She got her phone wet, and the mic doesn't work, so she uses a bluetooth headset for all her calls, which is fine, until she puts the headset in her pocket and then it keeps pocket dialing our landline, because (she says) when it pocket dials it redials the last number it connected to, and our son calls her frequently, and she him. (He lives with me.)|
It is good that she is available to talk to him on the phone, and I am fine with him calling her whenever he wants to. I am NOT fine with our phone ringing ten calls in a row, after midnight, and nothing to hear on the other end except distant voices mumbling to each other.
Yeah, I can turn the ringers off on our phone (actually, I would disconnect the Ooma output to the phones) but then I wouldn't know when legitimate calls were coming in. And I would constantly forget to plug it back in in the morning.
I don't want to block her because she has shared legal custody and a complete right to phone him up, and he would be unhappy if she couldn't. Also, our home is in a cell-phone dead zone, so we can't use our cells at home to get/make calls. He does have a cell of his own, as do I.
What would you do?
