How to stop unwanted sales calls?

I gave some information in November and they sold our phone number and we have been getting we solicitor calls at least 3 times per day. Many of them are silent, then hang up. All I wanted was to find someone to hang holiday lights on our house but all these contractors are calling us! One of them said he would take us off his list, but these calls could continue for years! We have already used all our 20 blocked numbers slots from ATT.
I've seen call filters/blockers I can buy - do those work?
My only solution seems to be to disconnect the ringer and tell people to wait for the beep and speak into the answering machine if they are not solicitors so I can pick up the phone.
I wish I could tell others which website started this all, but cannot remember. This is a serious issue that is affecting my quality of life since I work at home.
Anyone? Help, please.
