Another Carrier Marked My Republic Wireless Number as Possible Spam

Symptoms

  • Republic Wireless phone number marked as "Spam Likely" by another carrier

Environment

Resolution

Reach out to the carrier in question and request your number be removed as blocked or "Spam Likely":

Cause

"Reputation labeling systems" for telephone calls are not perfect and there are a high number of false-positives caught up in an effort to filter out illegitimate calls. Our members caught up in these systems as blocked or mislabeled as Spam Likely can reach out to the systems in question to have their numbers removed from those lists.

Additional Notes

If you regularly make a large number of outbound "cold" calls for sales or business solicitation purposes, this may correctly have flagged your number as spam, since a user of one of these services may have reported your number and that type of activity can be deemed spam.
