    I have a cell phone that doesn't have built in call screening (Moto E).

    Here is my solution to screen calls. I created a White-list of allowed callers. Here's how.

    In Audacity on my PC I created a 10-second Silent MP3 ringtone.

    I loaded this Silent MP3 ringtone into my Moto E and made it the Default ring. Then for all of my desired contacts, I gave them individual real ringtones.

    Now when an unknown caller calls (like a robo-call, telemarketer, etc, etc), it doesn't ring my phone and disturb me, as they get the Silent ringtone. They can still leave a voice-mail. But I would rather screen them that way then have to deal with a live annoying caller.

    I'm not giving them my email address while this appears on their site:

    What other kind of phone is there for it to be available on? Just VoIP services I guess? I don't have one of those anyway.
