the Star/number feature that allowed customers to block up to 12 repeat offending telemarketing callers WAS IDEAL for those of us being HARASSED with one to two calls a day by corrupt scams!
604 296 3233 IS ONE OF THEM, and reported by many on the internet to be a criminal outfit trying to con ppl into info and cash surrender as 'debt collectors'.
I get a min. of 1 to 2 calls a day from these scum, and see that what Telus chose to do was DROP the feature and instead force customers to tell all their friends a secret code to get around an AI voice.
Thats sickening. Thats punishing the CUSTOMER and causing potential loss of calls from any innocent party who DID NOT get the secret code. That feature is USELESS in my books. BRING BACK SPECIFIC BLOCK, and dont go making it a 'premium feature'. We know you still make money from marketing scams as they are forced to use your systems to do it, and forget the DNC list, it inCREASED the number of spam callers.
