We all get them, annoying spam calls. But do you know what their newest trick is? You’ve missed a phone call from an unknown yet ‘safe looking number’. You call it back, and they ding you through the nose in charges.
Well NOW WHAT SARAH!!! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MAKE SURE I DON’T MISS IMPORTANT PHONE CALLS?!!?!
First off, your clientele, friends, family and anyone else who REALLY wants to get a hold of you will get a hold of you, and will more then likely leave a message or follow up with a text. So, you might be one of those people who already ignores all unknown numbers
Now you might say, ‘Well what if my voicemail is full Sarah?? I have kids, they could be calling from an unknown number, and they could be in trouble!! What NOW?’ Well, never fear, as I have pondered, researched and found a solution!!! Introducing PopTox! The online internet service which ONLY requests your microphone, not your video feed like Skype, and doesn’t charge you to make phone calls to landlines. I was able to call a states-side number with my computer, verify it was spam, and mark it on the appropriate sites.
Lastly, once you’ve successfully identified a spam number, BLOCK IT!!! This cute little function became mainstream in phones about 6 years ago and has saved my sanity more times then I can count! I do know older I-phones and androids did not have this function, also is not available to my knowledge in ‘Brick’ Phones, but remember, you can always call your provider and ask that this number be blocked.
