I once told a telemarketer from Eircom (Ireland's national phone company) that I'd love to "switch back" but we didn't have a phone. She apologised and hung up.

   If i am next to the phone i just let it ring and go onto 1571 then i see who it was and then call straight back if i have to.  I get local calls where for some reason they think i am a massage parlour for example .There have been other things like this but i cant remember exactly what they were.  One caller insisted that my number was theirs.I think they were an estate agents.I told them to change theirs as my number is my property.  I bought it off BT.   Anyway its not a big problem.  I am just going to hang up on them now.
