  • Go to []and register, I did this and I don't get any cold calls, only the occasional text message.

    To stop spam text messages, forward them to VSPAM (87726), this lets us block them at the network level and so far has been very successful. NB you need to be on Vodafone UK though for this to work.

    • You may also be able to get a service from your fixed-line phone company called 'Anonymous Call Rejection' - basically the same as what you would do with the CallerID box but it works as a network feature. I'm fairly sure that this service is an OFTEL requirement so all fixed-line providers should be able to offer it.
      • I was going to say that it's the landline that is the problem, not the mobile. But having said that I started receiving spam SMS messages last year. I'll look into the 'Anonymous Call Rejection' scheme though, thats sounds exactly like what we want.

        Cheers JJ :)
