EDIT: I just discovered Republic Wireless’s “block spam calls and voicemail” option and I am trying that. I will report back. Thank you.
There is a particular phone number that calls me every hour of the day all day and leaves the same robot 45-second voicemail. I blocked the number but it keeps leaving voicemails, blowing up my phone all day. Is there really no way to block someone? Can someone explain why not? It seems like it ought to be a pretty basic function of a phone, along with, turn on, play music, make calls, block people, etc.
Supposedly there are 3rd-party apps that “actually” block people but I have tried a few and they did not work, and they also have ads in them. I am very perplexed by this situation. Not to sound like a ■■■■ or anything but can someone explain to me why I am in the wrong here? I legitimately find it extremely confusing why it is considered normal that there is no way to block someone from blowing up your phone all day. Am I really supposed to just change my number repeatedly and hope this stops happening?
I really appreciate anyone’s time and help and I really don’t want to sound like a ■■■■ as I am here asking for the help of this community but can someone explain to me the logic of why blocking a phone number is not an included feature of Republic Wireless’s phone service?
To anyone that might say: oh, well they are blocked. The blocking is working. Doing stuff with voicemail is some other issue. Look, they are blowing up my phone all day. All day long my phone is blowing up because of this person calling me. I do not think it is reasonable to consider this number “blocked” because it affects my phone all day long. Whenever I use my phone their number is all over the screen, new notifications happening all day. The number is not blocked.
