1 Ring Hang-up Calls

I am constantly (5 or more times a day) getting calls where it rings once and then nothing. The caller's number does not show up in the caller ID on my phone, but if I am watching TV I will see the number displayed on the TV screen for a moment.  Does anyone have an explanation for this?

  • Me too. Midwest City, OK. I subscribe to NOMOROBO  and understand that 1 ring means that NOMOROBO intercepted the call. But I have a number of daily calls that appear on Caller ID, usually as just a town name, that ring multiple times. When answered there is nobody there. I would estimate that one in ten calls answered is actually someone calling. I do wonder how many people call and have their call intercepted?
