I have a very complete contacts list including all professionals (Dr,Dentist, Optometrist, etc).  I simply will not answer the IPhone if itís not a contact or identified person I know.

One quick push of the power button mutes the ringer.

Text messages are easily deleted by sliding sideways.

The amount of spam calls with spoofed numbers is just ridiculous, fortunately 80% donít bother with messages.

The current scams:
Apparently my Social Security account has been frozen at least ten times, and my Seattle City Light Account will be cut off (I have Puget Power).
Microsoft Tech Support calling on a weekend is comical, I sure you just need to give them remote access...

My old man handled crank calls in a similar manner:

"Judy went out to take a sh## and the hogs ate her."

Reading all the above posts, makes me think I am a rarity. I get so few spam phone calls and texts that I can count the number I get a year on one hand. And I have had the same phone number for almost 10 years for my cell phone. I used to get a lot of spam calls when I had a landline.

The last two I got were ones I hadnít had before. A Tacoma area phone number called with an automated recording saying that my Apple ID had been compromised and please press 1 to fix the problem. The other was a spam text message from a Dallas, Texas number saying I 3 past due claims on my credit report. I looked up both numbers on the internet and for each I found out that they were from scammers.

I have not had any Carmelita texts for 2 days.  The thing I donít understand is why my iPhone isnít filtering them into that ďotherĒ folder.  And why are they always addressed to Carmelita?  Are they trying to get you to click on a link to install a virus?  I donít understand the purpose of them.
