Question by Janet S: Has anyone else in Virginia gotten calls from Western Wats, it’s an 801 number…?
I live in Virginia and for the past week I’ve been receiving phone calls to my cell phone from the number 1-801-623-4625. I don’t answer calls from phone numbers I dont know, especially 800 numbers, etc. This number called me atleast once a day for like a week and after I got fed up with it I called the number back and got a recording saying that ‘I had been contacted by Western Wats, and independent research company…’ blah blah and then the call ends. Starting 2 days ago, the number began calling me twice a day instead of just once and it’s really really annoying me. I looked up the company online and found some articles about this company doing “push polling” and something about bashing Mitt Romney. Has anyone else been harassed by these calls and has anyone actually participated in their survey that can tell me what the hell they’re bothering me for? I’m a registered voter in VA and I’m guessing this is related to politics… Anything anyone knows about this will help greatly! Thx
Question by Panda: Unblocking outgoing calls in the state of Virginia?
My parents recently got a new phone service and number. About a month into their use, friends and family began to tell them that my parents’ number was showing up as private on their caller ID’s. They didn’t set it to private in the first place, and nothing the phone company recommends seems to be working. So I did some research and found out about a specific code you dail before your number to unblock all outgoing calls. Does anyone know what this code is for Virginia (or Chesapeake, Virginia if it functions on a city-based network)? Thank you ^-^

press star * 67 in Florida blocks caller id
if you want to know last caller was press *69

Speaking at Lehigh Carbon Community College in Allentown, Pa. on Friday, Dec. 4, President Obama touted the underlying numbers in today’s unemployment report, noting that the rate of lost jobs is slowing considerably, but adding that “we still have a long way to go.” He said community colleges must play a key role in retooling America’s economy. Obama stressed that while the nation lost 11000 jobs in November, that was about 115000 fewer than forecast. And the actual unemployment rate dropped, from 10.2 percent to 10 percent. “Overall, this is the best jobs report we’ve seen since 2007,” Obama said, though he added he wants to keep things “in perspective.” Joking that “good trends don’t pay the rent,” Obama said the nation still needs to figure out new ways to generate jobs. “The direction is clear,” Obama said. “When you think about how this year began … today’s report is a welcome sign that there are better days ahead.” Video Rating: 5 / 5
