AT&T is the worst. I know I get about 1 call a day from them. I already have their phone service and internet service. I don't want the satelite service and have told them that many times. But the next day the phone rings, and its AT&T again. I am on the do no call list, but I don't think anyone checks it because they just keep calling.

SO JUST SAY YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED. THESE PEOPLE ARE RIDICULOUS. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE NOT TO MENTION BUSINESSES THAT RELY ON TELEMARKETING FOR THEIR SOUL SOURCE OF INCOME ATLEAST THESE PEOPLE THAT TELEMARKET ARE NOT LIVING OFF OF YOUR TAX DOLLARS. MANY PEOPLE EMPLOYED IN THIS FIELD ARE LOW LEVEL TYPE EMPLOYEES WITH NO EDUCATION OR REAL OTHER CHOICES WHEN IT COMES TO EMPLOYMENT WELFARE WOULD BASICALLY BE THE NEXT STEP. YOU PEOPLE PROPOSE WE PUT THEM AND AREA BUSINESSES OUT OF WORK BECAUSE IT IS INCONVENIENT FOR YOU TO ANSWER THE PHONE!! IF THIS IS EVERYONES BIGGEST WORRY HERE IN FLORIDA NOT TO MENTION THE UNITED STATES AS A WHOLE YOU ARE MISSING SOMETHING. TAXES ARE RISINF INSURANCE IS UNAFFORDABLE AND YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT PAYING 3.95 DOLLARS PER MONTH FOR A CALLER ID BOX. PUT YOUR EFFORTS WHERE THEY BELONG AND PERHAPS WE AS FLORIDIANS WOULD NOT BE IN THIS POSITION. STOP FILLING TALLAHASSEES PLATE WITH THIS NONSENSE SO THEY CAN GET TO THE REAL ISSUES. WE ARE LOSING REVENUE WITH BUSINESSES PULLING OUT OF FLORIDA PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO MOVE HERE BECAUSE OF HURRICANES AND EXPENSES STATE TAX WILL BE NEXT SPEND THE 3 BUCKS AND WISE UP.
Even if it is their only source of business, calling a minor on the phone during school hours is still wrong, and disturbing people at work is still wrong. That's why I have basically stopped carring if they call my house phones, but now they've moved on to cell phones. Which should be illegal to do so. And on top of that 1 to 3 calls a week from telemarkers i don't care about but I get about 5 a day from nothing that has to do with me. That is exessive and thats why telemarketers have become a nuisance.

Being a fairly new resident, I attempted to be understanding, when I began to receive numerous telephone solicitations each night. After now being a resident over a year, I have found that the calls have not decreased despite my informing each caller to take me off their call list. I then decided to see what Florida had to offer in the way of a Do Not Call List. I was astonished that Florida is so impoverished that it must charge for this service. Does anyone know for what the money collected is then used? I have lived in Texas, Ohio, Massachusetts and New Hampshire and to my knowledge they still do not charge for such a list.

Just say NO does not work on a Go Phone. You pay for every call whether you answer it or not and it also charges you to look at your messages just to see if it is from someone you know. I went with the Go Phone because I only needed it for special ocassion as I am retired and mostly stay at home and I am financially challenged. I only use when I go out somewhere. So far I have bought $25.00 worth of minutes. I have used approximately $2.00 worth. The rest has been used up by telemarketers. Now if I want to use the phone I have to buy more minutes because these idiots have used up my time. Does anyone want to buy a Go-Phone. I don't think I want to buy any more minutes just for the telemarketers.

The people who do this can get another job. I hated it because it would either wake me up (I am on medical retirement.) Having a meal.
You don't have to pay Florida go to:
federal do not call list:
https://www.donotcall.gov/
If your called 31 days after being placed on this list you can file a complaint at the same site.
