    Default Unwanted phone calls...

    Recently when I was looking for some cheap insurance and energy suppliers it seems I gave my landline telephone number to search engines such as moneysupermarket or uswitch, etc. I always 'tick' I don't want to be contacted in any way by anybody but it looks like those services don't give a s... about my will.
    As a result I receive 4-5 phone calls from withheld numbers from claim/compensation companies and I get really annoyed of it. Is there anything I can do about it? What can I do to make those calls to stop?

    I was also thinking about buying a phone that can bar withheld numbers - do you know any brands/models?

    BTW - I'm with Tiscali.

    Any help very appreciated

    This will stop it, Takes a while to kick in though. If they still contact you they can be prosecuted I believe
