My mobile number has been flagged as spam

I called a friend of mine recently and they said my phone number (even though it was in their contacts list) showed up as a spam risk by the service they have installed on their phone. This is a big problem for me, since I use this number for both personal and business calls in which I make outbound sales calls for a living. How can I look into this further and get my number cleared from any spam detection or black lists?

Hello,

The app is AT&T Call Protect and is free to download and use for AT&T customers. You can download it and possibly try and change it thru app.

You did state it’s used for outgoing sales calls for business, which would make it valid for another person receiving these calls to simply mark your number a SPAM risk through the self reporting option in app. Hard to say if that’ll change, since your line is spamming people with outbound sales calls if they are unsolicited.
