Yes. Save the number to your contacts, label it "scammer" scroll down to "block number" and tap it.
These A holes call several times a week. I answer the phone upstairs where I don't have caller ID and no one is ever on the line. I am on the Do Not Call List but frankly I do not think the govt enforces infractions because of pressure from the Tea Party against any sort of regulations. I'm serious. If the Tea Party had it's way, we would be bombarded with telemarketing calls because "it's freedom of speech" and it's a form of the free enterprise system. I blame the Tea Party for this country going to hell in a hand basket the past several years, NOT Obama. Idiots like Sarah Palin are ruining this country. They call themselves "patriots" but what kind of patriot is it who wants to take down the federal government? Oh, but they want to be able to police what goes on in our bedrooms. Shameful.
>>> Rather than go forward, I pressed "2" to be deleted from their calling list. I am receiving more and more calls on my cell number -- robo-calls, humans wanting to take surveys, solicit business, etc. <<<
THERE'S your problem. Why did you (1) return a call to a number you didn't know and that didn't leave a message, and (2) why did you press ANYTHING when you called back?
Doing EITHER of these things merely confirms your number is active and can be called by scammers. So, it is now being sold in lists of possible "marks" to illegal callers who IGNORE the Do Not Call list or who are outside the jurisdiction of the United States.
You imply that you are a teacher, but you sure don't seem to have much in the way of common sense or street smarts in your repertoire.
You don't get charged if you don't answer. So, if you're getting charged each time stop answering the phone. I have a 'contact' that is called "Spammer" and numbers like this get put on the list. That way when they call my display says 'Spammer' and I don't answer...and I don't get charged.
called my cell phone 12-13-13 rang once and no message
Received call on my cell. Said it was from Alabama. Did not answer.
I received a missed call and returned it in the event it was one of my students. However as experienced by others, I reached a recording from "Julie at Reward Depot," claiming I was receiving a $100 gift card because I had recently visited one of their sponsor sites. Rather than go forward, I pressed "2" to be deleted from their calling list. I am receiving more and more calls on my cell number -- robo-calls, humans wanting to take surveys, solicit business, etc. What's the use of a "Do Not Call" Registry if it can't eliminate/control these calls?
When i get these calls i never hang up - i let their messages play to the end - it ties up their dialer so they can't call anyone else for a short time. Some days i just don't have much to do.
1/2 ring keeps them from being charged (you didn't pick up) and then you call them back on YOUR dime to find out what the call was about. Scummy as they come.
Just got a call from 205-406-8371. No message. Obviously the "Do Not Call" list does not work, so it's just another number I'll add to my Block Calls From list. Life in the 21st Century!
8:47pm Mountain Time. Almost a full ring. Googled the number and found this place - not going to bother to call them back.
Rang once Hung up, Funny I ordered Parts from sears yesterday and the girld said she was in Southern ALabama, This number is from Alabaster Al. hmmmm
Same hang up call. I just made my first order on Amazon yesterday, could be related?
called my cell and hung up,without leaving message. I'm on a no call list with my cell phone.
Got a call from this number and after one ring they hung up.
I'm frustrated w this damn number is the 4th time.
Same thing happened to me.
Unhappy with unwanted call
Unidentified caller on my cell phone. I do not know who the caller is/was. I am on DO-NOT-CALL list.

Called my cell and hung up. 10/23/2013 1212 CDT
They think they can get away with this by changing the number they are calling from, I will block my phone and call them many times again. this is the same caller as 207-249-6131, I'm on the Do not call list, I'm really pissed.
called on my cell, I do not give that number out. Where did they get it? Telemarketer Alabaster AL. Person could hardly speak English. Told them not to ever call me again as I don't understand them and do NOT want these calls. Answered the first time they called. Will never pick up for this number again. Scam. Idiot. Annoyance.
I WON !!! Should I give my credit card info for the processing fee? LOL - phishing for suckers :)
used to get these annoying calls months ago. now they started again. when I called back, they were speaking Spanish. looked up number and found it was a landline in Alabaster, AL. Located just East of 44 between 1st St NW/NE and 1st St N (119). Still trying to figure out which business it's coming from. thinking of emailing ICG Telecom Group where the caller supposedly is hooked up with to get this stopped!
keep getting calls from this number on my cell and I am listed on the do not call list. they call at all hours and is getting old.
Don't Cale mee
Just got a call from these ***holes...and I have added them to my personal do not call list. They can't get in touch with me now MWAHAHAHA.
YOUMAIL.COM lets you install an app to block these robos.
you can even leave a nice message for them as well!
Cell phone rang 1.5 times. I did not answer because I live in CA and the caller ID said AL. Most likely scam/telem.
