I’m Tired of Robocalls #3


AT&T is sending notices to customers in-boxes stating that if they do not hear from them by November 15th their bill will go paperless (see below):

ATT Paperless

You can believe that I clicked on the link and told them to send me a paper bill (even though I pay all bills online and trash the paper bills).

Why?

Until they sink money into the destruction of Robocalls rather into their own pockets I see no reason why we should assist them in earning more profits.  Paperless bills will add millions to their bottom line and do little to stop the robocalls.

I hope you feel the same way,

Jerry Nix

    We switched to Consumer Cellular, the same service at half the cost! They use AT&T and Verizon towers so you still get the same cell service. As for robo calls, I just don’t answer if I don’t recognize the number, then I block the numbers. If it’s legitimate, they’ll leave a message. It is an inconvenience, but we have no choice, it’s the world in which we live nowadays.

    1. Mary … I agree … it is the world in which we live but something must be done about it or there will soon be no need to even carry a cell phone (hey that is not a bad idea — LOL). Believe me there is a way for phone companies to stop this from a technology point of view … it would just cost them some of their profits. However, you and I both know I can do all the ranting I want to and this war on cybercrime and robocalls is going to end up like the war on poverty and the war on drugs … it will just make the enemy stronger … because many in our government draw red lines and keep moving them. Oh well, thanks for reading anyhow. Jerry Nix

    So, what if the attempt to go paperless is a way for them to be able to invest more into the fight against robocalls?

    I get them a lot on my Verizon services as well. Both personal and work cells. But, thanks to the new Google Assistant screening feature on the Pixel 3s, I no longer need to worry about those calls. 😋. Soon to release on Google Pixel 2s I heard as well.

  3. People have been going paperless for years and it just gets added to the phone company’s bottom line – which from a stock investors point of view is good – but from a stoppage point of view is of no help. Believe me … the phone companies are making money on robo calls or they would stop them.

      Oh, I agree that phone companies are making money on the robocalls. I’m sure they’re the ones that sell the list of numbers to them. In fact, I didn’t get “one” robocall until the day AFTER I left AT&T and switched to Verizon. Now, I get them all day every day…
