Posted by on April 22, 2021 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Do you remember the days where you would dial random numbers for fun? Well, as an adult it’s not so fun when this happens to you. In a day you receive one too many calls that are a sheer waste of time and energy. If you are tired of answering those late-night calls that were so unnecessary, it’s time that you take action. There are many ways of stopping spam phone calls to your landline.

What are some of the unwanted calls that you receive in a day?

1. Telesales and marketing calls:

As a marketing gimmick, pushy call centre agents call and insist that you take advantage of their service.

2. Silent calls:

There are calls that you get where the caller remains completely mute on the line.

3. Prank calls:

Possibly the worst is the calls from giggling children at the other end of the line.

4. Scam calls:

These callers usually pretend to be working at your bank and sort of try to get every piece of personal information out of you.

What if these calls could just stop?

There are ways of stopping spam calls to your landline

Are you tired of the junk calls that you receive? Take your time and privacy into your own hands by stopping these unwanted calls.

1. Telephone preference services:

This free service hides your number from interested telesales companies.

2. Blocking a call:

If you receive one too many calls from a telesales company or a mute caller, block the number so that they can never call you in the future.

3. Anonymous call rejection:

This is an option that you have to stop unwanted private phone calls. An anonymous call rejection service can be enabled when you contact your landline provider and ask for one. This way all unwanted calls don’t reach you.

4. Don’t give third parties permission to call:

Oftentimes when you enter competitions and subscribe, you tick the box that enables third parties to grab hold of your information. Steer clear of this as you don’t want to be the reason that you are receiving these unwanted calls.

5. Speak to your landline service providers:

Many landline service providers have their own options to keep unwanted calls at bay for their clients. BT call protect is a service provided for BT landline users who can send certain calls to their junk box. These landline users can listen to the junk calls at their own time.

6. Citizens Advice Bureau:

If you have been getting scam called, a more advisable option would be to report the scam caller. If you report the scam caller to the citizen’s Advice Bureau, there will be less of a chance of the scam caller calling other people after you.

You need to speak to your landline service provider about what options are available in terms of blocking and shying away from unwanted calls. There are many options that landline service providers offer either for free or at an additional cost that helps you to not answer an annoying phone call again. You will be much happier should these calls that happen at the oddest of times stop.

A simple way to sign up for the free telephone preference service is to sign up online. You can even opt for this service by calling 0345 070 0707. Required when signing up are a few details like your email address, landline number as well as a postal code. If you are searching for other ways to block and reject unwanted calls, there are many more options that you can use.

Remember the less time that you spend complaining about unwanted calls, the more time you will have to be happier.
