ANSWER #18 of 19

IuiYou know some other person my age would probably report that as just down right rude,honey! Regarding your question, that means the person you were calling set their phone to specifically block YOUR PHONE NUMBER. See,....the number you were trying to reach (whoever you called)-that person went to "settings" on their phone, apparently, and set it up to where your number is BLOCKED. I red in one of your comments that it says "this message cannot be sent". Again, it looks like whoever's number you sent that message to, has done the same thing on your number for their messages. I would pay this person a visit and tell them if they didn't want u to call or text them, why didn't they just TELL YOU!! Would have saved them some money and it would have saved you a lot of misery. Dont call them anymore and dont text them,okay? They are mean. I apologize for saying your user name was scary, but to me it was. I mean, I don't know about u, but I always was taught that Satan is the same thing as the Devil. And I was always taught that the Devil was an evil "person". And ALOT of people were also generally taught that. I hate to see u
into any of that, whatever it means. So block their calls and messages,....I would, just to say,..how does it feel?

ANSWER #19 of 19

Oh,...I forgot to mention, in regards to your little message to me,....I am married and have been to my husband for 17 years! I'll give him the message, you know,.....I'm to do what u told me to do, if i can get someone who is willing to let me,....He will be pleased, as always!! :) Cathey Snell
