    Here's the info on the area code for the call you got:

    269 MI -5 SW Michigan: Kalamazoo, Saugatuck, Hastings, Battle Creek, Sturgis to Lake Michigan (split from 616)

    Wonder what happens if you call back that number...hmmmm....

    If I want to upgrade or remove, I use the web-site or call them

    I never do anything off someone calling me. Ever

    This is another reason I love VoIP, I can block any number I want. Comes in real handy during election season when all those calls from Iowa start rolling in

    Not necessarily.... Caller ID "spoofing" is all the rage.

    Bad Dudes (tm) out there can "fake" a DirecTV number on your Caller ID unit very easily ...

    it sucks!

    I did the ultimate call block, dropped our home phone, and my wife and I using unlisted corporate cell's for home calls.

    Robo dialers can't distinguish between listed/unlisted, cell/landline. They just call numbers in sequence. It's why in offices you will often see everyone in the office getting the same robo call one after another.

    This probably won't work for you, but I have had some success preventing multiple calls from the same incoming number:

    1. Answer the call and press whatever button combination allows you to speak to an actual person

    2. Inform them that they are in violation of both state and federal law because my number is on both the state and federal do not call list

    3. Tell them that the next time I receive a call from them, they will be hearing from my attorney
