    Not that this will help you out, but a lot of telemarketing companies have an electronic device rigged to a computer that will dial numbers automatically just to see when you are most likely to answer the phone. When the phone is picked up, the computer will record the time, hang up, and dial the next number. The list generated by the computer then puts all the peoples' numbers in order by time most likely to answer for the actual telemarketers. Apparently, it makes the actual telemarketing more efficient.

    Great way to bother us, isnt' it? *rolls eyes*

    My solution, if the caller ID is someone/thing that I don't recognize, the phone does not get answered.
