My cell phone (yes, I now have a cell phone) is with Sprint. A week ago I started to get a phone call, every day around the same time from 866-463-3020. I would hit ignore, but after it went on for a week I was getting annoyed. So I typed the number into Google and discovered this great web site WhoCalledUs.
People post comments about the calls. I learned that it was a sales call from Sprint/Nextel. I also learned how to block calls! The site said:
- to block incoming cell calls do this: send text message.
- in the TO: (type the number or email address you want blocked)
- in the Message: type the letter b then a space then the number or text address you want blocked (example) b 8885551212
- then send. your phone should you verification that you want to block. click yes. Number is now blocked.
I've written a complaint to Sprint/Nextel public affairs and encourage anyone who reads this to do the same. Her reply was.
"Thank you for your message. The 800 number you referenced is a number that Sprint had been using for some outreach to customers and we are eliminating the number in the course of improving our processes. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your input.

So I sent Ms. Walsh an email expressing my displeasure. I got an auto response she is out of the office but to call her PCS... it's tempting, to bug her on her Labor Day holiday. If I block the second number and still get phone calls then I'll do.
