    I received a call on my phone and it was MY phone number. Can these idiots really do that? If I block that call will my phone number be blocked?

    The spammers can easily set their robocalling system to have their Caller-ID information match the number they are calling for every call.

    As for blocking your own number for incoming calls, I don't see any logical reason for your carrier or the phone's software from applying call blocking to your own number. I have no way of testing or confirming that for sure.
