1-800 or telemarketing calls

Postby bigfatalleycat » 05/09/2013

Hi All,

I have been on Fongo home phone since May 3rd and have not received a single call from a 800 number of any kind. Now I'm not complaining if it is an unwanted call such as a telemarketer but I was wondering if Fongo filtered these kind of of calls or is it just a fluke that I have not received any since switching?
By the way the switch was painless and my old number was ported on time as promised.
Thanks Fongo! :D

To get rid of telemarketing calls, register you phone to the "Do Not Call" list of the CRTC:

https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/index-eng

If you still get these type of calls 30 days after the registration date to the "Do not call" list, you can file a complaint to the CRTC.

I think he is actually asking FOR telemarketers to call :shock:

@AlleyCat Fongo does not filter such calls, so you must have just been lucky.

Guess I am lucky then!! I had already previously registered for the Dnc list but a few still seem to get by. Thanks for the responses!

ust got it set up your way - Rogers modem works in the bridge mode. Linksys E4200 plugged into it, two Fongo lines plugged into the E4200. Thanks!
