Default Are you getting cell phone calls from John from...............

....political opinions of America? Annoying. Area codes 843 and 503. Being on the Do Not Call list does not help. I no longer answer these calls but still annoying as they call once or twice/day.

MODS: This is not a political post so please do not throw the thread into the bilge.

the Do Not Call list is no longer effective now that the caller can spoof the number that appears on the caller ID. Except for calls from numbers that I definitely know, I'm at the point where I just don't answer my phone anymore.

Do Not Call does not apply to political "polls." The politicians made sure they were excluded when they passed the law. What else is new? An unpublished number works best, IMO.

I even get them on my cell phone, which really pisses me off because I have potential new clients calling so I have to answer calls but am using minutes or paying for them to call me with that shit

Thats funny, I make a habit of not answering numbers from people I have not spoken to before.

I received several missed calls on my cell phone from the 503 area code each day.

I have an unpublished cell # and get those calls too. Also calls to lower my credit card debt despite the fact I have no credit card debt. I too stopped answering calls from #'s I don't recognize and I turned off my voice mail too. I'm about ready to throw the cellphone in the drink. LOL

My phone is on silent unless I'm traveling or when my GF is out of the house. I only answer the phone for people in my contact list or a number I recognize. I haven't gotten a survey or sales call in years. I also don't return a missed call unless there's a voicemail.
