Just use Truecaller app - TPS are toothless these days as people have rightly pointed out about locations of call centres

Well be it you like tps or not this thread has certainly been good for other helpful apps etc that help achieve something we can all agree is an annoyance to put it politely

I've a galaxy s8 and it tells you if a number us dodgy if one does call you. It gives you an option to press block and that's it. This seems like a lot of work in comparison. Having to answer and explain yourself, no thanks! Really dont get this at all. You can even get apps to block all these numbers outright.

They are a waste of time. We've been registered with TPS for years and hasn't made that much difference to the cold andspam calls we get.

Taken from the website "Registering with the TPS, however, does not prevent spam text messages."

Costs depending on your network provider, therefore not free. Found out the hard way!

Bloody useless company waste of time.

they even spread your details forward... oO

TPS Telephone Preference Service

I'm sure some people already know about this service but for those who don't you can opt here to stop nuisance calls.

The TPS used to just need the address to send a confirmation letter (thats when i worked there).

Doesnt make much difference. I have been registered for many years and still get countless cold calls. These b*****d cold calling marketing organisations that should be checking this dont and wont and will just call regardless. They are are a bit like the government....you can vote for any party you wish but the Government will always get in anyways.

Why is nobody mentioning the 5 digit number that charges to send this text? If it doesn't even do anything to take your number off call lists, isn't it just an easy money maker?

I ask them how they got my number & if they can remove my details from their list. They usually give me some abuse or try to continue the conversation - the amount of time these calls waste is annoying! I registered with this service a long time ago - do I need to re-register?

If you mean the call blocking device, they can be disabled through dialing a code (the truecall can actually be set to allow everything at night etc)
I'm waiting on a reply from nhs wales and South Wales police as to weather their numbers still come up as witheld
I'll report back as soon as I get an answer

Looks Very Good.

Significant differences though is that Truecall blocks, sends to answer phone, has a dial through (for people using a different phone number), allows web control, allows you to see who's been calling and how often, doesn't ring or make any noise at all for ANY unsolicited numbers, has time of day blocks etc etc.

The main thing is that my Dads phone only rings from approved people ( he can't deal with nuisance callers, even pressing the button ) but I can also see who's been calling and add them to his approved list if needed so he doesn't miss calls. On the latest one you can even programme the machine with a carers number, such as "if this is an important call then ring his son on ********** "

I would never have believed I would be happy spending £100 on an answer phone, but if this broke I'd order one tomorrow for him.

I like both machines, horses for courses

I have tried to include an example of the web call breakdown, fingers crossed.

We only had to say that we do a tps check every 6 weeks so we should pick up on it then! but as for online forms your the mug because all your doing is giving your permission for load and loads of spam mind you I bet you dont get any of that either X)gotta be a bit dumb to put your real telno on any web form

I've been on this for years too but still get the so called silent calls - the voice activated carp that drives me insane. Asked Virgin to stop the number but they couldn't help. Instead they put me onto a website which claims to be able to stop them. It didn't. The only advice I'd give is to accidentally transpose 2 digits of your telephone number when filling in forms. Works better than any filter service

Signed up, thanks. I don't tend to get these calls anyway (lucky I guess) but it's good to know i'm on the list.

exactly. unreal how some people vote this cold.

If its not for you, move on. It will certainly hope those who arent silly enough to put their real telnos into online competitions lol

If you follow the following steps you will soon stop getting cold calls (doesn't work with recordings)
Me - Hello
Caller - Is that Mr Smith/Jones/Archer etc
Me - No, but I will go and get him for you

You then place the handset next to the phone and go back to whatever you were doing.
Go back to the phone after 15mins and there will be noone there
