Update 10/18: Verizon announced in a press release today that the rollout of its category filters for spam and robocalls is available to all after starting in August. Plus new filters like “Telemarketer,” “Nonprofit,” “Political,” and “Survey” have joined “Healthcare,” and “Public Service” for Call Filter Plus subscribers.

“Call Filter also delivers a unique tool, only from Verizon, that tackles “neighborhood spoofing.” That means that if you receive multiple calls from phone numbers that appear to be local, or from a neighbor, you can activate the Neighborhood Filter. With Call Filter, you can block up to five area codes and prefixes at no cost, and with Call Filter Plus you can block up to ten.”
