Another way to prevent calls from those pesky telemarketers is to add a feature called call block. Call block allows you to either enter a code after receiving an unwanted call that blocks that number in the future or to select up to a certain number of callers whose numbers are to be blocked.
This feature is useful if you have a caller who is harassing you or a frequent telemarketing call that you no longer want to receive.
The callers on the other end receive a polite, but firm message telling them that you are not receiving calls from their number.
This can be a great time and hassle saver, and is available from most phone services at a slight additional charge.
