Sales calls, 10 to 20 a day. I no longer answer anything from area codes outside mine unless it has a name. When I get duped I double finger 9 and pound back and forth until it hangs up, goodbye.

Fukking hate them all.

The only being more sorry than a telemarketer is the fuckhats buying the shit.

There are some apps that keep a live update of phone numbers of known spammers. I use a company called Metro PCS which is part of the T-Mobile network. Our phones come with an app built in that blocks probably 90-plus percent of all telemarketing calls. While I was reading this thread I got a phone call from the same number 10 times in a row but my phone doesn't even ring but I do get an alert that calls were blocked and it was the same number 10 times in a row but at least I didn't have to deal with it.

Noticed this too, very annoying. Read of a service called Hiya through a podcast episode I heard a while back, but have yet to use it and report personal experience. Be careful of the apps you install, games even. They might be the culprit in some of these robo calls

If I get a call from a number I do not know, it's instantly blocked on my iPhone. This has become beyond infuriating even after getting a NEW phone with a different number.

Do Not Call list is a pathetic joke.

Okay, I’m very happy because I haven’t received a spam call since Thursday. I turned on a beta test for international as well. Just nice it’s stopped for the time being!!!

I do love when I was getting the calls for John Smith, I’m like yeah how original dumb a$$. You say that to every number you spam...
