if someone's phone line is on BT rental then the TPS doesn't apply to them.
Eh? BT even offer TPS as part of BT Privacy at Home. TPS works for me.

It doesn't apply to companies of which you are a customer. Though many have opt-outs from marketing and "other information which you may find useful blah blah etc. etc".

You may have noticed that many of the opt-out/ins don't mention the company itself though. Only subsidiaries/associated and so on.

The main ignorers these days seem to be the "your computer has a virus" type. Others are fairly rare but not absent.

I have had a few calls from companies that I am a customer of. I politely tell themnot to call in future and ask for their line manager, I take a recording and finally state any more calls and I will take my business elsewher. This always stops the calls, permanently.

But they are not entitled to call me unannounced at times that are inconvenient for me, they are invading my privacy and I will answer them as I please in my own home, they are uninvited and unwelcome, I do the same to anyone who calls at the door as well. If I want a service or wish to buy something then I set the process up no one else.

Who's Fred? I am retired and I still don't need people pestering me day and night on the phone trying to sell me things I don't want, need or can afford. If I need anything I go and buy it on my own terms. No one worried about me being out of work because comapnies went out of business and they didn't care if they never bought anything of me as a milkman relying on commission, so I don't worry about the problems of people trying to make a living by annoying me and causing me inconveniance in MY OWN home.

I agree with every single word. My home should be my sanctuary.

May I ask is one of the companies that has done this to you IDnet? Because I need to switch providers.

PS I also now have a no zendesk policy.Any company that sends their stuff through them & stores my info (including phone call recordings) in the USA with them. I stop using.

iDNet are unlikely to be involved in cold calling. More likely is that the call centre doing it has a list of numbers and they go through them one by one. The fact they're based in India means they're immune to the caller preference service.

Also if they're using VOIP it's relatively easy to spoof a number such that it appears to originate within the UK despite the call centre being based in India or just about anywhere.
