I never answer if I do not recognize the caller I.D.. If I hit the "ignore" button on my mobile phone, it goes to my voice mail. So does that generate more telemarketing and spam calls?
@Kisa Another option is to go through your call history and mark the call as spam and permanently blocking that number from calling you.
I definitely need to add that “do not respond to numbers I don’t recognize “ comment to my voicemail announcement!
I could never understand why the CRTC/FCC allowed pbx's the ability to generate their own Call Display info rather than the Telco generating it either as the exact number of the trunk/line calling you or an agreed contact number for the company/organization calling you. Thus you should be able to call back any business calling you and expect a person to answer.
I answer virtually no calls where I don't recognize the Call Display info.
