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 am very happy with your service and have bought 2 numbers within the last month. I was overjoyed when in response to a concern I had with my first purchase, my phone call was answered promptly by a human being. In fact, it was you, and you were extremely helpful and professional. You patiently took time with me and when I hung up- I actually understood what you had explained. This is a miracle in and of itself. I was in shock that a human being was there to help me- let alone one of the principals. Thanks a lot. I have no need to look elsewhere when it comes time to purchase my next vanity number.

    Alot better than any other service I called.Your service is very customer friendly. No one else could guarantee the number and you had to choose their long distance service before I even bought it.

    In this day and age, you hardly can praise any company. Most treat their customers as if they do not matter.

    I want ALL of your future clients to know that I really write this from the heart and with utmost honesty, when I say is an exceptional service, with truly exceptional people. I bought my first toll number from, If I'm remembering correctly in 2002.

    Back then I thought the service was great, but since then I've bought a few more numbers, and can say, with great ease that the service is exceptional.

    Keep up the great work Bill! I also don't want to forget Rita. She's very helpful. You've always provided a 5-star service.

    Super efficient! These people had the perfect number for my company Twisted Silver - 888 "I Need Twisted" and it was up and running in 4 minutes! In a world of "hurry up and wait" this was such a great surprise.
