Several years ago I changed my phone number to the area code where I grew up. I wasn't hoping I'd hear from friends or anything like that. The idea was to appear to be living somewhere else to mess with whatever metadata  there is out there that's compiled by BigTech to be sold to BigTelemarketer, w

Artifacts during night scenes

Hi, we had our U-verse installed yesterday. Overall our experience has been good, but we're seeing pretty noticeable artifacts during night scenes. The black background of the scenes has a ton of blocking / artifacts in it. We have a 55" TV and do not see the artifacts on BluRay. I know U-verse uses

Call Blocking Limit

I have Call Blocking and Call Protect, but I still get lots of robocalls and other junk. Why does AT&T have such a low limit - 99 - on blocked numbers? It makes Call Blocking almost worthless. It might help if blocked numbers were listed in order of entry or by date of block. That way, I could make

Call Blocking For Seniors

I am looking for a call blocking service or feature for my 90 yr old parent's phones.  They get scammers, con-men, posers, and other unsavory people preying on them daily.  Ridiculous!   Is there something out there, or a feature on their phone or through their provider (ATT) that is useful?

Why can't Telco's tag Internet calls?

Why can't AT&T validate a number before it passes on the call?  Even calls from the Internet have to gain access the public service telephone network (PSTN) at some point.  That Telco needs to validate a number or it should be fined.  I get about five to ten calls per day from random spoofed numbers

How to block these ridiculous automated calls

First off, I have a standard landline. None of this AT&T Uverse VoIP phone line. I have a residential landline. I prefer this as it works even without power and no battery backup like Uverse requires. With that being said, I bought a good handset that blocks up to 200 numbers and I have quite a few
