is there a good app that will stop all the spam calls? i have tracfone and to stop mine i have blocked 3 of the area area codes. so i do not get many if any calls. i do not use my phone much in fact i have made maybe 10 calls on it in 10 years. so for me i made a family section and put in allowed callers, but the wife uses her phone way more and she get tons of robo and spam calls every day. it does not good to use that do not call registry as everytime i enter my land line the robocalls go up by the hundreds every week, they then drop off some. so on my land line i set the answering machine to take 4 rings that has slowed most down. but the wifes cell still gets them.

so i'm wondering if there is an app she can install that will filter them out and allow her to enter the numbers she needs to get thru to her. most of the calls she would answer anyway have their names shown so she knows who is calling but the spam and robo calls use numbers now that look like local numbers and she pick up and bam another spam.

thanks. bp.
