How to stop ringless voicemail?
If you are being bombarded by marketing messages, then it is good to know how to block ringless voicemail. Preventing robocallers from leaving a voicemail can be tough, but there are a few options.
There are a number of spam blockers that can be downloaded from the Play Store. The biggest problem with these spam blockers is that there is no way to automatically backup your blacklist. If you lose your phone and you haven’t backed up the list in a while (or ever), you will have to start building your blocked list from scratch.
Instead of building your list inside of the ad blocker itself, build it inside your contacts list. Create a contact called ‘blocked numbers’ and continue to add numbers to the list over time. This way, if you lose your phone or your phone breaks, you will still have a list on your sim card that can be used on your new phone or within a new ad blocker.
If you aren’t sure whether the call you received is spam or not, Google the number. Many times, you will find that the number has received a number of complaints. In this case, you can add it to your blocked list.
If you have an iPhone that runs on iOS 8 or higher, you can block it on your phone. Go the Recent Calls tab in the Phone app, tap the “i” icon at the right of the number that you want to block. If the number is in your Contacts list, open that contact’s page in the Contacts app. From the contact page for the caller or contact, scroll to the bottom of the page and tap Block This Caller.
If you have an Android phone, just tap a number in your call log and hit Block/report Spam.
