    You can't. The caller ID is another unreliable modern marvel.

    If the number isn't one I've programmed into my phone's contact list, I assume it's a spoof and I ignore it.

    Our Government has mandated that phone numbers will not be spoofed and there shall be no more spam phone calls. So, you can rest assured that the call/msg you are getting is perfectly legal and of interest to you.

    This is me, too, and it drives the wife nuts. I'll silence a ringing phone and barely glance to see who it is. "Don't you want to speak to 'George'? It's been a while, you should probably call him back." At which point I'll hand her the phone.

    I'm still old school, from the days when if you missed a call you never knew. I miss those days.

    Seems like you want to spend a lot of calories identifying the person and getting even with them instead of just blocking their calls and texts and ignoring them .

    I get it , I feel the same way , with some of the tests and calls I get but it just isn’t worth the energy and time .
    A lot easier to just block their number .
    That stops all calls and texts , at least until they or software starts inventing a different number .

    If you have an iPhone , it’s super easy to block the incoming calls and texts from a particular number .

    if it’s vulgar and threatening , take screen shots and do not respond .
