    Call Blocking for iPhone 8+
    Recently installed NOMOROBO on my landline (actually VOIP). Any suggestions on what program I can use on my iPhone?

    The App Store has some good suggestions. I personally use "HiYa" which is free. You could also keep your iPhone on "Do Not Disturb" which only allows calls from those folks and numbers that are in your Contacts App. I use both methods and am almost never bothered by robo or spam calls.

    I have Hiya, but just noticed it's not turned on in Settings > Phone > Call Blocking & Identification.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    That's right. You do need to turn it on after installing. Also, I noticed that after each update to iOS it's best to check to make sure that your call blocker and spam blocker remains on.

    Thanks guys. I'll try HiYa. Also saw a 2012 post where a guy created a contact (i used BLACKLIST) that has no ringtone (had to buy that from iTunes and added all his robocalls to that contact. I think that way the number is not blocked, but it
    does not ring. Of course you need to add each number to the list. Yesterday I started receiving various numbers starting with a Manhattan area code but actually coming from Morocco!! Blocked most, but added one to BLACKLIST after I created that contact . Pete
