I recently switched phones and as a result, plans and underlying cell network from Republic 2.0 Moto X to Republic 3.0 Moto G4 (now GSM). So I’m betting that my underlying number got changed on the cell side to something else. Since that time there has been a dramatic increase in spam calls I can’t control. Specifically:
- Direct to voicemal callers who are not in my contact list. Phone doesn’t ring, no evidence of the call in the call logs, just a voicemail is received. This is worse than under the 2.0 plan where I at least had the log and could intercept some of these spammers before they left an annoying voicemail.
- Calls coming in on the cell network when the phone is clearly on the wi-fi network. Is there any way to just prevent the spammers from calling the underlying cell phone number directly?
I do have the “Block spam calls & voicemails” option selected in the republic app, something ironically I didn’t have when I was on the old plan.
Any suggestions? Can I request a change to the underlying phone number on the cell side?
