Yes, this is exclusive for the AT&T Death Star, as far as I know.
One buddy, think he was a government contractor at one time, claimed that, this is really dated material, but he claimed, at the big AT&T building downtown? There was an empty room, right next to all the phone switches, and some alphabet government agency had a private room for monitoring all of AT&T’s voice and digital traffic.
Big Brother is listening?
Again, this is strictly hearsay, with zero proof of the claim.
“I know a guy who knew guy, who said…”
My current service provider is The Death Star, cheapest I can get, service is good enough, but the price is right, so yeah, I use them.
What I could never figure out was why there was no root level protection from crank calls.
Call Protect uses the power of the AT&T network to automatically block fraud calls
Its time has arrived.
Love thy phone, again.
If the Death Star is the service provider, then this requires no thought —
It’s no longer “new” but it works, and it works well. So far, maybe two, three unwanted calls have made it through, but those numbers are now blocked, system-wide.
