It looks a very good product but seems a bit pricey.
For that reason....I'm out.
#2
I dont why the voting cold...sounds excellent idea, I still keep calls, even though bt have blocked them
#3
I saw this tonight too-one thing I dont understand though-if the person who calls you has a "witheld" number,even if you allow them through,how does the machine know them the next time without going through the whole screening process?
#4
Or the free alternative which blocks at least 90% of this junk, at least I have found it does, then if you get the odd call tell them you are registered and they soon get the gist..

http://www.mpsonline.org.uk/tps/

Free registration with the telephone preference service, It is a legal requirement that all organisations (including charities, voluntary organisations and political parties) do not make such calls to numbers registered on the TPS unless they have your consent to do so.

So really if you are registered with the TPS, this seems expensive for the odd (and I mean very unlikely) call you may get to the contrary.

This really would only be useful for people getting nuisance calls of the non-telemarketing variety (mother in laws!, harrasment, prank calls etc)

TPS as good as it is, doesn't do anything for International calls, which is where most of the automatically dialled "silent" calls are from now anyway!

Actually in that respect it is a bit like this site... you are on my block list, then for some reason it didn't block your last post, I didn't realise, then when I posted this, it blocked it when the screen refreshed! A bug I haven't seen before

Yes a serious flaw there, looks too expensive also another flaw this device plugs between your phone and socket what if you have 2 or 3 sockets in the house with 2 or 3 phones plugged into them does that mean you will need 2 or 3 of these units. So for that reason im out too.

You can record calls (legally!) by using Truecall's memory card. The machine time & date stamps the message and you can transfer them via a USB adapter to your PC. Great if you want to record nuisance calls or other types of calls for evidence. Maybe a limited market but that's certainly not something you can do with TPS.
#9
I call a lot of people in the USA. They have had this system for the past couple of years that I know of.
My number is withheld, so it tells me that the number I am calling does not accept these calls and I have to punch the number I am calling from into my phone and it notify s the person the other end. Or it asks me to say who I am and what company I am calling from. Then it connects me just like in the Dragons Den demo.
#10
very topical, I saw this tonight also ..... I think this works on the principle that the majority of cold callers reaching what is essentially a answering machine asking who they are would just hang up ..... which in my opinion helpful as that is if they ring at a inconvenient time, particularly if you work shifts then theyve still woken you up!

myself I just got a simple answer phone (that when I want it to speaks out loud) and recorded the message to ask who it is and answer any calls I want and ignore any I dont.

so for me its cold as I achieved essentialy the same thing significantly cheaper

(also we know from the show that each unit costs the retailer £55 so there is almost a £30 mark up on it even at this price!)

Maybe the original poster is the guy who went in to the Dragons Den and is advertising here on HUKD , ill give you 4000 degrees heat and rep in return for a 49% share in the units you sell through the link....

Worthwhile if it stabs the nuisance caller in the eye with a BBQ fork.

Seeing as this would require all phones to have a built-in BBQ fork, and they don't. this isn't worthwhile.

Well fortuantely, I get very, very few, and as I say TPS blocks 90% at least of marketing calls in my house, certainly not worth paying 83 quid for as far as I am concerned, if I had harrassment calls or needed call screening then maybe...but for the average person TPS is sufficient.

I love the idea of this device but give it a year and it will get build into most telephone answer phones, i cant see the apeal of a box inbetween your phone, just do what i do get caller id for free (bt and sky are free) and leave the answer phone on when it rings if its not a person i know the answer phone takes the call thats it.

If you know this person with a 'withheld' number, they can simply dial 1470 'before' they dial your number and that will unblock their number. If they call you straight from their phone's Address Book then they can save your number with the 1470 prefix. So no, it's not a 'serious flaw'.

Indeed, it's only software in the end, running on a box that otherwise shares telephone hardware. Putting it into the telephone itself is a logical step - modern home phones have processors and the like anyway, so it's just some software for the inventor to license. At least they'd make some money that way.

i have actually been called for the last 2 years by the same company asking for someone who does not live here and never did - a MR LAWRENCE LONGFORD, originally i told them to go away , they kept calling , then i said again he does not live here and they kept on coming , now i have told them that he died and guess what ...they still call .... i have now resorted to answering the phone and telling them to hold on whilst i get him back from the dead to talk to them (honestly these idiots still call back and hang on), i keep them holding wasting their phone bill for like 30 minutes.....

Good one. I like to wind em up by babbling nonsense. Last time I had an unsolicited call from an Indian call centre, I was saying "Isn't the moon lovely tonight, what do you mean jam? I never asked for purple pickles." Eventually they hang up and never call back :-D

My sister on the other hand tried singing nursery rhymes to them. Unfortunately they thought it was so funny they got all their call centre colleagues to call back for another rendition for the next week or two! Major backfired!

Hold on a minute think your missing the point if someone you dont want to phone you say a callcentre withholds there number which they do, then every time they phone you with this device then it will ask the caller there name, then your phone rings tells you its john from ocean finance who keeps phoning you so you reject the call, thats fair enough but you cant use the star function to stop this person phoning you because it wont know there number so every time they phone you, you will have to reject the call which is a waste of time.
#31
By law cold callers must display a telephone number the only problem is that cold calls are now coming from the usa so no number to display so no way of blocking it..........waste of money.
TPS best bet as previosly posted............or let the answere machine take the calls then if you want to speak to them just pickup the phone most cold calls hangup on silence after 6 seconds.........
#32
Helloooo...get more than five nuisance calls you can report them anyhow...besides, just pick it up and put it back down so the retards (or automated service) get billed for the call :-D

Save your £85 for something decent :p

Not sure I follow you there blaster.

My point is: If someone wants to speak to me but wants to withhold their number then they ain't gonna get through if I use this product as it'll block him/her. If they unblock their number using 1470 and I take the call then discover I don't ever want to speak to them again then I block their number. The system can block ALL callers that withhold their number so that isn't wasting any of my time.

so someone phones with a withheld number from a usa call centre you take the call and decide you want to block them how can this device block a withheld number, i think its a usefull idea but wouldnt pay extra for it but a feature in new phones coming out in the future.

Sadly, I can't see that being very succesfull as half of the callers don't speak english either. Let alone understand English words such as NO I DON'T, and the like. :whistling:

I just let them carry on with themselves while I put the kettle on... There have actually been times when I've come back and someone's still rabbiting away!

I'm considering making a recording on my old mp3 player... 25 seconds or so of the occasional "mmm" the odd "oh aye" and as a bonus "can you say that again" to see how long that keeps em going :p

So this is a big thumbs up for Dragons Den, and Telecoms guru Peter Jones...yet the general public just don't buy it oh dear.....Peter Jones...you're fired, go get a job at Amstrad.

Just watched this now on BBC IPlayer..

The cost price of the this was £27 from China with a wholesale figure of £55.00 with a RRP or £97.00, so i expect it will be less now compared to when it was filmed, and the profit margin seems a little too much on an item like this in my opinion,

If the cost of the item could get down to the £35.00 RRP price i think it may beworth a purchase.

Therefore cold in my eyes and im out......

I dont know why this is being voted cold, there is a company that keep calling me and wont tell me who they are just that they are from Leicester and are a money management company so this would be ideal and stop the idiots that constantly call me.
