Some automated calls, such as those from airlines, schools and pharmacies are useful, but many others are unwelcome and intrusive.
Unwanted phone calls are a nuisance, which is why the wireless industry collectively stops more than a million robocalls from reaching consumers every day.
Unfortunately, there are malicious individuals who are working 24/7 to circumvent wireless companies’ efforts, which is why you play an important role by reporting them and therefore helping block them.
There are a variety of features and tools available from wireless companies to help you stop these calls. It is vital that consumers determine what is a nuisance communication and what is allowed as well as to not have a “one-size-fits-all” approach to stopping robocallers. If there was only one or even a few options, it would be simple for the bad actors to work around. By having a multitude of solutions, you’re helping combat the issue.
