Thanks never knew that. I only get phone calls when I am under the mog in the shower or at the loo . The amount of times I have stepped out of the shower and done business on the phone naked must be a lot . Oh hell just reminded me I have an add in miscellany next month no not selling my big end bearings you are out of luck . innocent



Jack we have that & if you want you can switch it off on your internet account page. We love it but the only downside is if people who haven't been approved before call and you are out. In that case the answer phone won't work. [/quote]

Peter the dawn of Internet Telephony have made the presentation of local numbers easy sadly. There are large network carriers which offer telephony break out from the Internet in 100's of countries with local numbers you can choose from. It makes it harder to spot them. They offer cheaper rates allowing more spam calls as well.

One step forward, two steps backwards.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Talk Talk are very good about helping out with unwanted calls. I have a number to key in which forever bars that number, they also have something like the BT Call Gard however, it's ironic that most of my unwanted callers say they are from Talk Talk. I usually ask them what my acct. number is or better still I sound all excited saying I really would like to speak to them but could they hang on whilst I turn the kettle off. I then put the 'phone next to the radio and let them try their hand at Pop Master.
I expect they score more than I do !! oldgit


Here for a good time not a long time!!
