Sick and tired of the robocalls and spam calls you get on your landline or mobile phone? Beyond registering your phone number with the FTC’s Do Not Call Registry (which doesn’t stop scammers and disreputable telemarketers from calling you), you can take other actions.

These tools can also be used to stop unwanted text messages. Let’s check them out.
