    Incoming call numbers

    Hey all,
    I was wondering if you can change the setting to where if you receive a call from somebody it displays their phone number and not "unknown number"?

    answer it and if you don't want to talk or a salesperson etc... hang up.... really really fast! :lmao: JK But there wont be a way, so people have this set and I have gotten some that turned out to be frauds. I just ignore them anymore, if its important they will leave me a voicemail with a number. If not, wait til the next call

    Well depends how you look at it.....When unknown # pops up...you could always feel the call by answering with something like Player's pool hall or Player's funeral home....Lol

    Welcome to BBOS Player.

    When someone with an unknown number calls me I just blow a whistle real loud into the phone. I generally don't hear from them anymore. That's how I got rid of that Stiefler problem.
