Unwelcome telephone calls

There are many ways you can limit the amount of unwanted telephone calls you get; including registering your home telephone number with the Telephone Preference Service’s ‘opt-out’ list which is a popular free solution.

Anglesey Trading Standards recommend two products to consumers who receive a number of nuisance telephone calls.

CallBlocker by CPR Global

CPR Global offer consumers a reasonably priced device pre-programmed with 200 of the most common nuisance callers.

This plugs into your landline and immediately starts blocking unsolicited calls. The user can also press the block now button which prevents that number calling again and adds it to the numbers already stored. The CPR CallBlocker also eliminates the need to share personal information with a third party.

trueCall Care

trueCall Care plugs in between the phone and the phone socket. When a call arrives it checks the caller’s number. If it is a trusted caller then the phone rings as normal, but trueCall Care intercepts all other callers and plays them a message.

Most telemarketers hang up when they hear this message, and automated and silent calls won’t get through. If you want even more protection, trueCall Care can completely block unrecognised callers.

The unobtrusive trueCall Care unit is quick and easy to install and can be remotely managed over the Internet so you can keep the trusted caller list up to date and monitor the call log from anywhere. It is fully configurable so you can choose how you want calls to be managed and can also block outgoing calls to certain numbers. With the optional Call Recorder memory card you can even record the calls.

Online access is free for the first year after which there is an annual charge of £25.
