Knowing Verizon, they probably do.

I had done this. But it only blocks the phone call. Not the text.

I'm assuming the same as one of the other guys here. I bet if I called Verizon they offer it as a fee. Which is a load of BS.

And yes, it is an S5.

it may be similar on Verizon if it's not in the top level menu.

Alternatively your friend could go to the police and file a formal complaint regarding harassment if you cannot find a block button.

Default Call/Message block setting enabled?

Hey guys, you can try this if you want:

You basically just need to add this to your CSC settings and it will enable a dedicated call/message blocking options in your settings.
This was posted for the Note 1 at the time but I tried it on my Note 3 and it works perfectly fine. I'm thinking it will work perfectly fine for your S5's.
Here's the original thread with full instructions how-to! All credit goes to Majdinj :
