I posted this a couple days ago to Facebook, but not everyone reads Facebook (which I totally get). So I’m finally posting this here. Jolly Roger Telephone was mentioned in a New York Times article about robocalls to mobile phones. I was mentioned alongside some big players in the industry, so I’m totally blown away. I’m gaining street cred! Someday I hope to get the attention of Apple, Google, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint because I really want to be able to protect mobile phones! Mobile carriers still do not offer this feature. Some clever (and well-financed) app developers have done some crazy workarounds to block your telemarketers, but none are redirecting calls yet. All it takes is “simultaneous ring” from mobiles and I can do it! Anyone know anyone who knows anyone at any of the mobile carriers?
Anyway, the NY Times article is here: https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/05/11/smarter-living/stop-robocalls.html
There were some re-prints in other places, but then here’s an original story on Q13 Fox in Washington! http://q13fox.com/2017/05/11/robocalls-are-increasing-so-here-is-how-you-fight-back/
Anyway – thanks everyone for your support, interest, and kind words!
