Early this century, Americans actually caught a break from the federal government with the institution of the National Do Not Call Registry. Phone owners frustrated by endless solicitation calls could add their number to the list…and the annoying phone calls would stop. And they did, with more than 3 out of 4 Americans reporting a large difference in the number of telemarketing calls that they received in 2007.
But telemarketers got wise. That’s when robocalls, which unfortunately aren’t governed by the Do Not Call list, started to skyrocket. Now, we were subjected to nearly 60 billion robocalls last year. And you probably feel like you’ve answered most of them.
You don’t have time for that. Or the patience. That’s why 12 million users have signed on with Call Control, an artificial intelligence-based app tool that can keep all those robo-nuisances away from your number. Right now, a one-year subscription to Call Control Premium service is available at $19.99, a $10 savings off the regular price.
Call Control uses community reports and various Do Not Call complaints to assemble their own roster of bad callers, blocking thousands of spam and other unwanted calls and texts from ever reaching your phone. Scammers and phishers won’t know what hit ‘em.
And Call Control works whether it’s a robocall, an annoying telemarketer, a scam, a bully or just any person you don’t want to talk to. You can also maintain your own personal blacklist of blocked numbers and texts to add to your quarantine zone. Call Control has already blocked 1 billion callers for its users, so you can rest assured it’ll have you covered when you need it.
Meanwhile, Call Control is also chock full with other useful features to keep calls you don’t want from wasting your time, including automatic Caller ID, a reverse phone number lookup to reveal unknown numbers as well as quiet hour settings to keep your phone from ringing at night or during an important meeting.
And those 12 million users are highly satisfied with Call Control, with a solid 4 out of 5 star rating from nearly 100,000 Apple App Store and Google Play reviews.
A year of access to all of Call Control’s premium service features is a $29 value, but right now, you can get that same 12 months of smartphone protection for only $19.99.
