@bluewhale 

The way to stop them is to buy a phone that includes the BT True Call guardian feature.

You could try PlusNet Call Protect.

Yeah, a BT advance phone works. I got one on eBay for about £35 I think. The phone companies don’t want to or care about doing anything about it.

Re: daily vishing and similar calls

if a piece of hardware by BT works over what now is a virtual network, then why doesn't the plusnet software version work as well, can someone explain what the difference is, otherwise i can only conclude that the operators are exploting us for more money for a security situation of their making
