    I don't want to get a phone call from anyone who won't let Caller ID identify them. Is there a way to play a message that says something like "This person is not accepting calls from blocked IDs. Please unblock your ID and call again"?

    Put that on your voice mail message.
    If your caller id is blocked call again with your phone number showing.
    I heard others with similar type of voice mails.

    There's an app called YouMail that does just that.

    Seems that this year I am getting so many spammers calling my iPhone. Way more than last year. The government's No Call list is, as expected, a joke on us.

    Yes, same here, though most have their numbers being displayed. If I don't recognize the number, of even the location (why would someone from texas call me), I let it go to VM

    One thing about location is that with cell phone numbers that could be from anywhere it's hard to just rule things out based on location as those calling might not be from there at all.

    Same with the VM. I block these numbers but there seems to be no end to where in the country they come from or the number of numbers they use. I usually google the number and see others are getting the same spam calls. Credit Card Services are one of the worst offenders and if you call them and ask nicely to be removed from the list they will drop the "F" bomb on you in a second.

    I never call back anymore as I think it just makes it worst.

    Agreed, you can "spoof" the number and/or the location. If I do not recognize I send to voice mail, if they do not leave a message they get blocked. I got to have thousands of blacked numbers by now.
