How do I reduce calls from telemarketers?

You can reduce calls from telemarketers using the following methods:

You can also use Block Unwanted Callers to eliminate calls from phone numbers you designate or use Accept Selected Callers to receive calls only from the numbers you specify.

Do Not Call Registry

Signing up for the national Do Not Call registry is an effective way to avoid telemarketing calls.

Telemarketers should not call your number once it has been in the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can notify them that you are on the Do Not Call registry. That stops most telemarketers from calling again. You also can file a concern on www.donotcall.gov.

To register a phone number on the Do Not Call registry:

  1. Go to www.donotcall.gov.
  2. Click Register a phone number.
  3. Follow the instructions on the site to register your phone number.
    • You must have an active email address to register online.
    • Your phone number stays on the registry permanently or until you change phone numbers.
