NO MORE Soliciting phone calls


After filing at least 15 DNC complaints against AIRC --with as many different numbers, call continued along with several other SCAMMERS. Phone Company couldn't stop them either-----These SCAMMERS are smarter then Phone company and DNC

I dropped the Land line and I haven't received a single call since
I am surviving quite well with cell phone, but I wonder how long it will be before they are allowed to abuse these.

Now I wonder if there is a use for my phone line home wiring??

I did that a long time ago, that stopped the bs instantly.

I did hook up a Magic Jack up in the house for those that I don’t want calling me on the cell, works out good.

Have to keep my land line. It's been my work number for 20 years.

Most alarm systems still need the land line, although I believe more and more are going wireless. I kept my land line in case of an emergency in a power outage (say z tornado). If the power is out, the cell tower will likely be down and you lose HHS ability to call emergency services. My solution to unwanted calls is that I don't answer the land line.

They make devices that hook to your phone lines and use bluetooth to allow you to use your cell phone from your home phone handsets.

These are nice since you likely have phones in several rooms of your house, so you can simply use them to make and recieve cell phone calls.

So as long as your cell phone is on and near the device, calls coming into your cell will make your house phones ring and you can make calls from your home extensions using your cell phone plan. Do a search for gigaset one or bluetooth gateway

Verizon Wireless has a plan that allows you to add a line and use your home number. I think that only adds $10 to your wireless plan.
