*60 call block is useless - WHY?

[ Edited ]

What is the point of call blocking if you can't block the calls you want to block, i.e. Telemarketers from outside your area? I don't want to have to be on a do not call list, and I think I have the right to be free from harassing phone calls every day. Why is this not available? Why has this not been legislated if that's the issue?

I love the do not call list and so glad they started this.  As soon as I signed up when it came out I stopped receiving all those calls.  I get maybe 4 calls a year and that is charity donations but no other junk at all.    Mary

I've never heard of *60, what is that?  And I agree with the previous poster, if you do not want to be bothered by telemarketers then make sure to get yourself on the do not call registry (www.donotcall.gov).

*60 might not be available in all areas or it may be an old, discontinued product.  I have worked as a Customer Service Rep for 10 years and never heard of it.

I am in Buffalo NY and I remember years ago we could get it I think but you paid like $5 a month for it.  I know I have always heard about but never had it.  Mary
