    Some goods options from the wireless industry association on how to block robocalls and report text spams:

    Blocking Robocalls

    "While some recorded messages like flight delays or school closings are welcomed, others are not. Robocalls, or unsolicited prerecorded calls and SPAM text messages from businesses or organizations, aren’t only annoying, but illegal under federal law if sent to your mobile device without your consent."

    Yes, but then there's my dear friend Amy. She and her crew don't care about the law, use spoofed numbers that are different every time, etc. Reporting this wonderful person would do no good. All I have now is a cell phone, so all unsolicited sales calls are illegal. But some bully marketer called me and when I advised him that the states he can't call cell phones, he just started ranting. In spoofed number cases, I'm not sure there is even anything the govt can do.

    To date, this has been the only solution that handles these calls:

    One feature I didn't mention previously is that you benefit personally from numbers reported by the app's community of users.
