Features Request - Google Voice Style - Accept Calls Press 1.

Call Defense is not working that I can see. Appears to be active. However, I receive 2-4 spam calls per day + 1-2 SMS per month. This has increased by about 50% since joining Cricket and is unacceptable.


I would like an optional feature added similar to Google Voice which requires caller to press 1 to get through. This would block 90% of the automated and good portion of the live spam calls. (like Google voice)  Other MNO/MVNO’s are starting to add this. How tough can it be?
