Here is something that does work. Paid Email. If it's free you are the product. I have been using startmail.com for a couple years. Best $40.00 a year I ever spent. Super secure and massive spam elimination.

My neighbor she has a whistle that she blows into just for all the spam callers. Her Husband does it too, they find so amusing.

The Car warranty calls and mortgage calls have since stopped.

Depending on the provider, iPhones have the ability to not ring when unknown or spam numbers call. Just goes to missed calls. Sometimes they leave a voice mail but TMobile has voice transcription feature for VMs that one can read so not too bad -glance and delete.

In the past spam calls were a source of entertainment when driving back from work - would waste a lot of their time acting dumb but not giving out real info. Don't have to drive to work anymore so that's the past now.

Your talking about this. The problem I had w/this feature is that my dentist, doctor and others would automatically go to voicemail w/o giving me a chance to choose.

If known, you add your dentist's number to your contacts and they won't go to missed. If you recently called their number then too it won't get silenced and will ring. If I am expecting someone to contact me who is not on my contact list then sometimes I will temporarily turn the feature off to let the calls through.

there are apps that filter them so your phone doesn’t ring and the number says spam call, never had an issue since

Delete and report for me.
