Does Nomorobo really ring your phone once to alert you to what should have been a blocked call?
I am hoping that I am wrong about the single-ring "alert." I sometimes get 10 or 15 junk calls per day, and having each and every one ring my phone a single time would be a continued annoyance. If it...
Hi John_SD, Nomorobo disconnects "robocaller" and telemarketer calls made to your home phone number. After activating the Nomorobo number and selecting it as a Simultaneous Ring number, Nomorobo screens the call to make sure it is valid. You can continue to use your phone as normal after the service is enabled. If a robocall is blocked, then your phone rings once. Callers hear a pre-recorded message advising them that Nomorobo has blocked the call before they are disconnected. If a call is valid, then Nomorobo does not intercept it. -Kevin M.

yeah i am having the same problem . I get calls all hours from either telemarketers or scammers. Why would we want our cell phone to ring even if it is only once. I'll get 7-10 calls a day sometimes. That is just as aggravating as the calls them selves? Why does norobo work ONLY if you provide another phone number like a cell? Flawed system. Yes the numbers should be blocked but we shouldn't have to have a different phone ring!
With Nomorobo enabled on a landline your phone will always ring once. There's no way to eliminate the first ring. The server needs that time to screen the call and determine if it should intercept the call or not.
Right but my problem is that it is also ringing my cell phone and it continue to ring repeatedly. So; it seems that norobo is not working. My settings say that the land line is setup for norobo by default but, unless i have the cell number listed as-well then norobo will not save my settings and remains turned OFF. Also when i do add my cell number both land & Cell phones continue to ring repeatedly, and not just once, until the call ends.
Nomorobo is a third-party service available to Cox Voice customers, disconnecting robocaller and telemarketer calls made to a customer’s home phone number. I would recommend referring to the Nomorobo Helpdesk at www.nomorobo.zendesk.com for mobile support.
