While Nomorobo has been great, it seems that robocallers have found a way to beat it. Twice this week, I have received 2 simultaneous dial attempts from a known robocaller (2 different numbers). Nomorobo zaps one, but the other one continues to ring through as a normal call would. Also has the same V(letters and numbers) on the name line of the Caller ID. So here we are promised a solution, and already the lowlife scum is beating it. Something has to be done to block multiple simultaneous dial attempts by known scammers
Do you know of a solution any other provider is using?
Nomo is a design flaw. Cox can't have 2 parallel (simultaneous) circuits for the call. There must be 1 circuit for the call: from Cox to Nomo then to your house. Nomo would need to set in the middle and be an in-line call-screening service.
To fix the current design during a call, Nomo would have to send a signal back to the Cox exchange to open the circuit (busy signal) while it screens the first call. After Nomo decides what to do (block or forward), send a second signal to close the circuit. Your phone can't wait for Nomo to decide while still connected to an active circuit.
Or, if you subscribe to Nomo, Cox can just keep the circuit open until it receives the go/no-go from Nomo. That way, Nomo could just send one signal instead of two.
