RE: I keep getting random phone calls that go to voicemail?
So I’m pretty used to getting calls from telemarketers or whatever, but lately I’ve been getting like 10-15 calls a day, none of which I can actually answer. I just see the icon that says “missed call”, sometimes with 3-5 calls from the same number. They never happen when I’m actively using my phone. If I try to call the number back I just get like a beeping tone. When other people who are in my contacts call me it rings just fine. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can stop it?
Having a call go directly to voice mail without ringing is a relatively new development in the tactics of scammers and telemarketers.
I don’t know if there is any way to stop that.
You can try adding the numbers to your phone’s block list. That may or may not work, though.
Unfortunately, until the phone companies make a <<real>> effort at stopping those kinds of calls, we will have to endure them in some form.
