Does anyone know of a cordless phone (with voicemail or without) that silences the ringer for the first ring?
Why would I want that? Because I use Nomorobo, but it doesn't divert the unwanted call until after the first ring; the caller ID doesn't "appear" until after the first ring. So the only solution is to buy a phone that lets you silence the ringer for the first ring - the electronic signal is received, the Caller ID turns on, the call is diverted to Nomorobo Heck, and you never hear a thing: OR, if it is a legitimate call, all you lose is that first ring. On the second ring signal, the ringer turns on, you hear it and answer.
Comcast obviously lacks the technology to send a "silent" signal that turns on Caller ID but doesn't trigger a phone ringer to ring. They've told me as much.
So again, it's up to we the people to solve the problem.
The alternative is to drop landlines and go all cell. Cellular phones have lots more options. For example, my cell phone is set to receive only calls from people on my favorites list. Comcast/Xfinity could offer this, but of course they aren't going to.

Until two weeks ago we could watch The Good Fight and other CBS network programs through our Comcast subscription, on our APPLE TV device. We did watch it. We enjoyed it. Today, however, we cannot watch it without paying a toll to CBS all accsex.
Why did this stop? Is Cable dead? Is CBS extorting money from its viewers? What's up?
I blame Comcast. I am seriously considering bying an antenna and dropping Comcast cable altogether. The few programs I watch that are not on the air, I am willing to subscribe to, because the money saved by dropping CC xcetera outweighs the cost. It would cost me less than wasting money on Comcast only to have services cut without notice. What we were getting as part of our subscription last month has been taken from us, and we are not getting it any more. A search of the web does not yield a useful answer. It is as if the whole world has gone mad.
At any rate, if Good Fight isn't on air, screw it. I'm not going to waste any more of my time on it.
Comcast or Xfinity or whatever you call yourselves is not serving the needs of its users. Cutting off this service is tantamount to a backdoor price increase.
IF CBS IS TO BLAME, you ought to tell your subscribers that. If Comcast eccetera is to blame, shame on you and I'm not going to stay with you for very much longer.
