What Is A Call Blocker And How Does It Work?The NTS Scams Team is supplying the trueCall Secure call blocker unit. A call blocker is a unit that filters unwanted scam or nuisance phone calls from your landline. You can watch some short animations on how the unit works here. The call blocker checks the caller's number. If it is a trusted caller then it allows the phone to ring as normal. If the caller isn’t recognised, then the call blocker acts as a personal assistant by intercepting the call and asking the caller to identify themselves. This process blocks around 95% of unwanted calls without the phone ever ringing. If you want even more protection, the call blocker can completely block calls from unrecognised callers with an automated message asking them to hang up and call a nominated person if their call is important. The unit plugs into an existing phone and phone line, it can work alongside broadband and/or lifeline/pendant devices that are already installed.

Further InformationThe unit will be installed and set up by a qualified engineer from QubeGB who will show you how to manage the unit's settings. At installation you will be asked to complete a short survey and consent form. The NTS Scams Team will contact the applicant at three months and six months after installation, to carry out another survey.

To find out if you (or someone you know) is eligible for a free call blocker to be fitted, please start the survey below. Please note we have a very limited number of units and they will be allocated on a first come first served basis.*

What Happens Next?You can apply for either yourself or someone else by completing a short online survey with their consent.Receive the call blocker (can take up to five working days) along with a welcome letter detailing how to arrange an installation date and time. The installation team, QubeGB will endeavour to install your unit within two weeks of arranging an installation date.Engineer arrives at the arranged date and time to install the call blocker and completes the installation survey and consent form.After three months and then again at six months, a member of the NTS Scams Team will contact the applicant to complete a short survey over the phone.
*There is no charge associated with obtaining a free call blocker. At no point will anyone contact you out of the blue from the project and request money. QubeGB will only contact you to arrange an installation date if you haven’t made contact within five days of receiving your call blocker in the post.

These are fantastic. I got one for a relative and it gives peace of mind that no unwanted callers get through and take advantage. We had to do a similar deal to get a free one and it was all very easy.
i wouldn’t let my relative be without one now.
This has got to be one of the best deals ever on this site
I saw this advertised on 'Farcebook' and they are only offering a limited number of blocker devices.

I've always found common sense and a football refs whistle next to the phone always works a treat...they start spouting rubbish...blow the whistle! they won't be phoning back again.

Got that trick from growing up in the 80s and the phone would ring, my mum used to answer....guy would start doing the old heavy breathing routine so my mum would blow the whistle full whack down the phone haha

Tragically that concept may encourage some phone pervs to keep calling.

For clarity: double entendre of the combination of whistle / blow / whack may be common practice rather than a fetish. But let's get back on topic...:
the Trucall system is incorporated into many landline devices; common in BT-branded landline handsets / base stations. Needs callerID on the line to function, but only user error will allow an unwanted call through. BT-branded devices with this feature start from under £20 wired or cordless, where the cordless can be used with most other BT or non-BT wired or some other cordless extensions.
