Terminating Call Manager
When you’re relaxing at home in the evening, you don’t want to be bothered by surveys, telemarketers or robocalls – not to mention scams! Terminating Call Manager from Midco screens your calls and blocks the ones you don’t want.
It's like a “No Soliciting” Sign for Your Phone
Despite the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Do Not Call Registry1, unwanted callers continue to find ways to bother you at home.
And while most legitimate companies don’t call you once your number is on the registry, advances in technology make it cheap and easy for scammers to hide from law enforcement and make illegal calls from anywhere in the world.
Terminating Call Manager is your first line of defense against:
- Auto dialers
- Polling services
- Scam artists
- And more!
How does it work?
When unwanted callers attempt to reach you, they hear, "The number you have reached does not accept calls from telemarketers. If you are a telemarketer, please add this number to your Do Not Call Registry and hang up now. Otherwise, please press 1 or stay on the line."
What about calls I want to get?
You don't want to miss automated calls from important contacts, such as your doctor's office and your child's school. Just add their auto-dial numbers to your allowed callers list (up to 25 numbers).
Can I block other unwanted callers?
Yes. To block a particular number from calling, simply dial *96 after the call is finished to automatically add the last caller's number to your blocked numbers list (up to 25 numbers). Any further calls from that number will be blocked.
