Ways To Prevent Nuisance Calls Without Spending Too Much

All of us have, at one time or another, fallen victim to a nuisance caller, and we all know that once they have made contact they are very determined not to let go. The irritation felt by any victim of nuisance telephone calls is something that cannot be overstated. There are ways around this, and it is important to employ as many as possible. 1. Get added to a call-barring list. This means that by law you cannot be contacted by companies for the purpose of sales, […]

Nuisance Phone Calls

Although we can be grateful to Alexander Graham Bell for inventing the telephone and making it possible for us to speak to people who are far away, the truth is that many of us, in this day and age, find as much to complain about as we do to celebrate with our phones. For many of us, barely a day goes by when we are not contacted on the phone by someone to whom we have no desire to speak. The problem with nuisance telephone calls is […]

Keeping Nuisance Callers At Bay The Easy Way

Most of us probably receive at least one call every so often that we would prefer not to receive, and for those of us who end up on lists of potential customers for telemarketers, that one call every so often can be as many as three a day or even more. The frustration, irritation and in many cases fear that these calls can cause simply do not seem to occur to the person making the call, or to the company they work for. In other cases, more […]

How Does Reverse Phone Lookup Work?

The practice of using Reverse Phone Lookup technology to find out who is calling you is gaining in popularity, as people are keen to protect their privacy and prevent anyone from calling them for a reason other than something completely innocent. The technology has developed over the years to the point where it has become genuinely very powerful and useful. Up until quite recently, the only people with direct access to reverse phone directories were law enforcement authorities and public libraries. The new system works because it […]

Giving Yourself The Upper Hand

Most of us have probably known someone who has had a problem with unsolicited telephone calls, and some of us will ourselves have had these problems. There is not much you can say about the way that these calls affect a person, but if you are of a nervous disposition it can reach the stage where you are jumping out of your skin every time the phone rings. Whoever the unsolicited calls are from, they can be horrible for the recipient – and yet there seems to […]

The Ideal Way To Find Out Who Is Calling You

Many people – perhaps most people who have a phone – have at one time or another been somewhat concerned by the number of calls they get on it from numbers that they do not recognise. It is something that affects cell phone users perhaps more than anyone, due to the fact that we have our cell phone with us all the time whereas the home phone is often unattended when everyone in the house is either out at school or at work. While our cell phones […]

Shaking Off Nuisance Callers Once And For All

There can be no doubt that, as an invention, the telephone is one of man’s greatest achievements. With all of the developments that have taken place, it is now possible to call someone on the other side of the world from wherever you want – including from the Internet, an invention which itself would have been impossible without telephone lines. On balance, the telephone is an invention very few of us would ever want to be without. In truth, it is something that most of us make […]

Like A Phone Book But In Reverse

It is easy enough to find the telephone number of a person or a business when you know their name. It is a simple matter of getting the telephone directory and looking them up, and from there you can call them on the phone to speak to them. Doing things the other way round, though, has not been possible for most of our lives, as much as we would like it to be. If you partly recognise the number you can go through your own personal phone […]

The Importance of Phone Security

You do not need to give someone your telephone number these days for them to be able to call you. Due to the – unfortunately entirely legal – practice of companies sharing contact details for their customers, it is entirely possible that someone can call you without you ever having spoken to them before or given them your number in any way. Once they have it, however, they can be persistent even if you have made it absolutely clear that you have zero intention of speaking to […]

Stop Telemarketers At The First Hurdle

We have all been there. Sitting quietly reading a book, or settling down to the dining table, and then the phone goes. Mindful of the fact that it could be an important call, you pick up and answer and before you know it you are being bombarded with questions by someone asking you if you want to change your electricity supplier or trying to sell you insurance. Quite apart from being intrusive and impolite, it is incredibly annoying. And the worst thing is that because YOU are […]
