Spam isn't just a problem in email or texts. Click here to learn about the five ways telemarketers get your phone number.

To stop the spam, you need a good spam filter. That's why I've rounded up the best spam filter apps just for you.

Please keep in mind that Apple's upcoming iOS 7 has built-in call blocking. You can turn it on by going to Settings>>Phone>>Blocked>> Add New>> then select or add the number to block. This will block them from phone calls, text messages and FaceTime.

SpamDrain - This app deletes spam before it even reaches your inbox. It's a cloud-based affair, so you can use it with multiple devices. You can also set it up to monitor multiple accounts.

Privacy Star - This app will let you block an unlimited amount of calls and texts. It also provides a handy caller ID feature.

Call Bliss - With Call Bliss, you can make sure that calls you don't want won't bother you. All you need to do is set up a blacklist from within the app. Once your blacklist is set up, whenever someone from the blacklist calls you, your phone won't ring.
