Telemarketer Call Screening is an optional call feature designed to prevent calls from live telemarketers as well as ALL robo-dialed or automated calls. When the feature is turned on, all incoming calls initiate the recorded announcement: "This number does not accept telemarketer calls. If you are a telemarketer, put this number on your DO NOT CALL list. If you ARE NOT a telemarketer, press 1." When the caller presses '1', the call is released to ring through on your line, and that number is automatically added to your ALLOW list.
IMPORTANT NOTE: While this feature prevents unwanted robo-dialed or automated calls such as from telemarketers and political parties, IT WILL ALSO prevent robo-dialed or automated calls communicating wanted messages, such as school closings, doctor appointment reminders, etc. To make sure you get these important calls, you may contact these entities and change your contact number to your cell number. Or, you can add the phone number they use for automated messaging to your ALLOW list.
