Smart phone solutions

While I was on enforced rest as I recovered from a broken ankle, I noticed how many cold calls we received.

27 February 2019

Then I found an answer others may wish to use. Our phone handset can store some 20-plus numbers and a huge selection of ringtones.

Enter all the numbers of callers you wish to answer and give them a distinctive ringtone. Then select a completely different melody for all other incoming calls.

If an unknown caller rings: do not bother to answer. If they need to speak to you, they will leave a message.
