We have started getting as many as 25 calls a day from “Microsoft” on our home phone. The caller ID shows up as our home phone number. What can we do to stop these calls. We are on the national no call list.

    Hello Mr. K,

     

    Activate Nomorobo, a free service from Spectrum for landlines that stops annoying telemarketers/robocalls from leaving messages after the first ring of the phone.  The system hangs up on them after the first ring, so that they can't leave a message and bother you anymore.  It's outstanding!

     

    To activate Nomorobo:

     

    1.) Go to "My Account" with the same log in information that you use at the forums.

    2.) Go to "Home Phone" (Spectrum Voice) Settings.

    3.) Find "Peace and Quiet" and move the "Nommorobo" selector to the "On" position."

    4.) Select "Yes" to "Answer Anywhere" and any prompts needed for actibation.

    5.) That's it!  Calls that are Robocalls and Spammers will no longer be able to leave messages after the first ring, sometimes it takes two rings, but never more than that.

    6.) If you have CATV from Spectrum, the numbers will still show on your TV Caller ID on TV list, if your box has that option turned on.   However, your phone Caller ID will drop the number, and you will not know that they called.

     

    Nomorobo will always allow calls from schools, hospitals, weather emergencies, and doctors offices.  Allow up to 12 hours to activate, even though it should start working right away.
