Thanks for the info Cory, but my question is how do these calls, even though I answer them still go to my voicemail. I answer, after a few seconds, I hang up. I then see my voicemail indicating that there was a call. When I check, there is usually no one there.
@NormEC : If you are on the phone and another call comes in, it will usually go directly to voicemail, unless you have call waiting. Are both calls from the same place? Can you tell? Is this home phone or cell? Most spammers will not leave a message when they reach voicemail, so you hear "nothing". I never answer phone numbers unless they are in my directory.
Ok, I guess I am not making myself clear. I am not on any other calls. Even though I answer a Robo call on my iPhone SE. the Robo call still goes to my voicemail. This very annoying and just fills up my voice mail with unnecessary blank calls.
From what I gather, the only way this could be possible is if the Robo caller was misconfigured and would happen to spam call your number consecutively, they would first call you, you would see an incoming call, then they would call you again right after, but since your phone has an incoming call, the next call goes right to your voicemail you will not see a call waiting indicator if the call happens when someone is already calling you,
This could be a possible explanation, but other than that I find it very strange as it has not happened to anyone else I have spoke with.
1. I am not on any other calls.
2. Even though I answer a Robo call on my iPhone SE. the Robo call still goes to my voicemail.
1. But you are using your phone as you state in your item 2.
2. When you are using your phone for a phone call, if another call comes in, it will go directly to voicemail. The caller may not even hear a single ring at their end. The call goes directly to voicemail and there will not be the usual 20 second delay before going to voicemail. Robo voicemails are usually blank as previously stated.
3. As mentioned by @Pauly the second call could be from the same robo caller.
4. I find that robo calls come in batches. I can go for a month and not see a single robo call, but then receive 5-10 in one day.
5. You didn't answer the questions in my previous post - Are both calls from the same place (spoofed number)? Can you tell?
I do not believe it is possible for a call to be answered and routed to voicemail at the exact same time, without some sophisticated routing and planning. Rogers system is very simple, if someone calls you and you do not answer the call or you have a call in progress or your phone is unreachable, your call is routed to the voicemail platform.
Either way, we can not easily stop these spam or robo calls so its best to learn how to avoid falling victim to being scammed and simply try not to answer unrecognised numbers when ever possible
