telemarketing calls

Answered

How do I block numbers on my home phone, landline?  I am sick of receiving telemarketing calls and calls asking for donations.

I  feel your pain.

You can't block the numbers and they change each time.

It's a world wide problem.

I understand there is a Call Guardian handset where you can program in numbers you will accept.  Here is a link to the Telstra site where they are sold.

Buy yourself a Telstra Call Guardian 301 phone. Awesome piece of kit. We've gone from +10 calls a day to zero. Compatible with NBN as well.
