I'm with Randall on this one. Don't call me and put me on hold.
There is a law in Indiana. Got on the no call list when they started it. Rarely do I get a telemarketing call anymore.

I got my husband a Telezapper for Christmas. It detects any computer generated telephone calls and sends them back a signal indicating that the phone number is disconnected. WE don't get a ring at all. All for $25.
Thanks goodness.

This is funny. Just the otherday I was watching telezapper advertisement on TV and I thought that probably it sends a very strong signal down the line that burns the storage device that has the phone number. i am glad that it is not so.
