Does your telephone ring all day long? Do you ever wish it would just stop? Don't just hate it when you are waiting for a call and everybody but that person calls. Have you ever felt like just unplugging your phone?

We just got our phone number changed to a private number. We are also on the DO NOT CALL list. Look inside your phone book for the number for the ''do not call'' number. It should help stop some of the calls. Another way is to use your caller ID AFTER they call your... You call them back and tell them you want to be taken off their list and all further/future lists. The lady at the phone company told me this... Try it.

Actually my phone doesn't ring at all or rarely... So when it does ring I jump, thinking to myself what's that.... The joys of the no call list. And an Attorney General who has fined many companies who ignore the list....

Just about the only people who call the house phone here are bill collectors looking for my stepdaughter. I tried to tell them that she is not here but they dont listen. There is one that calls several times a week. I have to laugh at that one because they end the call by saying that "this is a professional debt collector. Thank you. Have a nice day." I dont get a lot of other calls because we are on the Do Not Call list.

Telephone - Keep it off the hook when you don't want calls
Some days the phone rings all day and I can't get any work done. I keep answering the phone all day long and it's mostly for my husband who has a cell phone! Why do they keep trying the phone at home? It drives me crazy (especially with a baby at +home). Now I keep it off the hook when I really need some peace. I tried unplugging it once and a neighbour turned up at my door to check if everything was alright coz I wasn't answering the phone..lol and she stayed for another hour!
