I use that a lot but since it could be a WPN that I don't know I don't like to unless repetetive. Great tip for all who do have Iphones though. :thumbup:

That is funny!

In case people didn't know, if you are getting calls from applemarketing who call for a lot of charities, you can fill in a do not call form from their website.

I don't like receiving calls about charities as I choose my own charities, I am working from home and they tend to interrupt me. I got a pleasant email back confirming I would be added to their do not call register.

I have had quite a few calls about the compensation I am owed. I wish they would just send the cheques! Meanwhile. they are crooks, not even nuisance but I will find their numbers and list them here under crooks.

Also sms from UK

I have downloaded an app called Blacklist (it's free) to my phone. You just add the number and the phone always automatically goes to voicemail once you have added that annoying number.

You can also opt out of any of the Reachtel calls. These are the political messages and sms's and also a lot of the survey ones plus others. Just go to their website and add your number. They drove me nutso until I found this in the last election. These don't qualify as marketing for the "do not call" register so you have to take yourself off their list

Yesterday I got a nuisance so instead of politely saying I was not interested and forgetting, I put the number in my contacts and called it 'nuisance'. It called again today. I saw the caller ID 'nuisance' and ignored it. I think I might do this for all of them.

Just had one from 0424739372.

Stated they were from Westfields and I entered a comp a while ago to win an iPhone 6 or Westfields shopping gift card. Stated I am eligible for an android if I own property and can answer some questions for them. I lied and said I rent, and she said oh well, we will ring you later when we have a promotion for renters

I am getting hounded by some energy company at the moment, all Melbourne numbers.
They are ringing from so many different numbers my blocked list is longer than Santas naughty list :o

Here's a few from just the last couple of days

From Your Life Choices:
You’ve just been slaving over a hot stove for an hour and you’re about to sit down to a nice dinner when the phone rings. If you’re like me, your first response will most likely be: “Who’s calling me at this hour?” because, let’s face it, everyone should know what time we eat dinner each night. Your second step might be to look at your caller ID to see if you recognise the caller’s number and chances are you’ll have no idea who’s calling.
You might at first think it’s a telemarketer, but what if it’s a loved one with a new number? Or what if it is a call that is actually important? This is a frustration felt by many Australians who receive persistent calls around 7pm. So, how can you find out who is calling? How do you put a stop to it?
Firstly, ensure you’re signed on to the National Do Not Call Register. This won’t stop all telemarketing calls, but it will significantly reduce them.
Your second option is to use a reverse lookup service. Here are a few you can access for free:
www.reverseaustralia.com
www.whocallsmeau.com
www.personlookup.com.au
www.reverseau.com
www.investigateway.com.au



To use these services, simply type in the number that’s calling you and they will try to identify the caller for you. It works a lot of the time, but it’s not always successful, as the ID occurs as a result of other people, who have answered nuisance calls, making reports to the service. Some even offer ratings as to how much of a nuisance a caller has been. For example, a telemarketing call from Oxfam may not be considered a nuisance call, whereas a call from some global trading company offering you super-high returns on investments would have a high nuisance rating.
There’s one more trick that can be quite successful. You see, any time you enter your phone details and name on an online form that is not secure, your information leaves a digital footprint which can be tracked.
And here’s a Google trick you can also use to identify unknown numbers:
open Google
in the search field, type in allintext: (all one word, lower case)
key in the unknown phone number within double quotation marks (i.e. “03-555-5555”)
your results will be listed in the standard Google search results format.

Now that you’ve identified the caller, you can block them if they’re are a nuisance. Here’s how to do it:
On iPhone:
go to ‘Phone’ > ‘Recents’
tap on the ‘i’ on the right-hand side of the nuisance number
the caller’s information page will open. Scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see ‘Block this Caller’
tap ‘Block Contact’ and you’re done.

On Android:
go to ‘Phone’ > ‘Logs’
tap on the number of the caller you wish to block
tap on the three dots at the top right-hand side of your screen
tap ‘Add to Auto Reject list’ and you’re done.

Now you can eat your dinner in peace and quiet!

Didn't know that, I've been getting calls from 0392649100 usually twice in a row every day going back to late October, I only answered the 1st time then put do not answer to the number. Think it may have been something to do with an Art collection as an investment but not 100% sure. The calls are coming at all hours and even had 1 this morning.
Most I miss so look them up then mark them as don't answer.

Just had one from 0448160317.

Stated they were from Cruise Megastore about the competition I entered.

She recited my correct email address, stated she didn’t have my first name on file and asked me for my first name, which I refused to give.

Then tried to sell me a 2 for 1 offer.

When I politely declined, she said good luck for when the competition is drawn in October.

I’ve checked Lottos and I have not entered a Cruise Megastore comp. Further, I can’t find any Cruise Megastore Competition on Lottos that ends in October.

Which makes me think my email address and phone number for another comp was on sold to them.

I have had so many phone calls from them. They don't take no for an answer. Nor do they remove you from the list.
