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 wanted to thank you for the outstanding service and results. As you probably know the mortgage market has changed significantly. Over 50% of our business is now FHA loans. 888-FHA-OPTION will be a great tool to help grow our FHA business.

    Thanks again,

    Not only is this the best site on the web for choosing toll-free numbers, the only one that allows you to pick words (instead of numbers,) and have multiple choices emailed to you, but they provide instant personalized service! I was skeptical that there was a real person on the other end of the email, but in the course of selecting my number, Rita corresponded with me ten times from 6/1 through 6/8! Even on the weekend! Then when I activated my number, I called and it rang instantly! I am amazed. Your service is superb! Moreover, I can't believe I got this number!

Your website and support made getting our toll-free number easy but the greatest surprise was that our number was active in just minutes, really just a few seconds. Great Service. Great Website. Great Job!

    Tollfreenumbers.com was by far the easiest site to research available numbers, and the suggestions for differnt names/numbers really helped me think when my first choice wasn't available. the 30day 100 mins free really gave me time to find the best longterm carrier and this service is extreamly fast I would recomend this site to anyone and will use it again Great Site

    After looking around for a while on different 800 number sites I finally
    stumbled upon yours. In minutes I had hundreds of possible 800 numbers and
    most didn't even show up on other web sites. Instead of just getting 1
    number, it was so easy we got 3. One was even back ordered and it was ours in less than a week. We are now set to launch our new product nation wide and just in time for the commercial to air. 1-800 STICKY NUMBERS

    Thanks for making it so easy!
