A couple of days ago I noted that simultaneous ring was now available in settings. So, I entered the number for my cell phone and nomorobo. Since then, I noticed that most of the junk calls are getting through. I looked the numbers up in a browser and found nomorobo recognized several numbers as spamsters. I also noted that my cellphone did not get the calls either. Since nomorobo has worked on several and my cell was not getting all the calls, it appears that it is simultaneous ring is working sporadically. Is anyone else having this problem?
An IP-based service works sporadically? That doesn't sound right. Whenever I do a speed test or play an online game, I consistently get optimum reliability. I'm being sarcastic. Nomo is an IP-based service and subject to packet loss in or outside the Cox network
I think you missed the point Bruce, it is not Nomorobo. It appears to be the simultaneous ring that is not working since my cell phone is not getting the ring on those occasions..
I used "Nomo" as a general term for the call-blocking process: voice gateway, VoIP, SimRing, robocaller database, subscriber-reporting, intercept signals, etc). It involves 2 IP-networks (Cox and Nomo) and with your cell phone, it's 3 different networks.
Since it sporadically works, it sometimes works so you've correctly configured it. It could be SimRing failing but it could also be lost packets and certain endpoints (cell, Nomo, Cox gateway) configured to not recover any lost packets. There are lots of factors to consider with SimRing being only one.
Those of us that know anything about the Internet know packets do get lost here and there, but not half of the time. If a packet gets lost between cox & nomo, it does not mean it should get lost between cox & at&t. Just want people to know that in my case, it is cox's simultaneous ring that has a problem, not nomorobo.

Maybe Sim. ring is only designed to forward to one number, and not multiple numbers like your trying to do? Have you tried removing your cell phone?
