    I'm trying to block an organization that won't stop calling me, but they always leave voicemails. This results in their calls being the "voicemail" tab of my call history (instead of the "history" tab. When I tap and hold the voicemail, I only get the options to delete it or add the organization to my speed dial. I don't see any way to add numbers to the "blacklist" manually. Thoughts?

    All else fails, you may be able to ask your carrier to block them on their end. (IIRC, some carriers have those tools available)

    If I understand you correctly, you want to add the phone number of the company manually? Just dial the number that your voice mail says they're calling from than you hold down that number and in the history tab press add to blocked number list.That's how I blocked my insurance company number!

    What blocked number list? I tried your suggestion and didn't see that option.

    Hey, here is a picture of what I mean. So what you would do is dial the number, than hold down the number and that list of options pops up. Let me know if it helps!

    I had to enable call block under settings. I don't know if that has anything to do with this issue.

    You did not mention what device you have. The call + SMS filter is exclusive to Lumias, so you won't have it if your Windows Phone is from HTC, Samsung or some other OEM.
