Cell phone robocalls are very irritating, can come a cross very threatening, and can lead to some sort of stress to those receiving the call. These infuriating calls need to be stopped immediately for the simple fact they may break certain laws and only bother people that could be doing much more productive things besides listening to a automated voice relay a message about something irrelevant.

Almost every day sitting and eating dinner with my family we get a call. Every time its the same automatic telemarketer selling the same product or asking for money. And always its something similar to what my parents have bought online. A couple months ago my parents bought a knife sharpening kit. 2 months later we all of a sudden get calls regarding knifes and other knife accessories. Are online companies releasing private information on what a person bought online and selling it? I recently read an article that there are certain companies that sell information or online “cookies” to other companies so they can sell them products. In my opinion this is a direct violation of a persons right to privacy. Just because you buy something online that doesn’t mean its public information and many times the websites have disclaimer policies that assure privacy. Something needs to change in the process of online shopping and its relation to telemarketing.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because they’re incredibly inconvenient for the callers trying to gain assistance. They’re cold and uncaring, giving the caller no human interaction for the duration of the call. They’re a complete waste of time as well. What could take longer than having to hold after one of these calls? The callers sometimes have to wait insanely long periods of time just to get a simple question answered.

I agree that something needs to be done about robocalls. I know how my family feels about them when we get them; we aren’t very happy about them. Luckily, we haven’t gotten charged for their pointless calls, but who is to say one day we won’t? I can’t imagine how many people have gotten charged for these calls. I would be pretty angry if I was charged. Some of these calls we are receiving can be illegal, and I think the government should do something to find out where these calls are coming from and put an end to it. The sooner we can stop these calls, the happier everyone will be. I just had to get a new number for my phone and I have been receiving robocalls from all over the place. I would love to put an end to it, so I know how others feel.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because they take all human aspects from the customer. Hearing a robot on the other end of the line isn’t personal, it’s not warm, not welcoming, not even human. It can also be very tedious and time consuming to deal with. Instead of simply having a human being on the other end of the line, ready to answer a question, companies instead choose to use a robot usually to patch the customer through to the human. Why not just have no robocalls then? It would be more time efficient, more personal, and better for the customers overall.

Robocalls have been increasing, especially calls pertaining to surveys, opinion polls or election times. These calls are impersonal and are timed to disrupt families at the worse possible time. I cannot understand how these robocalling businesses feel this process is effective. My parents registered to be on the no call list, however these calls seem to come into our home frequently. The most fustrating part of these calls are the repeat calls. Usually my parent dimple hang up the phone when they receive a call, only to receive the same call in the near future. Travel calls seem to be increasing too, once again I cannot imagine these businesses have much success.

There should be a stop to cell phone robocalls. Yes, you read that right! It’s those annoying and useless phone calls that ask you if your interested in their product. First of all, what happens if your in class then all of a sudden your cell phone is ringing. Your teacher would end up telling you to bring up your phone and send it to the office. What good would that bring you? Just another day of being a victim of robocalls.
In addition, debt robocalls should be illegal as well. Every single day across the country, people are getting hundreds of thousands of calls for debts that they don’t owe, and that’s illegal. It’s a $500 minimum violation for every unwanted phone call to your cell phone, and could be worth up to $1,500 per call. In that case robocalls should be illegal all in all.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because while driving, some people get distracted by their cell phones when they begin to ring. Sometimes they may think it is an important call that they have been waiting for but, in reality it is just a robocall. In the matter of those seconds when the driver becomes distracted by their cell phone, they are putting everybody with or around them at risk of being in an accident that could have been easily prevented because of an automated message that most people only listen to the beginning of before hanging up.

As a student who intends to go into the field of legal studies, the issue of illegal cell phone robocalls really strikes a nerve. Imagine sitting at home enjoying a nice family moment, when suddenly the phone rings, its an annoying prerecorded message going on and on about… what this time? Another sales pitch? Low-interest rates? A free vacation? Its not right, and if its to your cell phone, without your consent, its illegal. They probably ruined your evening, and likely caused just another ounce of stress in an overall stressful society. They need to be stopped, and in order to do so someone needs to take a stand.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because these types of calls are unfair to every individual that owns a phone. I can understand if you have a child attending school and you receive a informational messages such as a school closing but solicitation type calls should not be allowed unless the owner of the phone gives their consent to receive these types of phone calls.
An individual can place their home or personal wireless number on the national Do-Not-Call list. This list prohibits telemarketers from calling – even when they do not use autodialers or prerecorded messages – unless you have given them your prior express written permission to call, or they are exempt from the rule.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because without surprise to anybody, they are a very inconvenient thing to have to listen to and only cause irritation to ones life. There needs to be a better job regulating these robo-calls when an individual requests to be taken off of the calling list and still gets called again in the future. I believe that there needs to be some sort of action taken against companies who choose to recall customers who have requested to be removed from the list, because it is not for that they benefit from being a nuisance to the general population while we have to listen to their sales pitches. However, even through a little bit of research, I have been provided with a do not call sight that will help and individual who may still be receiving unwanted calls and wants the misery to end.

