Both robo and telemarketing calls can be stopped
These types of calls can be stopped by a simple modification of an
old device called an answering machine. The modified answering machine would answer the call immediately and
not ring the phone. A verbal message would request that the caller enter a 4 digit number to have the phone ring. If no
number is entered or is incorrect the caller would be sent
to voice mail. I can not submit this to the challenge because
it violates the rules. The device I am describing is patented.
Mobile phones could be implement this approach without
hardware, but using software to prior to making the connection.
But there are two problems.
1). At&T owns the patent on the modified answering machine. They will not allow production since it would cut their income
from these robo and telemarketing calls.
2) Mobile carriers will not implement the software because
they would also see a reduction of income from these types of
Looks like the challenge is another smoke screen just like the
do not call list.
