Pls stop call my children !

My daughter has a contract phone, well its in my name with my contact details. However you phone her multiple times a day to renew contract. We dont want to renew becuase of the great deal we have.

Pls stop harassing a 15 year girl.

 

Thanks

Re: Pls stop call my children !

This is annoying, but it's the same with all mobile companie. If the phone contract is in your name, how are Virgin Sales meant to know it's actually a 15yo and not you?

I would just block all VM sales calls and blocked numbers on the handset - job done. Also advise your daughter to block all sales calls/recorded sales calls ("our records show you were in a car accident") whenever she gets them. Sadly, it's probably the only way nowadays...

Just another VM user trying to help, so no guarantees that my advice will work .

Re: Pls stop call my children !

Hi space_cowboy,

 

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 telesales/marketing calls.

If you have an Android phone, go into the call logs. Select the number, tap the three dots in the top right hand corner, Add to Autoreject list (that's for Android 5, other versions may vary).

She has a excellent DooGee X6 Pro and we dont seem to have this option to reject calls. Might have to look at a third party app.

Re: Pls stop call my children !

There are a couple of apps with similar names. Which developer is your version?
