    Ah yes, you have won millions but need to wire some money to Jamaica before you can receive your prize.

    I have 3 numbers - 2 cell phones, and a Google Voice number that does not ring on any phone. The GV number gets plenty of calls, they never leave a message. Keep on calling, no one will ever answer!!

    My very basic smart phone only rings 4 times before going to voicemail, and I can never get to it in time. There is no way to program it to ring more times. So I wind up calling back whoever called, if I know them. I don't get very many junk calls, not sure why.

    I'm getting calls from people who say I called them from my number. I didn't. Why would anyone call back a number not recognized in the first place? A live person will at least leave a voice message. It amazes me how many try to break their necks trying to answer their phone. If I'm busy or occupied I let it ring. Doesn't bother me at all.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    OMG. I used your suggestion about "do not disturb" on my iPhone and it is wonderful. Now, any unknown phone calls go straight to voicemail. I tried it out by deleting my DH from my contact list and calling me on his phone. it works like a charm. Love it. Thanks so much
