    Hello. I have tried calling someone but I get a strange alert tone and the message, "The person you are trying to reach is not accepting calls at this time. Please try your call again later".

    I was told this happened because the user has a high cell phone bill that has yet to be paid.

    When this occurs is all services on the phone stopped (calls and text messages) or just all calls? Would you still be able to use the text messaging feature? Would you be able to see incoming text messages but wouldn't be able to send them or would ALL text messages (incoming and outcoming) be stopped until the bill is paid?

    Correct. ALL services are put on hold until the bill is brought current.

    this could also be happening if the person has reported their phone lost or stolen....

    either way tho, all of the services are completely suspended.

    Will this also happen if the person you are calling has blocked you?

    It either means their bill isn't paid, their phone is suspended as lost/stolen or they have blocked your number. Try calling from another phone to see if they've blocked you.

    More than likely not when they block you to block a person you need police reports and documentation and a valid reason so if ure stalking someone than more than likely you are blocked but you would know cause the cops would be at your door

    Sorry But that is not true, ATT has a feature called Smart Limits, It can block certain numbers (up to 15) and it would tell them that same message.

    I know this thread hasn't been replied to in a while, but my ATT phone has a feature where I can add numbers to my "Blocked" list, where they won't be able to contact me, and I blocked my friend just to mess around with him, and he somehow left me a voicemail. How is this possible? I have unblocked him sense, but I would still like to know how this happened.

    That block you put on through your phone just blocks the number from activating the ringing on your phone, it does not block it through the ATT system.
