On my answering maching this week, somebody keeps calling and playing a message that alternates between Muzak and a voice saying "please continue to hold." After a minute of this, a real person starts saying "Hello, is anyone there" and then hangs up. It's happened 3 times this week at around 9:30 AM. Any idea who it is?

Also, I sometimes get messages that are two quick beeps and that's it. This morning it happened 5 times across a half an hour. What is that? I think I got this a year ago but then it stopped.

I'm already on the do not call list.

Oh my dayz! I get them too! I get them from a 602 number. The previous person who had my phone was some ghetto chick and I'm getting all her ghetto calls and collection agency calls. I've been telling her friends/lovers to tell her to pay her bills "yo!".

I keep getting the "please hold" calls and I'm on the do not call list but I still get them. I get them almost every morning. It's so annoying. I'm trying to work out how to block phone numbers on my Nokia Astound. I keep getting lots of text messages too for all those sh*tty top 40 clubs in Hollywood. HATE IT!

Good Post!

They're probing you. It could be worse...

Who or what is probing us?

I forgot to mention, I don't have caller ID.
Perhaps someone could Google the numbers that are doing this.

Why can't you google them yourself?

I already googled them as soon as they happened and they seem to be calling quite a lot of people.
