A drop dead simple lifehack for never answering a telemarketer twice, which I’ve been using for years.
- Create a contact named Telemarketer in your phone.
- Get a call from a telemarketer, and you more ore less politely tell him or her that you are not interested in buying anything.
- Every time a new telemarketer calls you, you add their number to that contact.
So if a telemarketer calls from the same number again, it shows up at Telemarketer and you simply don’t answer.
If you like, you may also set a custom ringtone for that contact.
Simple and works on most phones.
