IMPORTANT: If you are NOT receiving calls and phone does not ring AND/OR only getting our recording in Voicemail then do the following:
- Make sure that the Site Caller ID is added as a “Contact” on your phone!
- Make sure that all SPAM/Blocking App’s on your phones are not blocking the above Caller ID OR you may want to completely turn off the App.
- Call your Phone Provider and asked them to ADD the Site Caller ID to a safe list of callers that may call you and make sure the carrier themselves are not blocking the Caller ID.
Please see below on what to try and do based on phone provider.
T-Mobile / SPRINT and MetroPCS customers can check whether Scam Block is on or off on their phones by dialing #787# and pressing the call button.
** To DISABLE Scam Block you should dial #662# and pressing the call button.
