    In the US going to and registering for their service offers much better results that registering with DoNotCall list. Political calls are exempt from DoNotCall so now that an election is coming up, people registered with DoNotCall will be flooded with all kinds of political calls from candidates.

    NoMoRobo allows you to register a phone number you want to block, no matter whether it is a politician, a charity, a direct marketer or a someone just making annoyance phone calls. I have been using NoMoRobo for a few years now and have rarely been bothered by unwanted callers.
