Blocking spam calls with 1) caller id "Unavailable" 2) neighbor spam

1) I have my FiOS phone service set up to reject all anonymous/private calls such as those made using the *67 function.  However, recently I have been getting a lot of spam calls coming through in which the caller id displays "unavailable".  It seems like these calls are treated differently than private/anonymous *67 calls and are being allowed to go through.

 

2) Also, I would love to have a way to block an entire local exchange.  I live in a big city and have yet to meet someone who has the same area code and exchange that I do, so when I get a call like that I know it's spam.  For those in rural areas with a limited number of exchanges, there should be a way to whitelist certain #s even when the entire exchange is blocked.
