Up until this month began, Do Not Disturb effectively prevented telemarketing calls from ringing through on my Note 10+. Only people on my contact list could ring through.
My phone had an update about a week ago.
Several times in the past week, my phone has rung and it was an out of state caller not on my contact list. These calls disrupt recording sessions and meetings.
Normally, only a family member with a serious emergency is able to ring through, but I cannot have my phone ringing with telemarketers. I will have to put it in Airplane mode, but then family can't reach me in an emergency.
Did the last update break this Do Not Disturb feature?
I'm using DnD because my provider, Verizon, charges for the spam blocking service.
It worked perfectly until this past week, when my phone received an update. Now the feature is broken. I nearly got a contempt of court citing while in court the other day because my phone, which never rang audibly before, rang out loud during a deposition. Now I have to use airplane mode, but cannot receive emergency calls from my family. What's the point of having a phone?
I just want Samsung to fix what the update broke. It feels like a conspiracy to allow telemarketers to bother us cell users.
I have Block Unknown Callers enabled, but it too stopped working last year, so I had to enable DnD, which worked absolutely. I could see the call coming in as the display would light up with the number, but the ringer was silent.
Under Block Unknown Callers, I don't have an option to block repeat callers.
Since that update, it's no longer silent. No one I know calls me during certain times of the day excepting a dire emergency. To have total strangers or robocalls ring through all of sudden is a huge problem for me.
