If you are constantly getting robocalls, the first thing you should do is register your phone number. This is the best protection you can have against any spammer.

Some of these free apps include T-Mobile Scam Block, Spring Premium Caller ID, Verizon Call Filter, and AT&T Call Protect. All of the four apps previously listed are available through your carrier. Fortunately there are also third-party apps you can download to block these calls as well.
