As seen on Dragons' Den
Rid yourself of unwanted cold callers & nuisance callers politely and quickly.
TrueCall is your nuisance call blocker. It checks every call you receive before letting your phone ring. It connects your friends, family and invited callers straight through but stops all sorts of nuisance calls - telemarketing, silent calls, market researchers, calls from overseas call centres, fax calls, offensive or threatening calls, misdials, wrong numbers and recorded message calls.
trueCall is easy to use - just plug it in and go!
It has an integrated answering machine, and for the more adventurous, there are plenty of features that allow you handle calls exactly the way you want.
With trueCall every call is a true call.

Screen all unrecognised callers - Some people screen all their calls - they like to send all callers to their answering machine, listen to the message being left, and then only pick up if it is someone they want to talk to. trueCall goes one better than this - it allows Starred callers through, but screens all other callers.
Co-operation with your 1571 network voicemail service - If you have a 1571 network voicemail service (BT’s Call Minder, Answer 1571, etc.) it won’t be taking messages for you - trueCall’s Message Manager will be your primary answering machine. Network voicemail services do, however, have one special feature - they can take a message from anyone who calls you when you are already engaged on a call. trueCall has a unique feature to take advantage of this. A few moments after you hang up at the end of each call, trueCall checks your 1571 network voicemail service to see whether a message was left while you were engaged on your last call. If there is a message, it rings your phone to tell you that you have a new message, and gives you the option to listen back to it.
Call Screening - monitoring messages as they are being left - trueCall will announce all unrecognised callers. If you don’t want to speak to a particular caller, you can tell trueCall to send them to Message Manager to take a message. Call Shielding - If a call is Shielded, trueCall plays the Shield announcement after the personal greeting, but before the Whisper announcement. This says:- "If you are family or a friend please press 5, if you are a cold caller please hang up and don’t call us again" This is a default setting, you can record your own if you prefer. When they hear the Shield message, cold callers are legally obliged to hang up and to put you on their do-not-call list so that nobody from their company will call you again. Shield is an additional step for your friends who only call you occasionally, so it is turned off by default.
Anonymous caller reject - If you have Caller ID on your phone line, you can tell trueCall to reject all anonymous callers - all callers who withhold their calling number. WARNING: Anonymous Caller Reject is very effective at blocking malicious calls, but be aware that it may also block calls that you do want to receive. Doctors, hospitals, the Police, government organisations and many companies routinely withhold their numbers.
