I have caller ID, but some calls come in as 'unknown' (which we usually don't answer) and some are 'private caller', which can be friends or family. So there's never any real way to know if they've removed you from the list, though we always say so before we slam down the phone whilst cursing

There used to be a 1-800 # that you could call and it would take you off all those call lists.
I think there might be a website too.

Thanks!

Oh I believe we registered a long time ago on those 'do not call' lists. But that doesn't stop them

I haven't really read many of the replies Lila ( ) but why not get call display? That's how I avoid all annoying calls from telemarketers/relatives

Yeah, I have caller ID too, but like you said, a lot of the calls come up private or unknown name. Basically what I do is, if it's a long distance call, I don't answer...most of the people I know who do call long distance show up on my caller ID....what I have trouble with missing though are calls from cell numbers, they usually don't show up.

GG, we don't have a central do not call list the way you guys do, although I've heard we're getting one. But legally, if you ask that they take you off their list, they're supposed to within a few weeks.

There's one good thing about the telemarketing calls. My last name is misspelled in all the telephone directories, for some reason. I don't know how that happened, as my bill comes to me in the correct spelling. So whenever a telemarketer calls and asks for me by the misspelled last name, I tell them that that person doesn't live here anymore and to take the name off the list.

When I first discovered the mistake, I was tempted to call and have them change it, but I never got around to it, and won't, because it's very convenient.

ETA - I have caller ID too, but like VP said, it's hard to know...

Junk Email/Spam is way more annoying and out of control for me than telemarketing calls! And there's no way to unsubscribe from most of those!

ok.. I see you have call display

My thought is that if the person's number doesn't show up, I don't pick it up...
