Cell phone junk calls

Has anyone else besides me been experiencing large volumes of junk calls on their cell phone? We had our home phone disconnected for this same reason a few years ago.

In one day, I might have 10 calls from different states I never answer them because I do not know people in these states. I am really getting tired of it.

I am on every do not call list out there. Does anyone have any ideas how to get these to stop other than to have my number changed?

  2. I have similar situation but not as 10 calls in a day. I simply ignore them and they appear to go away on their own.. However, they are quite persistent before they stop in my case.

  3. Every time there is a sales call (not a charity or political) I report it on the national do not call list. You can’t stop the charity and political calls. Anyway, every time I get a call I report it and after a few calls/reports magically they all stop for several months. Start back up i start reporting them again.

      • Yes, if you are registered people are not allowed to call you. The government will fine them for making calls to the no call list. Most of the calls come from a handful of huge call centers around the country, not from the individual companies, so if they get fined when they call you, they’ll stop calling.

      • I’ve only done it a couple of times. One time I was getting the same call every day, three or four times a day. I would tell the person over and over not to call any more. After a week I put in a complaint and the calls stopped almost instantly.

  4. In Canada we have a “do not call” registry. I have added my cell number to it and have inly received a few calls so far. I do not answer calls from numbers I don’t recognize. I totally agree it is dreadfully annoying. Good luck.

  5. Not fun. I’ve noticed more unknown calls from out of state, too. I just let them go to voicemail. No message, no worry! If I happen to accidentally answer one, I politely ask them to remove my number from any of their call lists and DO NOT CALL. I put our numbers on all the do not call lists, too. Seems to be a waste of time and I have no answers on how to get rid of them.
