- How it Works with Your Existing Features
With Nomorobo, you can block unwanted calls from telemarketers and robo-callers. This feature uses a list of phone numbers from the FCC Do Not Call list to block suspected calls.
- Go to the Nomorobo website and follow the directions to sign up.
- Sign in to Spectrum.net and go to your Voice Online Manager to activate the Simultaneous Ring feature.
The Nomorobo feature is available for all Spectrum Voice customers who have been upgraded to our enhanced service. You'll know if you have been upgraded if you have access to the Simultaneous Ring and Backup Phone features on your Voice Online Manager.
This feature will screen all incoming calls. If Nomorobo determines that the call is from a blacklisted number, it will block it. In this case, you'll hear a single ring. The number will show up on your caller ID on your handset and television, if applicable.
