Please help. My Nomorobo is set up and verified by Nomorobo. Everything is in order. They have called to day it is enabled. But it is NOT working. Cox refuses all responsibility/. I have to contact Nomorobo. I have done that 3 times. They say they will get back to me. They havent. Everything is done correctly and that is verified by both Cox and Nomorobo. I am getting all my calls....10 just today. I am at my wit’s end. Please help.
Is your number listed as Protected on your Nomo account page?
I read the setup instructions and it's kinda vague how to initiate the Protected status. It's step 7. The previous step (6) instructed to test your phone from your Nomo account page...which you successfully did...but to let your phone ring 3 times.
"You will immediately receive a call letting you know if everything is setup correctly. Please pick up the phone after the third ring."
I wonder why it's 3 rings? Did you wait for 3 rings? Then in Step-7, it reads (after waiting 3 rings), "Your number will now be listed as Protected."
Also, on your Nomo account page, is there an option to enable or disable Nomo? That seems like an essential feature if you're waiting for a critical call from an unknown number and you don't want Nomo tinkering with anything.
Is there any reason for me to keep Nomo on my computer if it isn't working? I don't know that I want the phone numbers of everyone who calls me listed there. They are treating this as an active account with all calls being blocked. The fact is no calls are being blocked so I'm wondering if it is better to just get rid of it. I would wait a week or so to see if they ever respond to any of my messages, but, after that, should I keep it or dump it?

Hmm? You were initially setting up Nomo in your Cox Phone Tools, mistakenly entered your Cox-assigned telephone number...and it responded with the number is already protected? That doesn't make sense.
...or did you enter it on Nomo and it said it's already protected. That wouldn't make sense either. How long have you had this number? Is it new? Perhaps someone already registered it with Nomo. Interesting.
I've had this number fof 35 years!
Oh. Did the Cox web page reveal anything?
Now it's really screwed up. Every page I go to says i have to log in. When I log in with the password they say it is incorrect. Everything now is blank....I can't get to my calls or the page where you fix your settings or anything. I have to sign in and they won't accept my password or name.
I tried Becky's link and it took me to idm.east.cox.net. I don't know which link is better but I've always used cox.com for phone tools.
Okay, I read your next post. You can't logon to your Nomo account. Is there an option for I Forgot My Password?
They could have some maintenance happening. Check tomorrow.
Yes there is an optiion for I forgot my password. I was afraid to try that because they will make me change my password and that will foul up everything. All Robo pages are blank and say I have to log in, Cox pages let me in. When I log into Cox it's fine. When I log into Robo they say there is no such password. When I thought I might start over and sign up again, they tell me my account is already activated, but won't take the password.
It may still have a session with you. Close your browser, delete your cookies and if you have a cleanup utility run it. Just deleting your cookies should suffice.
I had to reset my password on the Robo pages. I used the same password I used before (the one they said was incorrect)and they accepted it. I can now get on the Robo pages. I confirmed that it was enabled after all of that Yes, it is But, it is still not blocking calls. I'm giving up. Thanks so much, Bruce, for your help. I think I'd just as soon have robo calls as deal with Nomorobo!
Lily, thanks for your explanation. It is a good warning about rushing to implement Nomorobo. Either we need to wait until the kinks are fixed or we need to avoid it completely. Especially since we are receiving stories that the telemarketers have learned to fool Nomorobo.
