1 is too many and I get way more than that! They are enough to drive you crazy!

THAT is why the dialers question got my answer - I hate it being done to me and therefore, I would never do it to others!

We can either encourage others to put an effort in creating havoc(disruption), market dominance(or anythng else that is "never before available...") OR put our heads into the sand like an ostrich(ignore errr disconncect).  Sometimes it's best to NOT be concerned about such things.

Will, services like cloudphone delete most unwanted and crank calls. You get a transcript of calls in your email/text so hitting the occasional delete key is all that's required for any unwanted calls.  Sales calls  - Gone!!  
Just be careful with the service you choose - test them out with trial periods.

In Canda, you can opt out of receiving sales calls unless you give consent and if you continue to receive phone calls after you OPT out there could be serious fines.

Remove your telephone number from all marketing.

Use only your broker office number if a number is REQUIRED.

Be aware MANY business thrive even though they FORCE customers into a no direct contact situation.

I warn, take great care regarding what you wish for. The final solution is your ONLY contact to the consumer will be through Zdevil.

I for one do not mind getting calls from those trying to make a living. I'm a big girl and know what to do and don't take offense of inherit the feeling of transgression.

I get lots of sales calls. On my cell and on my home phone. Rarely are they real estate sales calls. Mostly about qualification for student loans, forgiveness of student loan debt, credit card debt forgiveness, reducing my electric bill (solar equipment sales), my business being unable to be found on Goggle, golf course tee maker advertising, super market shopping cart advertisint, sometimes in Spanish (which I do not speak), sometimes in Chinese (I guess it is Chines since I don't speak that either), sometimes there is nothing there when I pick up, sometimes a human on the other end - after I ignore the call and my machine answers - says "Hello! Hello! Any one there?", and on and on.

For the most part, I simply ignore them. If I don't recognize the caller, I just don't answer.

I have no time to count those calls. What do you think anyone can do about it? When we call someone, it's essentially a "sales" call... do we want those whom we call asking what can be done to stop us?
