What I do to avoid telemarketers

Don't Call Me

For my land line, I have bought this phone system at Staples for about $100: AT&T CL84207 DECT 6.0 Expandable Corded/Cordless Phone with Answering System & Smart Call Blocker, Silver/Black with 2 Handsets. Its built-in software blocks telemarketing calls, but also allows you to whitelist friends by asking them their name and to hit #.

On our cell phones we did two things. First I downloaded the free ringtone: Silence. I then made it my default ringtone. I gave all people and businesses I don’t mind hearing from a sounding ringtone. Look on YouTube on how to install a new ringtone on your cell phone. So that telemarketers can’t even get that far, I got the app from AT&T to protect my phone from fraudulent calls. Their software selection here works on both iPhones and Android system cell phones.

California net neutrality bill bends to telco, cable wishes
Senate bill 822 was approved by the senate energy, utilities and communications committee mid-April, 2018, on a party line vote, with the condition that undisclosed changes, negotiated behind closed doors, would be made. Those amendments were finally released, and the result is fewer net neutrality enforcement options.
