How can we fight off the Robo Calls?

Been with BoostMobile for about 5 or more years now and enjoy the savings I get for using a company that piggy-backs its service off of one of the major players (Sprint).

I understand that there are sacrifices in customer service, phone selection, etc. that you have to put up with in order to be okay with being a satisfied Boost customer.

That said, I’m sure I’m not the only person who is bombarded with Robo Calls, and is annoyed every **bleep**ing time my phone rings now, because I know it’s about 10 times more likely to be some random ass number from who knows where calling about “student loans” or “health insurance” or the “local authorities”....

I’ve taken the steps to put my information on the government do not contact list and that did nothing.

There are several apps that say they offer relief but they charge a monthly fee and don’t say that they work for Boost Mobile users.

Other carriers have come out recently with their own free to their customers Apps that supposedly promise some sort of relief... so I ask BOOST - where’s our help?
