Dear Lazyweb, can anyone help?
Despite having long ago registered NOT to get spam phone calls, I get more of them than I do real calls. It’s annoying enough when I’m sitting by the ‘phone (as I am when at the ‘puter – with which it shares a desk), but makes me positively angry when I run in from another room for it. I’m getting to the point where I don’t bother to try with landline calls, except when I’m expecting them.
I tried asking BT about blocking spam numbers a while ago, but they say they can’t, or won’t. SO I wonder, is there a ‘phone or other bit of kit I can buy, that’ll screen out incoming calls from any 08xx number (as well as withheld numbers – so I don’t have to trouble BT with them)? I avoid answering those already, as they are reliably some-call-centre.
