FYI, If you're talking about switching back to Rogers Legacy Digital Cable, it's highly unlikely that Rogers will let you. Switching to IgniteTV is usually a one-way street. Everyone is being migrated to IgniteTV.

Well, it does and it doesn't.
Today's technology allows you to have a wireless phone at your elbow in your favorite viewing spot... and so you can easily pick it up and look at the call-display on the phone.
You can even have the phone announce the caller in voice.
The "necessity" of call-display on the TV is much diminished as there are other ways to accomplish the same goal... which is to see (or hear) the number without having to get up.
Rogers, the supposedly high tech company, is unwilling or unable to detect the difference between the originating number and the number that they display to us, and cancel the call if they’re different. The scammers aren’t paying Rogers for their services, we are! Rogers should never allow these calls to get through to us! We have had to put up with up to ten or more of these annoying calls in a day! We don’t sit with a phone in our hands while watching TV to check to see who is calling. If the caller’s number was displayed on the TV, as in the past, the decision to answer or not would be a lot easier but that’s not a solution. The calls have to be blocked! If Rogers isn’t capable of blocking these calls they should publish an understandable explanation, if they have one, of why they aren’t willing or capable of doing so!
Well, I am not up on the ease or difficulty of blocking spoofed numbers at source.
And perhaps I don't get as many of those as you do... although it is more than zero per day.
But I have adopted an SOP that i do not answer anything that is not in my phone's "phonebook", unless they leave a message. With talking-caller-id, I do not need to be anywhere close to the phone, especially with 3 or 4 or more wireless handsets scattered around the place.
I don't really disagree with you... just that the "problem" can be handled in another way.