Cell phone robocalls are disrespectful to peoples privacy and annoying. These telemarketing calls are sent to a list of people who may or may not have signed up for them. They can come in forms of text messages and phone calls to emergency numbers, wireless numbers, and even patient rooms at health care facilities which becomes annoying after a while because if they aren’t in your cell phone plan, they can become very expensive. Not only are they expensive but they are annoying, especially if you never signed up for them. Most are illegal but the companies try to go around that aspect of them. I think that the Federal Communications Commission should help to stop cell phone robocalls because they are very disruptive and expensive.

Automaited messages are pointless when they come from businesses marketing their products. When these calls are received, most people hang up anyways. People do not appreciate insincere messages, and if anything, it is just a hassle for the ones working for companies to have to input phone numbers to have called. It could save time, energy, and grief. The only downside could be loss of jobs for those recording the messages or those sending them out.

To Whom It May Concern,

It is important to stop cell phone robocalls. These calls, come in at the most inconvenient time during the day. Early morning hours, late night hours, work hours, family time hours, etc. These calls do not just occur once a day. It is usually multiple times a day. These robo calls, are usually pre-recorded messages, that does not hold any important information, for the individual who answers. These calls are an invasion of privacy, being that the calls are received by cell phone numbers. Which are not posted in the local phone books. Also, children are receiving these annoying calls. Because parents purchase cell phones for their children. Cell phones are used for personal and business use. Receiving robo calls, on a private or work phone is a hassle. And should not be allowed.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because they are a fringe on our privacy. Why give companies the right to send automated calls to your landline and or cell phones when most of the calls are not relevant to the person. The calls can be annoying. They arrive at different times often around a meal time. It is not right that you have to listen to the entire call before they give you an option as to whether or not you receive these types of calls in the future. Some Robocalls don’t even give you the option to do so. They need to change that . To be fair they should reference an option at the beginning of the call that you can opt out of it. If you opt out that should be the end of the robocall.

in the course of five years, my phone has filled up with more than fifty robocalls for the same home security company that we will never be able to call back or use. Every single time they call, we have to pick up and place it back down to avoid the hassle of the clutter. There are more important calls that could take up my message play backs like calls from my grandpa dying from his lungs, or cousins that I have waited countless hours to hear back from. There are also the calls that come from companies such as newspaper regardless of the fact that we are signed up with the Canton Repository. It gets annoying when you only want to stick with something that works, and they try to offer you “better things” like you’re not happy already.

The robocalls need to stop because half of time the calls they get from their house are nothing but robocall. The calls aren’t necessary because they are not important us and are pointless. The robocalls have no purpose for their calls and most of all they don’t say any thing important that doesn’t makes us want to listen to them. The calls are just a waste our time and their’s. This is why I believe Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because of the continuous interruptions imposed upon the public resulting from the robo calls. Calls are important to people and there is a tendency, even during busy and important moments, to answer the calls, even if from unknown callers. The constant interruptions not only impose on important household duties but also work-related duties, either at home or at the office. From an employment standpoint, there is tremendous loss of work productivity as a result of the millions of calls made to people while at work, which results in billions of dollars of lost productivity. The Robocalls may also tie-up the emergency lines for important calls such as from family members, individuals calling the police and the fire department.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because people deserve a conversation on a much more personal level. A conversation about any political party or the promotion of a company, should be between two people, not a person and a computer. If I were to receive a call about Bernie Sanders’ campaign, I wouldn’t want to listen to some robot that’s only job is to state information. I want to talk to someone that shares similar ideas, and agree that I’m voting for all the right reasons. #endrobocalls

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because they are unnecessary, illegal and annoying. They are unnecessary because about 99% of the time the one being called never signed up for them and is uninterested in the product; which makes the call a waste of time. 0.1% if they are somehow magically interested and have questions about the product they can’t ask them because they are on the phone with a robot. Yes, I know rude. This leads to the unconstitutional factor. If the individual never gave their information to the caller and never expected this call than it is illegal. Due to the fact that in order to gain this personal information, the company needed to do illegal snooping and is calling unidentified. Lastly, robocalls are annoying because they are unexpected and sadly frequent. Also, it is not that simple to remove your line from the list. One would think yelling into the phone “NOT INTERESTED” multiple times and hanging up multiple times would get the idea across; but then again it is a robot calling you.

