Hi guys, David and David Here Payette Forward,
and in this video, we’re going to explain why “Potential Spam” is showing up on caller
ID on your iPhone. This is a new Verizon feature and you also
might see this if you use another wireless carrier that piggybacks off of Verizon’s network,
but it’s designed to weed out potentially spam callers and keep you safe. Yeah. So let’s open up the Phone app and right here, I got a couple of calls from “Potential Spam”
from Pascagoula, Missouri and Madison, Connecticut. Interesting. Now, I don’t have a contact named “Potential Spam” in my iPhone. Right. So chances are that this is just an innocent
mistake. Right. So let’s give them a call and let them know that it’s potential spam. Okay, here we go. Let’s call Missouri here put it on speakerphone.
“If you are interested in the special product offer, please press 1.” I think this might actually be potentially
spam. Yeah sounds like a telemarketer has called
you, right, trying to sell you a product that might not even exist. They’re trying to get your credit card information
and probably. “Goodbye.” You Too! Alright. There’s one more…Madison, Connecticut. Let’s see this poor victim of Verizon’s labeling. Oh it’s ringing this time. “Welcome to Verizon Wireless. Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check the number and dial again.” Apparently Verizon shut him right down. Okay. Well, clearly its a pretty good spam detection feature though. Now, it’s not going to get every call but these new call screening features are getting better and better and better. T-Mobile actually has one, its “Scam Likely” it’s getting really good. Yep. Sprint? Sprint too right? Yeah probably. So that is what “Potential Spam” is on your iPhone! If you found this video helpful, please give it a thumbs up.
