Call Blocking

MotheCat
Just Moved In

Why does Telus not call block or give their customers call block tools? There are call block units for sale that block up to 1500 unwanted calls, so why can Telus not create this in their system for its customers to use. For example a lot of spam calls come from India, so why can Telus customers not choose to block all India area codes automatically if they wanted this?

Telus needs to get moving on this for if they don't they will lose a lot of landline customers.

Ten to 20 telemarketing calls a day is just too much.

Wake up Telus!!!

A perusal of the other discussions on this topic will likely answer your question. However, the short answer is that a caller can spoof any number they wish, or use a re-dial service to circumvent call blocking.

Telemarketers don't care which carrier you are with. Switching carriers and keeping your old number will do nothing. They'll still call you. If you are going to change something then change your phone number. I get less than 1 telemarketing call a month.
