Why even block spam calls?

I know NomoRobo is offered by default, but what does it really do anymore?

Since the beginning of the year, I've had a total of 14 calls blocked.

But I know I get about 5 - 7 spam calls a day.

The spammers use automated dialing systems that sometimes get legitimate numbers. But most of the time, they use a similar prefix to my number so it's not blocked.

At one point NomoRobo was a great feature, but now it looks like the spammers have figured out how to defeat it.

I've long since given up reporting numbers.... it just seems like an exercise in futility.

What would help some people (not fix for everyone) would be the ability to use wildcards for the number to block. My first entry would be 800-***-****. Would stop about 25% of my spam calls.

Can this be implemented ? If not why ? ........ Sonic needs to pester their software vendor.
