I can’t remember how many years it’s been since I ditched my landline, but it’s a decision I haven’t once regretted. Not only does it save me money, but I’ve almost never gotten unsolicited calls on my cell phone. If you still have a landline and have issues with unsolicited calls, or collection calls, you might be interested in the Easy Hang-Up.
Yes, hanging up your phone is already pretty easy, but this little device does a bit more than that. You plug it into your phone, and run the line through this device. Then, when you get a call from a company that you don’t want, just press the button and hang up your phone. The person on the other end will hear an automated message (one comes pre-recorded, or you can make one yourself) asking them to take you off of their calling list, and then hangs up. For $19, it can save you a bit of hassle, and hopefully prevent future calls that you don’t want.
