extremely pissed that I cannot even call my own husband. help me, please???

    Welcome to Android Central! Yikes, that problem sounds like it could become the premise of some bad comedy based on misunderstandings. Wireless providers often provide a way to block numbers as well (i.e., apart from a setting on the phone), so call your wireless provider or check your accounts on the web to see if either of your numbers are blocked in the system.

    Go to phone app, click menu, settings... check call rejection lists if you have this feature... on his phone that is.

    Good idea. Look at page 57 of the manual here:

    B.-Yeah, it's a little silly, and we have been the center of a few laughs. But it really is Frustrating! haha
    I did do what you said; called att, they have no clue what I'm talking about, AND, you have to pay extra on your plan to have them block numbers, which I would never do!

    wtom- I wish the solution were as easy as that. We have turned on then off, added and deleted, and done everything you could think of multiple times. ugh!

    Now what....

    Thank you though, B. Diddy, and wtom, for tryingtohelpmeout.

    Hi brefaywell. Try the following.

    1. Go to your phone dialer.
    2. Hit the menu button and choose "call settings".
    3. Check the call "rejection setting" and see if his number is listed.
    4. If you don't plan on rejecting calls, turn the setting off.

    Keep me posted.

    You're very welcome! If you're able to pop your SIM card into another phone and call your husband then, does his phone reject your call?

    What if you both tried different devices at same time?

    It's worth trying a cache partition wipe, which erases temporary system data from the system cache. Follow the instructions for "Wipe Cache Partition" here:

    Where is he when your trying to call him? I think you may want to god seen what he is up to. Must be a reason why he is rejecting your calls. When I get a call I don't want to answer I just swipe the call right to voice mail. Sounds fishy to me,, good luck.

    IT'S TRUE,, SIZE IS EVERYTHING!

    NOPE! What tha h*ll, man. This really is getting old. Every single time I need to get a hold of my husbsnd, I have to text to him, "Call me!"
    Ok, so when I DO try to call him, it rings one and a half times, then to his voicemail. We BOTH have blocking mode: OFF. We also each have nobody on our reject list. We both have tried the cache clear, to no avail.

    I don't think so. I have a co-worker who had that same thing happen. This happened when he had OG droids. It most likely is a carrier issue.

    Not sure if you're rooted? If so, flash a custom ROM and see if that works.

    If you're not rooted, do a factory reset. Make sure you back up your data before trying either.

    When I did a search for "verizon change number of rings before voicemail," I found a few threads where people said they were able to change the number of rings before going to voicemail by calling the service agent. Not sure if it's even possible to go down to 1.5 rings, but try calling your wireless provider and ask them specifically if they're able to adjust the number of rings before going to voicemail.
