Why are my blocked numbers coming through and leaving voicemails?  If I block them it's for a reason!!

Blocking people only sends them straight to voicemail. You can't completely block them.

Yeah, I've got the same problem. The only solution I can suggest is that, get visual voicemail if you can and delete the messages in mass.

Contact your carrier.


What happens to blocked numbers depends on your carrier. There could be a pre-recorded such as: the number isnt reachable, or the number cannot accept calls, etc. Another feature might be caller hears one ring and then the call is disconnected.

You might also check the incoming number against the blocked call list. Sometimes spammers use rotating numbers, that are only digits off, like

999-123-4567 <- blocked number
999-223-4467 <- not yet blocked
