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.

    Great web site! One of the best small business sites I've see, and I'm a web developer who's been using the web daily since the 90s...

    I wanted to say how easy to use the tollfreenumbers web site was. I looked at many others but they were the best. I called and spoke to a customer service person and they were helpful and did not rush me at all. I got the perfect phone number for my books business 1-888-4SavonBooks. I would have never created this without tollfreenumbers.

    This is our second transaction and we are extremely happy. They respond promptly through email and phone. I would recommend this company to anyone requiring this service. This type of great customer service is not common today in any business.

    Thanks for all your help Bill, you are the only site/source that we have used to get our 800#'s. And that's probably also part of the reason we were able to sell our business recently to AT&T!

    All the best,

    Thank you so much for helping me with my problem with AT&T today. You really helped me out of a bind! My entire business was paralyzed because of those guys. If it wasn’t for you I’d probably be down for days more!

    All the best and happy holidays. If you’re ever in Florida and get a speeding ticket, look me up. Cheers!

    This was the first time I had ever needed to locate a 1(800) telephone number for my company. After researching five companies on the Internet I selected your company based upon your past testimonials from real people seeking a real solution. So, here I am today writing a testimonial of my own for you and your company.

    As a recent customer of, I could not be more pleased with this company. Locating a Vanity 1(800) can be difficult but not with this company. The setup was in place within no time and the support was an added bonus. The total cost was nominal and I will look to Bill and in the future. Great people offering a wonderful solution.

    Thank you,

    Thank you very much for your services. Your webpage is very informative and cuts through all the fluff the others have out there.
    After reading your pdf about 800 numbers that make money I decided to go with a "real" 800 number for our business. After only 24hrs I had a great number that instantly activated.

    Your website has been very helpful. I spent days upon days reading it. Our catering truck is dubbed the "Slab Wagon", so we decided to use that as our phone number since it is easily associated with our service. The process has been seamless. Thanks!!

    Faced with the daunting task of setting up a toll free line for my fledgling new business, I was a babe in the woods. But after finding and reading through Bill Quimby's site, I was an expert! Bill's site not only helped me find the perfect toll free number, but also told me what to do once I had it.

    Many thanks!
