New Sky Talk Shield says no to nuisance callers

[link to this post]
Sky Talk Shield will either block robot callers automatically before the phone rings, or let users listen to who’s on the line before they accept the call.

If it’s a person calling, the phone will ring and users will hear a recorded message with the screened caller’s name, so they know who it is. They then have the option to:

•accept the call for one time only,
•accept the call and add the caller to their personal Star List,
•reject the call and add the number to a Block List,
•send the call to their Sky voicemail (if they have it).

[re: BatBoy] [link to this post]
Thanks for the information. I signed up to it, and it seems to work exactly like the trueCall built into my phone (which is currently disabled), except it operates at a network level, so is beneficial for people with extension sockets. A nice service to have for free.

That said, the last tech support scammer who rang me changed their phone number for every call, so the block list would be ineffective for them. They may not bother with the "speak your name and press *" procedure though.
