    Just breathe very very heavily through the receiver. They will never bother you again.

    They very "Fan" one la. I work shift, need to slp during afternoon. If forget to put phone in silent, sure tio auto alarm from them. Furthermore, my spare line, I NEVER give out, still got unknown call from them. I now have the habit of not answering unknown call but also quite bad cause those who knows me, call from another number, also kenna rejected. What if they really need my help? That's why I say if I can beat them up, because they making my life miserable. Got once, I actually walking near the MRT track, got a call. Then he heard MRT sound, he thought I inside the train and stop the conversation. I know they want to earn a living but what are their chance of success for finding a customer? I think they should be ban, as they are consider hidden "ah long"!

    I will simply reject all unknown numbers, if someone I know was rejected, he/she will definately call back or sms me to identify themself.
    Private numbers all rejected without 2nd thought, if you are so secretive about your identity, than why should I entertain you!

    yeah, if you ask them "can i have your number? i am busy right now and will call you back". they will either hang up or reluctant to give you his/her number.

    Pick up the phone, cover the mouthpiece and whisper in a hurried tone: I'm in a meeting now-can you call back later? Then hang up.

    Do you want salesperson to constantly harass you in your home, on the phone, or on your way to work?

    Seriously speaking though, how difficult can it be to just press one button?

    The teleco should offers such service. When u give numbers out, group them with codes. Example your numbers + 1234 for family n friends. 5678 for office n bussiness. 0000 or other combo for those lucky draw. So, you can trace back who gives your number out and maybe can sue them.
