My wife & I receive robo-calls & live telemarketer calls on our cellphones, here in Florida, even though we are registered on the "Do Not Call" list. Same with our home phone number & her business lines. I think the protection which used to be on cellphones has expired.

One thing about robo-calls; I find it easier to feed it lies, than I would do to a real person. Had a robo-call on Saturday, offering to "Lower the interest on my school loans." I told the machine I had "About $100,000 in School loans." Then it asked me if I was currently working & I said, "No."
[I was not working at that particular minute... But the $100,000 was a lie.

I have wired or wireless phones all over my house and I dropped my ATT landline last year, switched to Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable) which has worked well, and now my cheap year $9.99/month with them is about up.  I'd like to keep and transfer my number to a provider that would ALSO ring my cell phone; it would have to have good robo-call blocking.  If it's a landline call being forwarded to my cell phone, I'd like to know that, too.

I still have, though unused in a long while, both a MagicJack Plus and Google Voice account.  I've read that GV doesn't do 911, but I think it can ring several types of phone lines.  Not sure if MagicJack handles 911 or can ring other lines.  I do have MJ's little box that plugs into my UPS and the internet.

I'm willing to purchase an Ooma or other interface, but whatever I get would be nice if it's really cheap after that.
