We've all been there. It's dinner time and your phone rings, its an unknown number, and your meal is interrupted. A free robocall blocking app looks to put an end to that.

Its expected that Verizon will be rolling a free robocall blocking app by the end of March. The company already offers an app for $2.99 a month that blocks robocalls by comparing numbers to a known spam list.

Robocalls are illegal and millions of Americans are still getting these calls regularly.

AT&T and Comcast have also announced they are working together to limit these robocalls.
