Thinking I should have ported the old Tracfone number to the new Tracfone I had to buy a couple months ago, since the old phone would soon stop working, instead of just using the number which came with the new one. Getting tons of spam calls (AND texts...and I don't even USE that function) on the new one.
Got woke up night before last by the phone making an alarm sound around 1:30am. It was a text Amber alert. I shut off ALL "alert sounds" after that. The cellphone would be the LAST place I'd notice any kind of alert anyway. I'm mostly in front of the desktop computer or TV. Every time an unknown call comes in, I hang up on it, hit "Block Number", and delete it. Only three other people HAVE the number for that phone. 😡
