More easily ignore unwanted calls to your iPhone
Authored by: kiltbear on Jun 27, '13 10:35:11AM

This has actually worked to eliminate nearly all unwanted calls for me:

Answer the call, politely interrupt the person and say the magic words: "Please put me and this number on your do not call list"

They say thank you very much and that it may take two weeks to become affective, and then they hang up. Any other response is apparently illegal.

In the UK this is not in the least bit effective despite all the legislation...as these companies just ignore the request. Worse still once they have confirmation that the number is answered the number is then sold onwards to other cold callers. Not helped by the fact that by large corporates (namely insurance companies), and allegedly even government departments and the police also "sell on" contact details to these companies.
