Tired of getting calls about your car’s extended warranty?  We’ve got some good news – and some bad news.

The good news – those annoying ‘robocalls’ are starting to go away.  According to reports, robocalls in the U.S. were down 29% in August compared to June.

The bad news?  Spam text messages went up by 8% over the same time period, and are up by more than 50% over last year.

Overall, more than 2 billion robocalls and 7 billion spam texts are sent each month in the U.S.

How many robocalls do you get in a typical day?  Should phone providers be doing more to stop them?
