Since Fri 4th March 24/7 we are getting calls to our business line with "UNAVAILABLE out of area coming up on the caller id display.

BT say is an overseas auto dialer & they can do nothing

So we are getting these called every 5 minutes

TPS in place
Cannot barr them as no number to barr?

Help !!

At night we have to switch 1571 to answerphone ie no rings/ on answer.. as they continue through the night.

Any help gratefully received..

PS we do not want to change a well advertised & long standing Tel number

BT offer an all-or-nothing option of anonymous call reject option but it's chargeable and will also reject calls from places like your bank who routinely withhold their number.

Plus the service is chargeable as far as I'm aware.

Hopefully they will stop as quickly as they started, but as they are international calls, theres not a lot the telco can do.

If it does not stop, you could look at this gadget: http://www.truecall.co.uk/ - it basically screens all calls before your phone rings.

I use an Asterisk server which you can do similar functionality with depending on the callers incoming caller ID (or lack of it).
