Re: More app trouble
Yeah, I'm at the point where I just never answer the phone unless I either recognize the number or I'm specifically expecting a call. If it's a real person with a good reason for calling, they'll leave a voicemail.

Re: More app trouble
Agree - NEVER trust the phone - we get scam calls all of the time and a few i enjoy such as telling the famous Microsoft engineer I have a bug on my system.  Takes anger to good use.  (My former manager is better, he tries then to upload ransomware to THEIR system for the revenge of it).   About 5% of inicoming calls are real and the rest junk.  Silence phone calls to - and spoof phone numbers.  Don't answer really unless sometimes I just want a bit of threathunting to see who calls.
