Re: Perhaps

I was told once that the robot calling devices are programmed to connect to an agent the second time the callee says "hello". While I do not know whether that is true, I have found that saying "hello" only one time appears nearly always to be effective in preventing the call from being connected to an agent.

It might be useful if someone with actual technical knowledge of these systems provided truth.
