I use an APP called 'Should I Answer'. I think it may already be obsolete but it works great. If the person's number that is calling you is not in your calling list, it does not ring your phone. The only thing that caller can do is leave a voice mail. I also have a Text App called QKSMS. I think it is a partner APP to Should I answer. It too works great. No more texts from anyone I do not know.

Wish I could use those, but as I have to take calls from folks who want a password fixed, I just answer them all..... and if there is a funky, or non-existent number, I wait 5 seconds, say somethink funky,,, 'whadda ya want?' and if that don't stop the PC voice, I just hit ignore, and enter that number into my Blacklist


Never have the same number call me twice that way. :grin3:


and, with the huge amount of doctor's offices, having 10 extensions, I never know if my doctor is calling.... I can't not answer

I will look into those. The Google calls may or may not be directly from google itself. However they are representing google so they are from google no matter what they say. I also can't not answer my calls. Doesn't do any good to block the numbers as they never use the same number twice. They are even using local prefix numbers now.

As I said, the calls are not blocked, your phone just does not ring when numbers not in your call list attempt to call you.

The calls go to voice mail after a few rings. If the caller leaves a voice mail, you will get notification of it. Robo callers do not normally leave voice mails.


If you are a sales professional, it is not practical to have a call blocker.

I have never, ever, had a RoBo caller leave a Voice Mail.
I have and in Chinese. On my I phone if I don't recognize the number I can text a custom message. Mine is "Identify yourself and I'll call you back"

My daughter was in the hospital a year ago, no insurance, no job so how can you afford medical insurance?


the collection agencies and promoters were driving her insane, she only answered calls that brought up her Contact List....


A few days ago, I called Verizon and told them she was being harassed, and they gave her a new number that had been out of use for a "Long time".


Instant quiet.... only her friends know the new number, and our family of course.
