Mr. Number

After years of having a company phone (previous job), I wanted an iPhone so I got a new plan with a new number. I’ve had that number since 2008. Over time, I’ve started to get more and more spam phone calls.

A friend of mine recently showed me a really neat app from from The White Pages called Mr Number. It comes pre-loaded with a a couple of thousand numbers that it knows to be scam, fraud, or spam. Once you give it access to your contacts, it will create a single entry pre-loaded with all of the bad numbers it has. If you get called by one of these numbers, you’ll instantly know based on the contact name. Best of all, it’s free.
