“Oh wow, a phone call! It’s coming to my mobile, so it must be something good!”
“Hello, Mr. or Ms. MakeUseOf reader, we’d like to tell you about the latest blah, blah, blah,” says the voice on the other side.
And you’re left wondering how to stop these annoying calls. The solution, though not a perfect one, is to get on the “Do Not Call” list for your country. It won’t stop the calls completely, as some companies just don’t seem to care, but it’ll help.
Here’s where you need to go for some of the countries we know read MakeUseOf regularly:
- United States: donotcall.gov
- United Kingdom: tpsonline.org.uk
- India: ndnc.net
- Canada: hlnnte-dncl.gc.ca/insnum-regnum-eng (French)
- Australia: donotcall.gov.au
Do you know of any places where there’s a “Do Not Call” registry? Let us know in the comments!
