Wanted: The "Whitelist" Pre-paid Cell Phone

Franky if I'm paying for a phone service when I answer, the last thing I want is dead air or some stupid advert call. And apparently the FCC is unwilling to do squat about dead air calls. (I've done one complaint already)...

So, what I'd like is at least one provider stepping up to the plate to institute a technical fix. A phone that only rings on white-listed numbers.

Here's how I propose that it works:

Then on top of the white-list incoming call features, you would have two ways of handling non-whitelisted numbers.

I don't think such a service would be all that hard to implement either. But I do think cell phone users would really like to have something like this. How about it?
