PN Phone - International Calls Pestilence


[link to this post]
 
I am getting an excess of "International" calls that are, one way or another, after my money. They are not answered as they come through on the CLI screen.

The last straw was one early this morning before I was fully awake. Speaking to PN it is apparently not possible to have all International calls blocked. I do know that they can be blocked on a "real" BT line.

Can anyone comment on this as it is so bad I may have to (with much regret) return to BT?.

It's not just PN Phone mate - I get AT LEAST 5 International calls per day and I'm with BT for my phone.

I have blocked incoming International calls but this hasn't made a difference. I can't remember the website I went on to do it but it was the offical one.

This happens on BT also.

We are all plagued by this as our phone #s have leaked to the whole wide world.

Don't blame PN and no point in returning to BT.

I eventually decided to get one of these. A tad expensive, but worth every penny

Can you post a link to that as I can't find the option listed anywhere and there are quite a few grumbles in the BT forums about it and I also suffer from it
All I could find was the ability to block number withheld calls but that still wouldn't stop international unknown calls

How does one do that? Linky?

Oh, I now see! BT can't block them but they know a device that can.

Then this device must be equally effective on a PN line, so there is still no point in returning to BT.

You ring BT and they do it for you.
