We've all been there. The phone starts ringing at the worst possible moment and you pick it up only to hear a pre-recorded voice saying: "Hello. This is a call for ..." It's enough to drive you up the wall. Those irritating robotic phone calls waste your time peddling everything from car insurance to time shares.
How can you stop these annoying phone calls? Signing up with the Do Not Call registry is a good step. However, this won't stop every call. Luckily, there is another step you can take. This unique service blocks illegal robocalls.
The service lets the phone ring once, and then it identifies the caller. If the caller is a robot telemarketer, it hangs up. It also only blocks robotic calls people report as illegal, so you won't miss a doctor's appointment reminder, a school call, or a weather alert. Unfortunately, it does not yet block political or charity calls, but it's in the works.
