One of the reasons is that it has become bombarded by spam, in particular calls where there is no one (or at least, no one speaking up) on the other end.  Only a minority of calls are even arguably legitimate: an actual person who's not a telemarketer, or a robocall from an allowed source (such as an appointment reminder).
