stopping or blocking international spam calls

New user.  

How do you stop or block international spam calls that happen all times of the night and on my cell?  Each call rings once and sometimes leave a blank message. My 'recents' are full the next day and I have to wade through multiple voice messages to get the one valid one I may have received. I have blocked each separate number and am up to approximately 100 blocked numbers.

 

I did see some suggestions when I first navigated to this site but once I registered, I can't locate those responses.

Welcome to the Neighbourhood. Enabling Call Control (free) is the recommended way. It's extremely effective in screening out automated calls.

You can white list numbers so they can call you directly without being prompted to press a key.