When I told him that our family was going on a free cruise, all thanks to me, I added smiling, he laughed for about 2 minutes straight before telling me that there was no free cruise. It’s fake. They were trying to get my bank account information.

In our everyday lives, we are faced with annoying things. The topic of technology as a whole has sparked debates for many years, is it beneficial or detrimental for us, when is enough enough, etc. But, I think we all can agree that robocalls have become the most bothersome in recent times. Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because these calls could mean additional payments for the receiver, promotes scamming, and violates privacy. Our experiences with cellphone providers should not be hindered by this. Though an problem, there are solutions. Things such as blocking unknown numbers, withholding personal information, and reporting calls can help in the fight against robocalls. As producers and consumers, we have the right and free will to eliminate unneeded sources. This way, we take back what bit of control we do have over the ever growing world of technology.

Robocalls are super annoying and i can’t say how many times a recorded phone call has called me, they are annoying. Robocalls take out time from you talking to someone like to check your phone and answering it. The calls appear to be from 473 area code for someone to be distress. This area code is international for Grenada. Those who call the number back will be charged for every minute they are on the line and cost add up in to thousands of dollars. never respond to a robocall. The FTC suggests that you do not answer the calls. They also warn not to “press 1” or “press 2”. If you respond by pressing any number it will probably lead to more robocalls because the company calling will now know it has reached a working number or a “live” prospect. robocalls tend to also try to get your information and that can lead to something bad.

The matter is ridiculous and definitely should be limited. There is also the possibility of identity theft through robocalls because although they may be prerecorded they can also be tapped which is why no one trusts robocalls anymore.

Cell phone calls need to be regulated because life is precious. According to statistics we already spend nearly nine hours a day on our phones. Whether uploading a story on SnapChat, texting a friend about the math homework, or calling to check in on grandma, we are on our phones every single day embracing technology and enjoying our virtual lives. However, there is no need to increase this somewhat alarming statistic with superfluous “robocalls” from telemarketers and other companies of the sort trying to get us to buy their products or services only increasing the amount of time spent on our phones. As Americans living in 2016 there is non need to pick up the phone halfway expecting to hang up within the first 20 seconds after seeing an unrecognizable caller I.D. For others, less patient than I, often don’t bother to answer the phone in the first place once they see that out of state or more likely 1-800 caller I.D. For it’s now more than just the annoyance and frustration these calls cause, but more so a real underlying threat when those, like my mother, tired of cumbersome telermarketers, decide to quit answering the phone altogether, vowing to only answer local calls. With this scenario robocalls are endangering the lives of loved ones potentially calling for help or in a state of emergency. If I or one of my siblings want to call our home phone from a friend’s phone because our’s died, letting her know I got hurt at my soccer game she might not ever get my call. These disruptive services are scaring people away from their cellular devices and furthermore endangering others by holding up the phone line as well as driving up phone bills for those who fall for their trap by answering and engaging in a conversation unaware of the robotic monotone voices responding to them. No longer do we have to sit back and allow these calls to disrupt our day, separated us from our loved ones, nor drive up our phone bills. We can stand together and “Vote NO! For Robo”.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because they are extremely obnoxious and absolutely weird. Imagine waiting for an actual call from your best friend only to answer to a computerized voice that talks about a business you have no interest in. Although comprehensible, their long monotone speech soon becomes a bore. You keep answering “no” but they take it as a “yes” and immediately lead you to another line where you must yet again face another robocall. They think they understand you, but you know they’re just sounds programmed to be of service. You’ve been constantly receiving these types of calls for as long as you can remember. Sometimes you wonder why companies send these not so genuine calls that only bombard you in attempt to take your money. For once, you would like an actual person to make the reminder that your dental appointment will be next week instead of the usual electronic voice to leave that nerve wrecking message. Maybe just maybe, you might finally like what they are doing.

