I get more robo calls than friend calls. However, I just found a way to silence (the ring for) any calls that aren't in my contact list and my phone life has improved 100%.

I also hate having to speak w/ a robot before I get a human. Feels like bridge trolls blocking my passage. They can't understand why I'm calling but still won't put me through!

All the time. And spam. And someone trying to trick me into giving them money.

Oh my, so many I no longer answer. My call block has over 450 numbers and I still get dozens a day!

They are many, and I let my voice mail answer. I've also found that including my professional title in the greeting usually evokes an immediate disconnect and, over time, fewer calls.

I answer all calls if I can, even if I don't recognize the number, just in case a family member had to use another person's phone. I put the number of robos in my contact list as Spam and not answer it next time. If I have time, I will stay on the line and say, "Take my number off your call list."

They are constant. Even though I do not answer them I have to go clear out "messages" with no content.
