They haven't complied with the full intent of stopping robocall calls with spoofed numbers. To do so they need to verify the incoming call is not a spoofed number,and stop it from ringing through. They have failed to do this.
I have nomorerobo,I pay extra for my 30 blocked number feature,I am on the National do not call registry, I have a $100 Panasonic call blocking device,
Cox has the resources to stop this, and their alleged "compliance" results in my getting 6-8 spoofed robocalls a day, 7 days a week for the last 18 months.
There are 3 ways to "verify" the numbers. One is to fully verify from where the call came and another to partially verify from where the call came. There's a third but I forget its adjective.
I'm getting calls from fully verified...[V]...and the numbers are legit, but I'm also getting calls without any prefix. Calls without prefixes are just ringing my phone. I also don't understand the point if spoofs are still ringing me. It's another Do Not Call Registry flop.
There is no adjective for the third verification, so I made up "regional" for Area Code.
Full: Cox verified the 10-digit number is registered with the originating provider.
Partial: Cox verified all but the last 4 digits with the originating provider. For example, a company has a private PBX so the last 4 digits wouldn't be registered with the originating provider.
Regional: Cox verified the first 3 digits came from a known gateway of another provider.

Actually it's a Cox failure to FULLY implement spoof calls.
At least get Cox users to complain to their license holder (the FCC).
Cox is implementing it. I'm getting Fully Verified calls....prefixed with [V]...but also calls from numbers without a prefix. Perhaps Cox doesn't prefix Partial and "Regional" calls but it doesn't mean Cox hasn't verified a portion of the numbers as per the FCC.
In my opinion, a prefix is useless. What's the difference between looking at Caller ID to check for a "V" or just recognizing a telephone number on the Caller ID? I don't care if it has a "V" or not...I don't recognize the number.
I thought the point was to stop ringing my phone.

I did too.
