Ringless voicemail

At least two courts have now held that a “ringless” voicemail — technology which “deposits” a voicemail into a consumer’s voice mail box without actually causing the phone to ring at the time of deposit — was a “call” within the meaning of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Saunders v. Dyck O’Neal, Inc., 319 F. Supp. 3d 907 (W.D. Mich. 2018); Schaevitz v. Braman Hyundai, Inc., 1:17cv23890, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48906 (S.D. Fla. Mar. 25, 2019).
