Nuisance Telephone Calls

I have totally eliminated nuisance telephone calls and the solution was completely free of charge.

My telephone provider is TalkTalk and they provide a call screening service called Call Safe.

I've been using it for almost two years and in that time have not received a single sales call or a scam message.

BT has a similar system called Call Guardian but I'm unsure if it is a free service.

I have just changed the ringtone on the phone.
If the default tone rings... it gets ignored.
Direct family & friends have separate tones too.
It’s still a bit annoying, but at least we can ignore it or just ‘red button’ it.
Our motto... “ if it’s important.... they will ring back”

You are smart to have done that. I hear so many horror stories of people who have been scammed from people saying they are the police or IRS or the federal government. Thanks for getting the word out!
