My Epson will only display caller ID for incoming faxes, but not for incoming voice calls (not sure why that is), so that's why I installed the TW app.
Because I've always got self-promos in circulation, I can't not answer calls on my phone from unfamiliar #s. It could be a prospective client calling. Besides, IMHO, it's faster and less hassle to answer an hang up if necessary than to wait for the VM notification, dial in, and listen to the message.
Every once in a while, I get a spat of those "_______ from member services" calls from fake numbers. I tried hanging up on them, filing FTC complaints, telling them to take my number off, and asking to speak to a supervisor. None of it worked.
So now I just try to waste as much of their time as I possibly can either pretending to have an impossible to determine (because I'm bad at it), or just completely incomprehensible accent and insist that I am interested in lowering my interest rates.
