I wish I had bought this a year ago.
on 8 December 2011
This device is absolutely brilliant. I would get Indian call centres ringing me from everything from selling me credit cards to insurance claims and at most was getting 30 calls a day thanks to AOL, everytime I complained about something I seemed to get another Indian call centre harrassing me, in total I received calls from 11 different companies.
I tried to get these calls barred but did not have any success. I had for the last few months actually switched my ringer off so I wouldn't have to hear the my phone ringing all the time.
This call blocker has worked immediately, When I saw the number I just pressed the call block, usually when I hang up on these people they just ring back constantly until I answer and hear all of their sales pitch and I waited for them to ring back and 3 days later still no call from them. I only wished I had given them a piece of my mind before I blocked them permanantly.
I see from some reviews that people have said that this blocker does not work on their phones, I have a cordless Panasonic dect phone and my caller ID is displayed on my phone and not my base unit, and would like to explain a bit about this device.
This call blocker has 2 line socckets, LINE 1 and LINE 2 and on the other side of the device is 2 telephone sockets, TEL 1 and TEL 2. First you put the appropriate cables in the LINE 1 and TEL 1. If this does not work, like it did not for me, you put the appropriate cables in the LINE 2 and TEL 2 sockets and this should work as it did for me. It is important that you do not mix the sockets, i.e LINE 1 with TEL 2. I have not had any problems with my caller id not working or anything else that has been mentioned in the negative reviews.
Do not give your money to your call providers to block nuisance calls as it is them who sell your information to these companies for money so their not going to stop their revenue and on top of that they make money from their customers whilst not actually doing anything about the problem.
