Primary day is tomorrow! No more robocalls for a few months.

If you do get them, some advice. Look at www.nomorobo.com!

From their website:
Nomorobo uses a feature known as "Simultaneous Ring". When simultaneous ring is enabled, your phone will ring on more than one number at the same time. The first device to pick it up gets the call and the other phones stop ringing.
So, when the Nomorobo number is enabled as a simultaneous ring number it is the first number to screen the call. If it’s a legitimate call, the call goes through to your number. If the call is an illegal robocaller, Nomorobo intercepts the call and hangs up for you. Your phone will ring once letting you know that the robocall has been answered and stopped.


I cleared out the caller ID at 1:00 today. Less than 7 hours later, there were 12 calls - 1 legitimate. I wanted to see if it was correct and googled some of the numbers that never made it to ring 2 - all were listed as robocalls on the google websites.

It has saved our sanity this primary season. It does not work with all providers - the provider has to offer the simultanious ring feature. You can thank me later!

Thanks for the tip Rocky. I'm not getting phone calls yet but I sure wish I could stop seeing the ads for 1 particular candidate.

A little dated

The FCC issued an “enforcement advisory” last week as a reminder to all the local, state and federal campaigns amid a report from CTIA-The Wireless Association of an increase in complaints about unwanted political calls being made to consumers’ wireless phones. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) has significant, and broad rules with regards to auto-dialed and prerecorded calls to cell phones.

What About Wireless Carriers?

Unfortunately, we are not supported on wireless carriers at this time. We are working on adding them, and will be sure to notify you as soon as we are able to.

Bummer, we did away with land lines years ago.

Is your cell phone perhaps using a ported landline number. Mine is, and I get a fair number of robo calls. i just don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize and have blocked calls without caller ID.
