Been getting calls on cell phone from foreign nations?

All of a sudden I got calls from Senegal and Belarus to my cell phone. I don’t know why. I never give number out and on do not call list. I usually never get robo scam shit to cell phone ever. I block obviously, but anyway to stop them?

Stop people from dialing your number? I don't think so, unless you block all international calls or something. Even then they'll just spoof some local number. Just don't answer calls from numbers you don't recognize and change your voicemail to the generic one.

Having a 5+ year old phone isn't a great idea, imo.

It's happening to a lot of people lately. Been in the news, basically don't answer calls you don't k ow and if you're calling someone who doesn't have your number you HAVE to leave a message if you expect them to know you called.

Frankly, I'm surprised we didn't reach this ridiculous point sooner.
