Although the amount of robo calls I receive has lessened from a high of 18 in one day, if memory serves me right, they do continue. I just received 2 in the last 5 minutes. I also get a fair share of spam texts. If I don’t recognize the number – especially if it’s a number with the area code I use which isn’t the area code of where I live, I reject the call without picking up. The same with texts and spam mail.
So the solution, according to Fox Business, is to download and use one of the apps such as Hiya Caller ID, RoboKiller and Nomorobo. The problem is that in order for those apps to work I have to give them access to a lot of data on my smartphone and give them autonomy to make calls. No thank you.
Verizon and AT&T have apps with their services but as a long time customer of Verizon until a bit over a month ago I can tell you that their app was worthless. I was using it when I received those 18 calls in one day.
Oh, those 18 calls? That was from about a 12 hour period.
Oh, one other thing; though I might have the number blocked on my phone I will sometimes get a voice mail. My phone will show that the call was rejected but somehow they can leave a voicemail. When I listen to the voicemail, unless I recognize it as someone I know, DELETE! It doesn’t matter who they say they are or what stated purpose the VM is left for, I delete it. I learned this from listening to a voicemail that had to do with an appointment for a medical procedure for someone other than me. Nice guy me called the number to let them know they had the wrong number. WRONG! The medical procedure was to screw me. It was a scam.
