    Must be an AT&T thing. I have Verizon and don't get them.

    Neither the wife or I are getting them. We have AT&T IPhone 6 and 10 with the latest updates.

    Just read a short article where AT&T promises to block all robocalls very soon.

    Will be interesting to learn how ATT can trace and identify robocalls.

    Evidently their blocking service has been "opt in" for several years. Now becoming automatic, and subscribers can "opt out".

    I'm betting ATT isn't really doing anything new - just changing how subscribers get the service.

    Well, we'll see how it works. And even if they do scammers will just move on to something else either with phones or the net or something.
