Kick Up your Spectrum Phone

Many of us have Spectrum (formerly Time Warner) phones included with our Cable TV plans, but practically no one uses any of the great features.

You can block unwanted calls, setup distinctive ringing, get notified when you have new voicemail (yes - you have voice mail), use call forwarding, speed dialing and even more.

Just log in to your spectrum account - click on MyPhone and look for settings and the fun begins.

  • Accept Selected Callers
  • Block Anonymous Calls
  • Block Outbound Caller ID
  • Block Unwanted Callers
  • Call Waiting Options
  • Call Waiting to Voicemail
  • Forward All Calls
  • Forward Calls after No Answer
  • Forward Select Calls
  • Nomorobo

  • Receive Voicemail via text or email
  • Simultaneous Rings
  • Speed Dial
  • Three-Way Calling Options

My favorite is VIP calling and Nomorobo. VIP calling allows you to specify that when calls come from specified numbers you will hear two short rings instead of the normal ring. Also, you will hear a special call waiting tone when a VIP calls.  My other favorite is Nomorobo and I covered that in another post.


  1. Nice to have distinct ring at home when wife is calling. It's a double ring, like the British phones

  2. I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I am now not certain whether or not this submit is
    written through him as no one else realize such specific
    approximately my trouble. You are wonderful! Thanks!
