Annoying Phone Calls


I find it extremly annoying when telemarketers call my cell phone.. I mean why do buisnesses find it neccessary to sell my phone number? Just the other day i got a phone call from some woman that works on the
Barack Obama campaign and she wanted me to volunteer my time!! Like serioulsy, how did you get my number....?



I found this website where you can report phone numbers so others know that that particular number is either a scammer or an annoyancer. Phone Number Reporting allows users to comment about calls from certain numbers and let other users know what to expect from that number. Was it a sales call? Was it a wrong number? Check it out if you get those annoying phonce calls..... It could be helpful!

I know this is a terrible habit- but I screen my calls. I love caller id and if I don't recognize the number, I don't answer. I figure if it is someone who knows me or if it is important, they will leave a message. But it is still annoying. That site is interesting- I am going to have to check it out more!

if I don't know the number I don't answer the call, but they love to leave message... I'm so ready for the election to be over so we stop getting political calls

I have caller id. I will never go without it.

I checked the website out. It's kinda freaky if you do the reverse phone lookup or whatever.. you can type in someones phone number and get a whole bunch of information about them.. you can only get the info if you're a member.. but that's still freaky.

I get a double whammy cuz my home phone transfers to my cell phone when I'm not home. I feel your pain.

I know what you mean, I cannot stand it. I mean, you don't show up at people's door unannounced, so why is calling different?
