We used to get them too. That ended when we gave up our landline. I guess they don't have a cell phone directory... yet.

No cell service here either, but our son got something he calls a "network extender". It works off a GPS signal and our DSL router, and we have cell service when it's turned on. Which is only when our text-aholic son is home! Off-grid power...he can't leave it on unless he's using it.

And yes, the robo-calls are a Pain!

Right now everyone who calls my home number knows that I am screening calls and if they really need to talk to me they call the cell number.
I get about 3 to 4 a day of those darn calls! I don't even run to the phone anymore to look at the number!
And right now i really need to use the phone as I am in charge of the Drama club's Costume Guild and have to call and take calls from the other ladies who are helping make all the costumes for Robin hood!

I haven't gotten 'robo-calls' in awhile, but do get calls want to sell me a service. I am on the state and Federal "Do Not Call" lists - fat lotta good that is...... :eek:
Yesterday had my phone company call - I knew they had a 'service' to hawk. Yep - phone bundled with satellite TV. Told the lady I had no use for it. She asks why? I told her I have not watched TV in nearly a year - I even disconnected the danged converter box! She sighed - she knew she'd just lost a sale..... BWAHAHAHA!!!!! :D

Ya - the telephone company keeps calling me telling me about their "NEW" service - Television through the telephone-line. I ask them if it comes with a TV-set.

Silence

"Umm, no."

"Well" I say, "If you don't give me a TV, I can't subscribe to your service due to the fact that I don't have a TV in the house."

"When do you plan on replacing your TV?" is the question from the other side of the line.

"I got rid of it close to ten years ago" I say, pause for that to sink in then continue, "and I have no plans on ever replacing it."

I hear the crickets chirping.

"Umm. Thank you for your time." Click.

Maybe I am twisted but I get a kick out of screwing with telemarketers.

I try to sell them my car and they reply "I don't want your car" then I say well I don't want your S#$t but it didn't stop you from calling me at dinner time.

Or I tell them I was on hold with the suicide hotline on the other line and start telling them my problems.

Or my favorite if it is another guy ask in a sultry voice " what are you wearing"?

If you can't stop them have fun with them....
