  • Hey John, 

    Spam calls are a fact of life right now, as it seems like the FCC doesn't want to do anything about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FO0iG_P0P6M

    We recommend apps to block the spam as best as they're able: https://ting.com/blog/hiya-no-spam-callers-phishing-scams/

    You should also reach out to the FCC and make sure you know they should act: https://www.fcc.gov/about/contact

    If spam calls and texts are kicking you into buckets you wouldn't otherwise be in on Ting, reach out to us at ting.com/support (we're facing 10 times our normal volume, so thank you for being patient!) and we'll look into it.

  • remember my old comcast line received about 20 calls a day. only have one scumbag company calling since i switched last month. if it gets that bad eventually on ting i'd just request a number change. alot easier too inform my tiny contact list of a new number than to have to delete dozens of VMs everyday. i think t-mobile maybe more active in cutting pollution than sprint as well.

  • Both companies have introduced different filtering methods, but as we've discussed on these forums before, it's usually REALLY hard to block these calls because of how the scammers route them.
