The Nomorobo beta app for Android has just been released. Just in time for me, since my smartphone gets so many robocalls I am afraid to answer it!
The first 30 days are free and $1.99 per month after that, or $19.99 per year.
Nomorobo specializes in blocking robocalls, including spoofed callerID. The method they use to identify the spoofed callerIDs is secret.
The iphone app has been available for several months:
Nomorobo for landline VoIP phones is free. I have been running it for several years on two lines and it really works well:
If your phone is used for personal use, you can set a ring tone for everyone in your contact list, that is different than your default ring tone. This does take a bit of time at first, but once it's done, it's easy to maintain.
This only works if you're only likely to get calls from your contact list. Likely won't work for business phones.
I use the good old fashioned bell ring, that you had on your older style home phone. My default ring is totally different and I give a quick look at the number and swipe left to hangup and let it go direct to voice mail.
If it's important they can leave a message or call back. I never get either result. Therefore it was a telemarketer.
I like the idea, but it is not worth it to me to pay $20 a year.
If I get a call from a number that is not on my phone, I just swipe to hang-up the phone and let it roll over to voice-mail. If it is legitimate, they will leave a message and I can call back with a couple of clicks.

we use it on our Ooma home phone. it's fantastic! can't wait to try the Android version!
Yes indeed, Ooma's abilities to blacklist callers are the best, as is the ability to screen calls! Some features need the Premier service but even that is cheap.

I've used them on my land line for quite some time and it works well. But, on my cell, I do what you do. If the caller isn't on my phone, I let it roll to voicemail. If it's really for me, they'll leave a message.
I do the same thing. I use it for my home phone.. Stopped so many of those calls but on my cell, It just as easy to "block" the call.. No need to answer it if I don't know who it is. No one should have my cell number unless I give it to them and I don't do that much.
