Log on to your Telus account to order the "Call Screen" feature. This feature intercepts all calls from a list of preselected phone numbers you can add to your account. Whenever the unwanted caller dials your number, he will hear the recording, "The number you are trying to reach is not accepting calls at the moment."
While in your Telus account, look up the "Call Display" feature on your account page. If you don't find it, call 611 from your Telus phone to speak to a customer-service representative. Tell him you want the "Call Display" feature so you can see the numbers of all incoming calls and can choose not to answer a nuisance or unknown phone number.
While in your Telus account, consider paying the £1.30 monthly fee to keep your name and number from being published in the Telus residential directory and online phone book. This might cut down on the number of nuisance callers who get your number from the Telus phone book.
Visit the National Do Not Call Registry and add your cell phone number to the list. This is a free service that bars telemarketers from calling you on your cell phone to solicit business.
