I am sure everyone have been irritated by telemarketing calls to their mobile phones.
* especially the roaming charges incurred when overseas.

What I will personally do to counter these telemarketing calls :
1. any call that was identified as telemarketing calls will be saved with contact name "Block".
2. all these "Block" contacts will be marked "reject all calls", so that my mobile phone will block their future calls and will not ring.
3. all contacts will be linked to google account, and transferred to the next phone when upgrading handset.


The next step is online [MCF] sharing of these "Block" telemarketing nos, so that the "blockage" can be widened.
- example :
12345678 - abc insurance
45678901 - cde spa
etc.....
- would the online [MCF] sharing/posting be allowed ?

What I find annoying most are SMS from property agents. If you are one and is reading this. FXXK YOU! biggrin.gif
These mofos not only spam ppl's mobile phones they also create a lot of unnecessary paper waste at ppl's doorstep.

I know there's an iphone app iBlacklist that will block these mofos SMS but the phone needs to be jailbroken and the app cost $12.99, Sucks right?

I am using android phone [Motorola Razr].
- go to Phonebook/Contacts/People.
- just for trying, select 1 contact, click menu/edit.
- check with "reject all calls" is listed in the options. Select this option. [my previous Motorola Milestone do not have this option]

* test by add 1 nearby phone to your Contacts, put on "reject", try calling your mobile phone with that particular phone and see what is the outcome.

For android or any phone, the best way is not to pick up.

If in yr blurry state of mind you do pick it up, if PRC on the other line; switch to english. For Pinoy; switch to Mandarin. For Indian; switch to your dialect group. This method shd work fine. Tested & proven.

I use the blocker feature in GO SMS and add keyword filters like <ADV>, unsub, etc. Works pretty well to block property agent or other ads.

If the SMS blocked by the filter is something you want to receive, just go to blocked messages and restore the message and check an option to no longer block this sender.

For calls, just long press the number in call log and add to reject list.

Sometimes I answer call and hear PRC/Pinoy/etc, I will say hello.. hello... HELLO... (while they busy talking in the background) then hang up. None of them call back.

Some more professional telemarketers from bank, financial or insurance will ask whether it's a good time to talk, I just simply reply no and keep quiet. They will say they call back later and I will simply reply thank you. None call back as well laugh.gif

Great idea.
I am using an Android phone and I have downloaded a free software called "Call Filter". Once a number is added, in fact it has the "add last incoming number feature", future calls from that number will be rejected immediately, that party will not even hear any ringtone.

Here's the list:

6305 1084

I am using Starhub, and with free incoming local calls, I am ok with these telemkt calls.
When overseas, it is the roaming charges that would be incurred, which they don't care, they just want to promote their products to you.
