In switching to Republic Wireless last month, I almost immediately began receiving telemarketing calls from one specific number, and sales texts for the first time since 2009. Mildly annoying the first time, unacceptable after about the third one.
I don’t know if it is related to switching my number to Republic, or all of the rental applications we have been filling out lately as we look to move.
Android operating system to the rescue.
In two clicks, I downloaded a Call Blocker and have installed it, adding that number to my blocked call list.
Sweet, quiet, bliss. And I’m still saving $100 per month on my phone bill.
