>>it has always been illegal for a phone company to block a phone call.

But the fcc proposal would protect wireless carriers and give them the freedom to aggressively block robocalls by using new technology.

Here's how it works.

Your phone number would get a token or a certificate from your wireless carrier and then if a phone call is placed using your number the wireless carrier would verify that is coming from your phone.
