Do I have to cancel ting service to escape having to pay for incoming spam?
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.
