1. Reject Anonymous Calls Automatically Many robocalls come up as “anonymous” using *77
Read a USAToday article, "How to stop robocalls, block numbers on your iPhone, Android and even landline," today at 1034 hrs, Feb 7 2019. Here's what I read and in fact did: 1. Reject Anonymous Calls Automatically
Many robocalls come up as “anonymous” on your caller ID, while most businesses and human beings come up as identifiable phone numbers. Chances are, you could terminate all anonymous calls without missing anything important.
Depending on your service, you may have access to Anonymous Call Rejection. Try this on your landline. Make sure your caller ID is activated. Enter the magic number *77, and you will hear three beeps. Hang up, and any call that hides its number will be rejected.
Here's what happened:
- Stopped getting anonymous calls on my landline, but...
- STARTED getting REPEATED calls from 800-633-4227 at the following times (same day):
- 1051 hrs
- 1100 hrs
- 1144 hrs
- 1311 hrs
- 1725 hrs
Did I cure one plague by incurring a new one?!?
