The technology is already available. There's gotta be an app for that!
I have an old-fashioned Verizon flip-flone which includes the "Security" option to (1) Allow All Calls, (2) allow Contacts Only, or (3) Block All Calls. However, unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a single Smartphone that does the same.
With this Verizon cellphone, if the caller's phone number is NOT listen among the Contacts that you programmed into your phone, not only is the phone number recorded (if available), but the call is not allowed, and your phone doesn't even ring. You can find a list of the blocked calls in your Recent Calls, under Blocked. This way, if someone is blocked accidentally, you can add the person's/company's phone number to your Contacts, and it will automatically unblock.
In addition, Comcast offers a way to block out 12 landline callers. Logon to Comcast.net, click on Voicemail > Preferences (on the toolbar) > Choose Voice > Call Blocking. Limited to 12, but that's better than nothing.
Now, barring the manual options outlined above, since the technology IS available for both cellphones and landlines, there's gotta be an app for that, right?!
Verizon... Comcast... You listenin'?
