Every now and again, you get a phone call from a number you don’t know and get inconvenienced by silence or an automated voice.You could ask your cellphone provider to block specific numbers, but that won’t help much. Many if not all of these spam calls come from computer-generated numbers and rarely ever show up as the same number.Fortunately, app developer Sean Harding created No Neighbor to help with the problem of spoofed calls on your iPhone.Once enabled, the app sends all calls with a similar 10-digit phone number to yours directly to voice mail.The similar phone numbers that are blocked have the same area code and prefix as yours.The app gives the option of creating a whitelist, or calls from numbers you want to go through. This helps especially with other phone numbers that are connected to your phone plan and may be similar to yours.The app is simple and easy to do. All that is required of you is to enter your phone number and enable call blocking in your settings.
