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.

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.
Bruce: "I thought the point was to stop ringing my phone..."
I did too.
I receive 6-8 spoofed calls a day. Today is Monday 12-6-21, I have already received 2 spoofed calls by by 7:04AM. The numbers are 323 430-6398 at 6:01 AM and 606 2838485 at 7:04 AM. I will also provide you with the numbers of 469 other blocked spoofed calls on my Panasonic call blocking machine.
Please contact me today my lCox landline is worthless to reciving important calls.
EDIT: Just received my third spoof call at 7:59 AM from 931 810-8215. THREE SPOOFED calls today by 8:00 AM is that enough proof for you?
"...which will indicate that the Caller ID is accurate or valid..."If you can't verify or validate a number, why is the number ringing our phones and leaving messages? You're so wrapped up in industry, regulatory and legislative nonsense; you plainly don't understand the problem.
"...to identify spoofed calls..."How are you identifying spoofed calls? I don't know if a number is spoofed or not; however, I am receiving calls with the NUMBER in the NAME field of the Caller ID. The Name Field just a string of 10 digits. What provider would put the number in the Name Field? Probably none...so I'll presume it's a spoof. Unless Cox is putting the number in the Name Field to inform me it's a spoof. I don't know. Between spoofs and Cox mysteriously identifying spoofs is still confusing.
"...to identify and shut down illegal robocallers..."Only on your network. Cox can only shutdown robocalls on their network. Aren't there other networks out there...other providers...private exchanges? Cox monitors, blocks, implements, identifies, participates, shuts down, prosecutes...but yet, the problem persists.
Here's the problem.- When a telephone rings, it's an audio indication.- Bad actors abuse our audio indication.- Bad actors abusing our audio indication annoy us.- Cox providing a "visual indication" of an abused audio indications still annoys us.
