How to stop unwanted phone callsCan we stop it? Yes you can. The most efficient, intelligent and affordable app we would recommend for your iPhone or Android smart phone is the Reverd free spam call detector app. It works for everyone with a cell phone regardless of the provider or the plan.
There are other techniques you have at your disposal that you can use to limit unwanted marketing and scam phone calls. A well-known classic way is to register your phone number (depending on your location) with the USA National Do Not Call Registry or Canada National Do Not Call List (DNCL). The Registration is free and permanent but keep in mind that Do Not Call Lists apply only nationally within the geographical borders of the country. And that is a problem. Scammers use technology nowadays and can call you from overseas ignoring the Do-Not-lists. Even if your number is registered, charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors may continue to call you. Companies with which you do business may also continue to call, unless you have asked them to stop calling you.
Instead the Reverd app works everywhere: in the forest, in the mountains, in a desert protecting your phone from harassing scam calls 24/7. Once installed the app does not even need Internet connection in order to function. The good thing is that the Reverd automatic scam stopping system is community supported. That means everyone protects everybody by reporting harassing phone calls directly from the phone.
Most phone companies are offering their landline customers the ability to block certain numbers from calling them. Call your local provider and have them clearly explain to you the steps to block a harassing phone number.
