    Seems today's a bad telemarketer day. Getting tons of calls from restricted and unknown. Any way to block or send to voicemail. I can find a way to block anonymous callls

    Just don't answer. People you know will leave a voicemail. Spammers won't.

    Use the Moto app, enable flip for Do Not Disturb and turn the phone face down on days like this. You won't be disturbed and real callers will leave a voicemail. There is no "magic app" to block all calls for you.

    Sounds like it's time to get an iPhone 11. There is no reason to keep up. Each OS can do things the other cannot do. If I'm not busy....I just don't answer calls from unknown numbers. If I'm busy....flip enables DND. Simple.

    Simple solution...get an inexpensive Android Wear watch. Flip the phone for DND. You won't hear any ring sounds from the phone. The watch will vibrate to let you know a call is inbound. In a quick glance you can decide what action to take. If you know the name - answer. If not - let it go to voicemail. Simple.

    My "bandaid" approach has worked good for me since January 2015. I haven't been bother by spam callers in four + years, since I bought my first smart watch. And....no one from Google and no one from Moto reads these posts. It's just us forum members here.
