children / wives serve just as effective nuisance call blockers...

Still way tooo high a price for me, for the benefits it delivers.

As it stands, with BT, you can get free caller display and some of these benefits for nothing -

BT Privacy at Home registers you with the Telephone Preference Service to decrease the number of sales calls you receive. It also adds the Caller Display feature to your telephone service to show the numbers of those calling, if you have a compatible phone.'

not voting either way, I'll just stick with the free services from BT for now.

"Zap any nuisance caller who disturbs you"

Really?! actually zap them... or is this a figure of speech?

its 83.30 less 3.75 discount

So what does this actually do and how does it work?

To answer my own question -

How does trueCall work? When a call arrives, trueCall immediately checks the caller's number. If it recognises them as a friend or a member of the users family (the number is on their Star list), it lets them through as normal. If the caller's number is on the users personal Zap list - a list of numbers of telemarketers or other nuisance callers trueCall answers the call itself, and politely tells the caller that they're not interested in the call - their phone never rings! If trueCall doesn't recognise the caller's number, or the caller withholds their number, it asks them who they are, puts them on hold and only then rings the users phone. When the user picks up, trueCall tells them who's calling, and they can choose whether to accept the call, get TrueCall to take a message, or Zap the caller (in which case trueCall takes over, asks them to go away, and puts them on its Zap list so they cant disturb the user again!). At any time during an incoming call the user can press the star button on their phone ( * ) to put the caller onto their Star list. NB: Caller ID subcription with service provider is required.

Then you are lucky, as I am registered with TPS and still get calls once a week for rubbish.

Unfortunately a lot of cold callers do not bother to check the TPS list. But even then a polite "No thank you" is a lot cheaper!
