Works for me (and many others) and eliminates the nuisance factor

TPS gives very patchy results.

I still used to get up to half a dozen a week, sometimes more.

I now use TrueCall.

That really is 100% effective.

Unfortunately the TPS has no jurisdiction over Overseas calls.

There are/were a few regular ones that I have blocked locally via my new Panasonic phone. Lovely new Panasonic feature that you can set up to 20 barred numbers providing they come up on Caller ID :)

I'm registered with TPS but still get an average of 5 calls a week from either withheld or international numbers. These calls are almost always during the day so don't get answered as I'm at work.
Very occasionally a call goes to answer machine so I get a message "press 9 for instant dial back", which of course I most definitely don't do.

Once in a blue moon I get these calls during the evening so I have the pleasure of slamming the phone down on these pests.

TPS is entirely toothless against international phone spam, and now these calls are incredibly cheap using either spare satellite capacity or VOIP services I can only see an increase in these nuisance calls...
