Default Block Calls On My Device?

Please Login to Remove!

For whatever reason I have been getting a rash of telemarketing calls on my device. Is there a way to block annoying calls?

Whatever you do, don't fall for the AT&T trap. They offer the service, but charge by the month. It's just one of the 10,000 sales pitches I've gotten in the 2 months since I joined their service.

They block someone from leaving a message not a call.
