    I've been getting about 4 calls a day with "Unavailable Unknown Number" as the caller I.D. I have Sun Rocket, using my Cable Hook Up. When I go on line, I see the number as, believe it or not, (Res) tri-cted. I've sent e-mails to Sun Rocket and because it's "Alpha", I can't block the number from coming in. It has to be numbers. Smart aren't they? Does anyone know how I can find out what number is calling, or how I can stop this from coming in? When I pick up the phone, no one is there. I don't pick it up anymore, I did it 3 times, no more. Help!:mad:

    I don't answer calls that come up like that...more than likely it's some goof using *67 to block their name! :rolleyes:
