Calls I'm not making to toll free numbers

Post by citizenwalt » Sun May 31, 2009 11:25 am

Why are there calls from my phone to toll free numbers connecting to what sounds like a fax machine (high pitched whistle)? Several of these call are being make all day long and last for only a few seconds. The numbers are (866) 709-2073 - (866) 685-8469 and (800) 531-5602. No one here is making these calls but they show up in the outgoing calls list.

Looks like it may be your direct TV or TIVO.

Google is your friend...

All three numbers are used by DirecTV receivers to "phone home" to DirecTV.

Yeah, those are your DirecTV receivers calling in to DirecTV.
See this post here about configuring the HD DVR to work better with Ooma.

I blocked that # so now I`m not sure if it is going out , It shows the red O everytime on the call log.

I bet you have older DirecTv receivers. If you upgrade to the new Genie receivers, the issue is resolved. No more calling every 1.5 hours or so.
