This is exactly what I do - “press 1 for a human”
Works great

Subject: Re: [asterisk-users] Block Spam Calls

Most spam calls are robocalls these days. At my house, I can block pretty much all of the robocalls by requiring the caller to take some action before ringing the phones. In our case, the action is just to dial 1 for my wife or 2 for me. The only difference it makes in the end is which voice mailbox the caller gets transferred to if no one answers, but since asterisk so programmable, there are a lot of ways to accomplish the basic concept. I can see tons of calls in my log that never get through to bother us.

Hi All.  Does anybody know if Google/Android has an API I can sign up for that will allow us to query the caller ID and find out if it is spam or a robocaller?  I ask because we've had increase in spam calls and I'd like to simply play dead air or something really annoying.

Thanks all,
