    Does anyone know how I can stop getting marketing phone calls? Every day the phone must ring half a dozen times and they are really peeing me off now. I have just been out and had only been in 15 minutes and it rang twice, both times marketing calls.

    We have caller display so I haven't answered them but i'm getting really wound up with it now.

    Is it the same marketing company with the same number - if so you can block their number with BT. If you are with BT phone them because theres something else they can do (although can't remember what it is :wall: I think they have their own telephone preference service and will give you numbers to call and register with - all free)

    I had the same thing a few months ago and arrrgggghhhhhh it was so annoying, especially when the phone was going at 11-12 at night and 5-6 in the morning, I used to cack myself something was wrong with friends or family and all I got when I answered the phone was a stupid beeping tone :evil: :evil:

    OMG thats hilarious :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Im gonna try that :lol:

    Although I did get a call once while eating my dinner once, I asked them to hold the line while I finsihed my dinner, put the phone on the table so they could hear us eating and chatting, and when I finished she was still on the phone! I just picked it up and said "sorry no sales calls" and hung up :rotfl:

    TPS are great. Mainly because if you then DO get a marketing call after 28 days you know they must have got your number illegally, so you can string them along till you get their details and then report them on TPS website! Ha! Revenge! :cheer:

    lol you've just reminded me of what my uncle and my mum do.

    someone phoned my uncle up trying to sell him a mobile phone with all these great deals and everything... he let them carry on and then he said "are you taking the p!ss out of me, i have no fingers so how do you expect me to use a mobile" :rotfl:

    (he's joking of course!)

    then the other week my mum got a phone call selling windows and doors.
    she said to them, "we don't have any windows or doors, we live in a tent"
    and the woman said, how have you got a phone line if you're living in a tent?
    and my mum said, "because i'm magic" :rotfl:
    the saleswoman put the phone down :lol:
