I've been getting calls on my cell phone from someone whose number is unavailable. In other words, they have blocked their number from being
What I get if I answer the phone is a recording saying there is an important message for me and to hold on the line. I did wait once and what I got
was another recording saying all representatives are busy and to keep holding. I didn't keep holding because I'm on a prepaid phone and whatever air
time I use comes off of my account balance. I know they are some kind of telemarketer. They call 3, 4, or 5 times a day and have been doing this for
the past three weeks or so.
There isn't an option on my phone to block individual calls. I have a setting that only allows numbers that are on my contacts list, but that isn't
good because I occasionally get calls from other people that I need to talk to. My phone has been registered on the do not call list for several
years. I have a Google number that rings my cell phone, but it's not the Google number they're calling because it would show up on my home phone
also. My carrier is US Cellular and there doesn't seem to be anything they can do about it.
What I would like to know is if anyone else here has been getting these calls, if anyone has any information on these people and any advice on what I
might be able to do about it. Hopefully someone here can help me out with this because these calls are really starting to get to me.
Thank you in advance for any and all replies.
