    Contact the people that are sending the faxes and tell them to stop. Sprint
    should be able to obtain their identity. The automated faxes are illegal.

    I had that happen to my telephone line, and there was no damn number in the
    caller ID. It stopped after a month.

    In using a reverse directory and plugging in one of the numbers, the
    following text shows up - The phone number "(305) 328-5630" is a Perrine,
    FL based phone number and the registered carrier is Xo Florida, Inc.
    However, due to number portability, some numbers have been transferred to a
    new service provider other than the registered carrier. In doing a search on
    XO, I came across their home page - http://www.nextlink.com/index.php .
    Maybe you can search through that site to contact TPTB to make those calls
    stop.

    Also, if you haven't already done this, register all your cell phone number
    with https://www.donotcall.gov/default.aspx .

    Not to be a spoilsport, but considering that unsolicited faxes are
    already illegal, I have my doubts that these guys will abide by the Do
    Not Call list.

    I had this issue once, one number...lots of fax attempts...gave the fax
    number a return fax asking them to quit. When they didn't, I sent them the
    entire contents of my hard drive, code and all via my fax modem until their
    machine cut me off (probably out of paper and memory too). I started off
    with 100 cover pages asking them to stop calling my cell phone and then the
    rest of the garbage. You know, I never got another fax call from them
    again. And on my home service, it didn't cost me a dime more to let my
    computer run through the night.
