A buddy says he gets lots of calls from solicitors on his pay-as-you-go Tracfone. Is he pulling my leg? I thought this only happened on land lines.

His number is on a list somewhere. I had that happen with an old cell number of mine. Ultimately the only way to stop it was to change my number.....

You can stop it a few different ways, Don't answer any call which are not in your list or with no ID. Enter the number in your list, tag it as BS and assign it a silent ringtone. Or answer it, and threaten to rip their head off and sh*t down their neck! ( It might make you feel better!)
