    I do. I live in Florida and signed up for the state's "no-call" registry. I'm not sure it helps. I still receive lots of calls; I presume most of them are foreigners. I use TMobile. How about you?

    I use T-Mobile, and get spam calls all the time. A lot of times if I'm sitting at my computer I won't answer the call, and I'll Google the number. 9 times out of 10 it's been reported as spam by at least a few people.

    Yes. Would you be interested in a vacation package?

    Not a lot maybe 2 or 3 a week. A bunch more to my land line. Not sure why I keep that old thing, I guess I'm nostalgic.

    I have Verizon and I use a Panasonic phone. The phone has a button on the bottom that says "Call Block." I hit that button as soon as they start talking and that number can never get through again. Even the Robo calls are blocked forever. Try it, you'll like it.

    I get spam calls virtually every day, almost always from a bogus number. I don't sign up with no-call; I strongly suspect it sets you up for even more of that shit.

    All of this is on the cell phone, never on the landline.
