Re: 0800 number

Hi craigmurray,

enlli makes a very suggestion.

I have an android device and I downloaded a free app from the Play Store called "Calls Blacklist"
(there are others but I find this simple and effective).

It's great for blocking all sorts of marketing calls.

Re: 0800 number

Hi craigmurray17,

you only asked to opt out of marketing calls today.

Have a little patience, it'll take a while for your preference to filter through VM's systems.

While you are waiting for the number to be removed check if your phone has the ability to auto reject calls. If so add the number to the black list

I tend to just put the numbers into a "Spam" contact and then set it to a silent ringtone. I can do this because I don't use my phone that much, and not at all during the day (mobiles not allowed in the office).

The advanage of this method, if you can do it, is that it keeps the caller occupied waiting for you to answer. All the time they waste doing that, they are not hassling someone else.

Re: 0800 number

A lot of phones you can click on the phone number then in top corner touch the 3 dots then touch the add to auto reject list i think it says, don't know what phone you have but worth a look.....

It will take up to 28 days for your details to clear from the marketing database, until then you may still receive the odd call from the various marketing VM numbers, but the amount of calls should be noticeably less from the point of request being made.
