If you have a cell phone, you will get calls from pollsters, telemarketers, politicians, etc. eventually. My wife has one and those calls went from none to just as many as on our land line. An answering machine does wonders for most of them as they generally just hang up when they get the answering machine response. We have advised all our friends and relatives not to caller id info block or if they do, leave a message. After a while you get used to the phone ringing and do not automatically run to answer it.

“If you have a cell phone, you will get calls”

We’re on the “No Call” list. In 5 years, we’ve maybe gotten 3 calls where my husband has told them such and threatened to sue if they called again. I can rely on my phone ringing once a week when the gardeners show up so I know to confine my German Shepherd. Land lines, cable, newspapers= dinosaurs.

Is the cell related to your landline? I ask this because I’ve never had calls from telemarketers or political people on my cell.
