I get 4-5 telemarketer calls each day. Each time they call, it is from a completely different phone number. Including different area codes.
I've performed all of the usual procedures to combat this.
• Contacted my carrier (AT&T). They will block 30 or so numbers for free but then it costs after that. This is useless because I get 30 different numbers in a week. AT&T suggested changing my number (for a FEE).
• I've changed my number. It went from bad to worse. I actually get more on this new number. I swear I don't put my number out there, I don't sign up for garbage, etc.
• I've tried telling these "companies" to remove me from their list. They immediately hang up on me when I do that. I've tried calling the numbers, it never goes through. They are unreachable. Even AT&T admitted they can't track them.
• I've registered for the national "do not call" registry. This hasn't helped at all.
I'm running out of ideas. I'd love to just turn my phone off but I can't because of work.
For each number I get, I immediately add it to the block numbers. But this only stops repeat numbers.
So, my question is, is there a way in iOS to literally block entire area codes? I seriously don't care if I block a few legit numbers for the sake of sanity. I sometimes get telemarketers from my area code but those are more rare.
I have an iPhone 6 with the latest version if that helps.
