    Are you guys getting the ones that come up as United States but the phone number has too many digits? I just started getting these around two or three weeks ago and just this week started blocking every single unrecognizable number and now the calls have stopped. Hope it doesn’t start again. Here’s a partial list of calls that sent me over the edge.

    Since I started this thread, I have received only 3 or 4 robocalls. I do not know if my double-button push I talked about is having anything to do with this robocall relief or if it is what looks like a new measures that the U.S Govt. is working on.

    Maybe relief for us all is in sight. I am assuming that The Feds are not going to let the phone companies start using blocking technology as a new revenue stream.

    " It marks the latest effort by regulators to battle back the tide of unwanted and illegal calls from telemarketers and scammers.
    Some of those targeted by the action were a major source of robocalls. Derek Jason Bartoli, a Florida man who allegedly developed, sold and used a form of software that allows millions of calls to be placed in quick succession, was responsible for 57 million calls to US phone numbers over six months in 2017, according to a federal complaint.

    "By putting people like Derek Bartoli out of business, we are able to deprive the robocallers of the important tools of their trade," said Andrew Smith, director of the FTC's bureau of consumer protection, in a press conference Tuesday.

    AT & T is going to block robocalls.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/10/tech/att-spam-call-blocking/index.html

    " The company already provided call blocking to mobile customers who downloaded the AT&T Call Protect app or opted in via their account settings. Landline customers had also been able to opt in. Now, AT&T customers will only have to opt out via their account settings if they don't wish to have calls blocked."

    All I can say is that is about time. I think I'll go out and dance in the street.
