Be careful of calling 800 sex lines

This was submitted by a customer and we thought it was worth republishing although we should point out that we have dialed an awful lot of 800 numbers over the years and this certainly isn’t typical.

As you know, I am trying to get a specific vanity number. Well, when I called this number using one of the toll free prefixes, it turned out to be a sex talk line. As soon as I realized this, I hung up. Unfortunately, I had neglected to block my number from caller ID. Thus, the sex talk business now had my number. Much to my chagrin, they started texting me to try to entice me to call the sex talk number. Messages like; Hey baby, I’m hot and horney. Call me tonight.”

As if this wasn’t bad enough, salt was being rubbed in my wound because, with my phone plan, I am charged 20 cents for every incoming text message. So, in addition to being assaulted with this crap, I had to pay for it.

Even under the new “do not call registry” law, a company can continue to call you for up to 90 days from the date of the last business relationship. I knew they would maintain that my dialing their number constituted a business relationship. Plus, the only number I had to call them to attempt to complain was the sex talk number and I would be charged $1.99 a minute if I called that number.

With the number of text messages they were sending me on a daily basis, it was starting to get expensive and I was desparate to put an end to this harrassment without changing my phone number. What was I to do…?

On the 3rd day of receiving these texts, I can up with a brilliant idea. I would threaten them with the loss of what was most valuable to them; the effective loss of their vanity number.
The next time I received a text from them, I sent them a reply text which read, as follows;

“If you do not remove my number from your call list, I will set my computer to continuously dial your number and keep it jammed so you can’t receive any other calls.”

I haven’t received any more texts from them.

Thanks for yoiu help in attempting to obtain my vanity number. I’m looking foward to hearing from you.

    I just wanted to say how happy I am with Bill Quimby's service and help in first, establishing my 800 #'s and then his assistance in my rolling them over to our phones. I would recommend his business for anyone that is looking to add 800 numbers to their business. He always answered the phone and/or emailed back when I needed him. Customer Service most places in today's day and age is lacking greatly - - but not with Bill Quimby and his company.real estate sales 800 numbers

    Mr. Quimby was polite, professional and brilliant. I am very pleased to have worked with him to locate an easy to remember 800 number for my law firm. My clients are often illiterate and victims of fraud and as such typically are not able to easily contact a lawyer unless we make it easy by the proper telephone numbers to help them.

    We found it remarkable how fast they were able to satisfy our request. One phone call to the owner and all questions and concerns were answered. In addition we were supplied with several new marketing ideas we hadn’t considered, which aided in the overall selection of a 800 number.

    When I called a carrier to grab an 888 number I knew was available from the AT&T look-up tool, they told me their "national database" (they didn't know which) said it was unavailable. Assuming they were full of it, I found your website and I grabbed the EXACT number they said was unavailable in about 2 minutes. Like I always say, "Most people are wrong about most things most of the time."

    I recently started a new consulting business and needed to connect with the world through my new website. Within less than one hour, I had my 1-800 number up and running (and listed on my website). Shortly after, I had a great resource manual sent to my e-mail address with "all things 800" - everything I needed to document my ownership - plus instructions and recommendations on finding a good carrier. I needed this kind of help. It is great service and good business. There are many 800 number options out there but I chose Bill Quimby and I'm very glad I did. Thank you Bill!!

    Thanks again Bill. I will certainly recommend you.
