Robocalls out of control

Editor:
I have just registered all my phone numbers with the Florida do-not-call program as apparently the federal registry does no good. I have been getting numerous telemarketing calls, both on my cell phone and my landline, especially for credit consolidation. These are prerecorded calls that if you listen all the way through, give you an option to be put on their do not call lists, which they pay no attention to. I received another call within the hour. Now I’ve read you shouldn’t validate your number by pressing a button.

Since robocalls are so out of control, I think free caller ID (for landlines) and a free reverse number look-up directory should be made available to us although many numbers aren’t valid, as well as providing us with a way to block these calls. Neither of my phones nor service providers allow me to block calls.

Currently, all directories I’ve found are linked to a pay service for caller disclosure. As long as I am paying for my phone services, I should have the right to govern who calls my phones.
