We know spam callers are annoying @stevewallach,


Apple has a great support article on silencing unknown callers.

To turn on Silence Unknown Callers, go to Settings > Phone, scroll down, then select Silence Unknown Callers.


If you are using the AT&T Call Protect app, you can enable the unknown callers block option from the block settings in the app.


Hope this helps!
