Increase in Telemarketer calls

Post by aelder2259 » Wed Feb 17, 2010 10:05 am

I've had my Ooma since May 2009. When I set it up, I selected the Community Blacklist to be active. From then until about a week ago, I wasn't bother with any telemarketer phone calls. In the past week, I've been getting 2-3 of them per day and having to manually add them to my blacklist. Did Ooma stop updating the community blacklist? Something has definitely changed and it's becoming quite irritating!

Has anyone else experience an increase in unwanted calls?

I've had mine since May as well and rarely if ever get telemarketer calls. Have you registered your phone with the national do not call registry https://www.donotcall.gov/?

The very first call I received on my Ooma about 24 hours after activating it was from the San Jose Mercury News soliciting for a subscription. I told them I was actually 2500 miles across the Pacific which confused them. I had taken a 650 area code because my area code is not available without and additional fee for some reason.
