Block all anonymous calls

New Poster

Block all anonymous calls

Block all anonymous calls is useless.  Ask Comcast to put some teeth into this service.

 

Every day I block new numbers.  Most of them either have the phone number repeated, sometimes

with VM in front of it as the caller ID,   or   it just has a city, state as the caller ID.

 

While the caller ID does not say 'anonymous', these calls are anonymous and all spammers, tele-

marketters and robocallers.  I should be able to block them if I want with just the checking of a box,

but one that actually works.

I added NoMoRobo to my Comcast VOIP service and those calls while they still come in, only ring once and the call is blocked by NoMoRobo...  you can visit www.nomorobo.com and read if that service can help.

Re: Block all anonymous calls

Thanks,

That's funny, as I had just now signed up nomorobo just b/4 reading your reply.

We'll see how it works.  But, for the record, Comcast takes in 100's of millions of dollars

monthly and will not put their software crew on creating a fix for it's millions of subscribers.

 

I talked directly to a rep from the CEO and that rep also recommended nomorobo, which

I felt was a copout b/c they could fix it if they wanted, just as they could offer cafeteria style

programming instead of everything is always in a package of 100 channels, for instance, where

you may only watch 20-30 of them.

I just bought a Smart TV and intend to figure out how to soon ditch Comcast Cable and get

everthing I need over the internet thru hulu and netflix etc etc

I just need everyone to join me, then maybe Comcast will join this century
