It's Talk Talk.

I also put my number into TalkTalk's availibility checker a few days ago and have had three marketing calls form them since then, including the one today from 01656672900. I'm registered with the Telephone Preference Service so I shouldn't receieve any unsolicited calls. I've made a complaint to the TPS but really, TalkTalk have sunk to a real low if they are abusing their availibility checker in this way.
Much of the advice on residential telephony I have given over the past 9 years or so is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.
I will continue to help with Orchid programming whenever possible.

Looks like TalkTalk.

You either need to ask them to unsubscribe you (but this often isn't very effective with callers like these), or ask your telephone provider for 'Choose to Refuse' service, which will allow you to block any incoming calls from up to ten numbers. There is sometimes a charge for this service though.

Hope this helps.

No, you misundertsand. It's Talk Talk. They don't stop calling just because you want them to. Who do you think you are?

Heinz,

So you are saying that no one has had success in asking TalkTalk to stop phoning them then?

Did the OP put there phone number in to the Talk Talk Broadband checker?

If yes, it states in small print just under the box;

Please be aware that if you use the speed checker, TalkTalk will call you to discuss your broadband requirements.

I've emailed TalkTalk this afternoon and asked for them to remove me from their marketing list, they have said that they are looking into it and will get back to me shortly.