The Federal Trade Commission’s “ Do Not Call Program” in Washington, D.C. has put an effort to try to counteract this conflict of misused calls. They receive thousands of calls each month for complaints about telemarketing and their persistence of being bothersome. According to the Federal Communications Commission, telemarketing to a cell phone or a landline was and has always been illegal and was once banned and outlawed in 2009. This is why Robocalls must be regulated on a daily basis, so that all of the constant nagging and illegal marketing can come to a cease.

My name is Dakota Ross, I am seventeen years old and I am currently a senior at Lowell High School. I am planning to attend Ball State University this fall and my phone number is 2193818867 if you need to contact me. Cellphone robocalls need to be regulated because they can be bombastic and potentially dangerous. If unregulated, people can send robocalls to you as many times as they want. This can be considered an invasion of privacy. They can also be very dangerous depending on the content of the call. Robocalls can contain threats and commands to hand over personal information such as social security or account numbers. They typically cause more harm then good so I firmly believe robocalls must be regulated.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because they are a nuisance and a disruption to the family home. I can recall a certain recurring scene from my growing up, and I know that you can too:
You’re sitting around the table with your family, mouth watering and stomach growling, just waiting to dig right in. However, you know that Mother will be quite upset if you reach for even the smallest green bean without waiting for the food to be blessed. You’re grateful when everyone finally bows their heads for the prayer when before a single word can be uttered, the phone shrills. Mother always insisted on answering the phone in case of it being an emergency, so everyone had to wait as she scurried to answer it. For the sake of your stomach and whoever is on the other end, you hope there’s a national crisis on hand. But you watch Mother’s always pleasant face change as a wave of annoyance crosses it when she realizes that no one was going to answer her cheerful hello except for the machine on the other end. And you can’t say that you are very happy either. Everyone’s peace of mind has been ruined in this moment thanks to the hated robocalls, these useless, annoying machines that only repeat emotionless, meaningless sales pitches as they invade your right to privacy and happiness.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because there is billions of illegal phone calls by telemarketers every year. Illegal robocalls are telemarketers calling to sell a product or service. Luckily, it is also illegal for telemarketers to make phone calls to cell phones under the Federal Communications Commission. The main problem, is telemarketers continue to make phone calls to landlines; which makes having a landline quite an annoyance. The illegal robocalls consist of scams, and the promising of goods or services, that are not delivered after they gave their credit card information. Most older people above the age of 65 are targeted, because most of them still have landlines and are more susceptible to answer their telephone. Also, the older the phone line the more risk, because the same number has been passed around for years and sold by other companies. This has got to stop, and we need to inform more people about the robocalls. It’s not fair that telemarketers are targeting older people and scamming them out of their money. The best thing we can do is not answer these phone calls, and ignore and avoid them at all costs.

It has gotten to the point that we have gotten rid of our home phone. The only people that kept calling us were these reordered calls or called from politics requesting our votes. The government needs to regular these robocalls in because these “companies” are invading our privacy rights and have continued to invade these rights even when people have demanded them to stop the calls and remove their phone numbers.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because of how invasive they are. A cell phone is a phone designed to be carried around a person at all times. The intended purpose is to have only people who are familiar contact. These people tend to know when it is okay to call and when a person will be available. An automated call will always calls during certain times, which can be disruptive when they clash with a person’s personal life. These calls can also have very little benefits as they can be from any service, regardless of how applicable it is to one’s own life. For instance, a person being called for about a “debt” they owe does not help in any way, as some of these are also fraud calls.

Cellphone robocalls need to be regulated because not only are they bothersome, but also they allow scam artists to reach out to consumers. Fraud is quite common in these robocalls. Some may ask for birth date, social security number, and even credit card information which can result in identity theft and much more.

Cellphone robot calls need to be regulated because of how impersonal the whole interaction is. They’re there to sell to the consumer yet, the whole process comes off as cold and lifeless. It doesn’t help that they are repetitive to the point of it being harassment, they interrupt during business hours, and the consumers are charged for each call.

Cell phone robocalls need to be regulated because we can choose which party we want to vote for. We don’t need recorded messages/people calling us to persuade our vote to favor their party. We have certain unalienable rights, as American citizens, to vote for what we believe. If robocalls do not stop, we will just continue to be pressured into voting for beliefs that we do not agree with. As Americans, we need to stand up for our rights, and show that robocalls are unwanted and not needed.
