• Got a cell phone? Are you getting more spam calls?

    Even though “supposedly” the industry is trying to clamp down on spam calls, I get more, not less. Lately I’ve received calls where clearly the spam technology isn’t working and they end up being calls with “dead air”.

    If you have an iphone you can opt to REALLY block all unknown phone calls and ONLY those people in your iphone contact list with the following settings:

    Go to Settings > Focus > Do Not Disturb > move the toggle next to Do Not Disturb > to ON position and tap on the People tab. On the next screen, tap on Calls From option, located under “Also Allow” section. On the next screen, select All Contacts option. After this, your iPhone will only allow Calls from people who are listed on your Contacts List. All other Calls from unknown Callers or Callers with hidden Caller ID will be automatically silenced.

    If you don’t have someone on your contact list, when they call it will go to your voice mail.

    Androids may be a little different depending on the model, but you should be able to google and find instructions.

    Bottom line what are you doing to stop being annoyed with spam calls, spam texts and anything else related to spam?
