I had the number registered on the Federal Do Not Call list and rarely got a spam phone call.
I'm now getting several spam calls per day.
My question, is an ooma number somehow exempt from the Federal Do Not Call list?
If not, why all of a sudden am I getting these calls?

Also, my 2nd Ooma assigned number has not received any calls on it and I did not register that number with the Do Not Call list.
Originally, when we registered our phone numbers with donotcall.gov, the registration expired after 5 years and we had to re-register. There was a lapse of time between some registrations expiring, and the newer law that said registration shall never expire. Perhaps you lapsed during that time and the ooma purchase is coincidental?
My other thought is that donotcall.gov will remove numbers from its list that have been disconnected and are reassigned to new customers. Perhaps your old phone company sent the wrong code/message to donotcall.gov, and your number was removed from their registration list when you ported to ooma.
I filed a complaint for each of the phone calls.
Since Ooma logs the number, the date and time, it's easy.
I also added the numbers to my BlackList.
I'll see if I get more spam calls from other numbers.
It's possible that I was getting spam calls from these two numbers all along on my original landline, but since I didn't have a call log, I just didn't notice - they don't leave a message when they get the voicemail, they just disconnect.
I am going to update my DNC information right now! Good thinking Opal!
