A friend with a Verizon phone using the Travel Pass feature in Singapore ($10/day) called me on my Verizon iPhone. I have the Verizon spam filter installed. Even though the person is in my address book and SMS messages appeared as expected, the phone call was announced on my phone as potential Spam from Russia?
We can only imagine the confusion that this message caused when your friend called you, TheLAD. We'd love to find out more about this concern to provide you with the correct information about this subject. To better assist you, we'd like to ask some questions. In addition to the potential spam message, how did your friend's number appear when you received the call on your account? Did it show his number, a different number, cut off number, etc.?
