    Thanks MCC - just the ideal product so I've just bought one!

    You aren't on commission are you? Lol

    Not on commission but always happy to pass on any useful info. The call blocker has been a real boon and mum takes great pleasure in pressing the 'block now' button when she gets an unwanted call. Just one thing I should have mentioned you do need 'caller display' activated by your provider for this to work properly. Hope it works out for you Lighttouch.

    Hi MCC, the blocker turned up last night from Amazon. I've not opened the box to read the instructions yet but thanks for the tip. I'll take and install it at mum's today all being well and it's not too soon!

    I've just noticed that a 'digital electronics company that has links with Sky TV have taken £150 from her bank account 2 days ago!! I've been on to their customer service to complain and ask for a refund.

    Hi Lighttouch I found the user guide that came with the unit difficult to read - there is a pdf version I'm not sure how to attach it on here but the filename is CPR-202-USER-GUIDE.pdf.

    An update to this old thread.
    Text TPS and your email address to 85095 to register your mobile phone. It will take a month to become fully operational but it does work.

    A polite but firm "Go forth & multiply" works very well.

    I use either that one (but shortened to two words), or ask if their mum knows what they do for a living and is proud of them? or ask if they've considered getting a job with a better social standing? like say giving fatal diseases to blind orphans and kittens?

    I have too much time on my hands to be honest
