United States: National Do Not Call Registry
While the DNC list is not growing at the same rate as when it first launched in 2003, more and more people are signing up every day. At the end of 2010, the FCC report estimates approximately 672 million phone numbers are assigned to a person or company. The FTC also estimates that over 183 million numbers were on the National Do Not Call list by 2010. From these numbers, it is estimated that over 25% of the assigned phone numbers in the US are signed up for the National Registry. A report by the Bush Administration in 2007 estimates that up to 72% of Americans had registered on the list. During the same period, the CTIA estimates approximately 303 million of those phone numbers were wireless meaning that approximately 45% of issued numbers are wireless. While wireless numbers do not need to be included on the registry to avoid unsolicited calls, consumers may still add their wireless number to the list. FCC regulations prohibit the use of automatic dialers from calling cellular numbes under any circumstance. Learn more about the Do Not Call list including how to sign up. Since 2005, any number added to the Natiional Registry will remain unless the number becomes invalid, disconnected, reassigned, or the owner of the number requests removal.
Popularity by State
The map below shows the number of registrations on the DNC list per 100k residents as of Sept 2016.
Recorded Messages: The Rise of the Robocall
While the growth of new registrations has slowed, the number of complaints filed is growing every year. Over 5 million complaints were filed with the FTC in 2016 - more than ever before.
On September 1, 2009, the National Registry began accepting all complaints regarding calls using a recorded message, regardless of the registration status of the called number. As you can see from the graphs below, a great deal of those complaints were filed against auto-dialed calls that play a recorded message (aka. robocalls). While around 43% of complaints reported in 2010 were due to robocalls, that percentage skyrocketed over the next few years to 64% in 2016.

Complaints for Recorded Messages
* Stats are only available prior to Oct 2016. The remainder of the year is estimated.
The DNC list will not stop all unsolicited calls. The following types of calls are still legal.
- The registry applies to residential lines only (no business lines can be registered)
- Calls from political organizations
- Calls from non-profits
- Calls for surveys
- Calls from companies which the consumer contacted in the past 31 days unless the company is asked not to call
- Calls from debt collectors
Canada: National Do Not Call List
The Canadian Do Not Call list has been administered by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) since 2006. Like the DNC list in the US, phone numbers do not need to be resubmitted, but there are exemptions for some unsolicited calls like charities, political organizations, pollsters, and businesses with a prior relationship just like in the US. In addition to registering with the national list, Canadians are encouraged to request to be added to each internal company's list of numbers not to call each time they receive an unwanted call.

United Kingdom: Telephone Preference Service (TPS)
The TPS was introduced in 2009 and revised in 2003. It is regulated by the Office of Communications (Ofcomm), enforced by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), and run by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA). Like the Do Not Call lists of the US and Canada, resubmitting or renewing a number already on the list is not necessary. Unlike other countries, the TPS prohibits charities, voluntary organizations, and political parties from making calls to numbers on the TPS with prior consent to do so. However, exceptions do exist for debt collectors. They are not required to screen the numbers that they call through the TPS. Learn more about the Telephone Preference Service including how to sign up.

Caller name: "Federal Government"
Said they selected me at random to receive a $7,000 grant from the federal government because I didn't have a criminal background and paid my bills on time. I let him continue and he stated I could receive the funds through a wire transfer (Western Union, MoneyGram, etc). When I pressed him to tell me which department of the federal government he was calling from, he hung up. I tried to call back and it was a Google Voice number.
Caller name: Claims to be Representative for Credit Card
Received a call from 856-910-5497 claiming to be a "representative" from a credit card company, looking to lower my interest rate. When I asked the name of the credit card company, or his name, he refused to give me the info. I asked him to remove my number and stop calling. He became belligerent and said he would keep calling every day. He shouted profanities and hung up.
Caller name: Diane Arsenault
We also receive as many as 3 ro 4 phone called per day from this number. I have blocked the number now. This same "person"/"number" called us last year until I blocked another number at this time. Total harrassment.
I keep getting calls but no message.
Asks "Is the Lady of the house home?" I say yes, but she doesn't take solicitations of any kind and hang up. We have received about ten calls, even after putting them off or not answering the number.
Caller name: Not Available
10-919-790-8786 and 09197908786 makes a computer call at 7:16AM, 7 times back to back in seconds. Which the 09197908786 loops the call in a endless ring. And interesting enough, my ISP refuses to block this number... Hmm.
This number calls several times a week. Very annoying. Legitament companies do not hide behind an untrackable/unidentifiable number, I make it a habit not to answer calls that come up as 'unknown' and do not leave an identifying message. I am considering changing my number and going 'unpublished/unlisted.
Caller name: Auto Warranty Robocall
Robocall stating my automobile warranty was about to expire and I needed to renew it. The message asked if I wanted to speak to a warranty specialist. I said nothing and hit the # key as an answer, and after two times they hung up.

Caller name: CAREMARK CVS
Automated caller left number for me to call back., I called back.
They said they had my phone number so did not need to enter the seven digit code.....They asked for my date of birth.... Said my important medication was over due..
I called CVS later,, they are not affiliated.
I do not use CAREMARK or CVS
They call and call and call and won't leave a message. We don't answer. Annoying!
Caller name: SSI
Go to the SSI site, as have your number removed from their call lists. They'll keep trying the numbers they've got until they fill their survey quota. Note: surveys do not violate the Do Not Call list.
Same complaint as everyone else.
I just put them on my phone number block app and they don't bug me anymore since filing a complaint doesn't do a d**n thing to stop them!
Just had those Jackasses call me now twice
Today (4/24/17), I received a call from 813-292-8106 out of Florida. I didn't answer, since I didn't recognize. However, after Googling it, I see it's a SPAM call. So I just add it to my address book under SPAM CALLS. However, every time I do this, I NEVER get called twice by same number, so my list is growing. I can't block these calls because I'm on a monthly card (not any contracted plans). Also, not sure if it matters, but my phone # is a Colorado #.
This is an automated verification call number from Google, after adding a mobile phone as one of my phones to be used on my Google Voice Acct from my PC.
On my PC they showed me a code number to entered from my mobile phone when they call. I answered the call from my mobile phone, entered the code number when prompted, and Goggle Voice added it as a VALID phone belonging to ME.
Relax folks, 80% of the hysteria here is from the superstitious. It is caused by people entering the wrong phone number on their Google Voice accts, or not responding to the call generated by the addition so it gets repeated and repeated, or someone wants to just harass you by purposely entering your phone number into their Google Voice Acct (or similar app that need phone verification.
Caller name: Global services
Been calling my phone all day leaving voice mails, female speaking very soft and friendly that she is calling from global services and to call her back immediately and gives a toll free number. Scam! I don't and and don't call back. Especially after reading reviews here. I don't owe any company money and certainly not a pay day loan company.
after refusing to make a donation to the organization this person represents, we have been receiving phone calls from this number, asking for us by name or saying nothing. when we ask who is calling, they hang up. we have filed a police report for telephone harassment.
Caller name: Card Services
Automated call, pretty much like described in above comments. I opted to speak to a real person, notifying him of being on the DNC list and again requested my number not be called. Received 15-20 calls over the last month or so - despite repeated requests to quit calling.
Caller name: I Support Experts
First you get a message that says it is from Microsoft that you have a virus and you must call them immediately. The number they want you to call (one of them) is 855-622-8558. I called it and it was an automated voice wanting me to hold. I hung up. They immediately called me back and said I had been disconnected when I called in. He stated he is providing support for Microsoft.
