July 15th, 2009 CST hand TX

I mean Communication Solutions

July 14th, 2009 CST hand TX

Oh and I did not mention that I do not work for cablevision. I work for Consumer Solutions. If you want to handle CV service problems don't call us. We don't give a crap.

July 14th, 2009 CST hand TX

Yeah its me calling you. I sit at a computer for eight to ten hours a day monday thru saturday while it dials your number. I work for CST in Joplin, MO. I make a very good living duping you people into trying out cablevision's crappy phone service. But I don't really feel bad because I go by the book and read all of the fine print for you so you know exactly what you are getting into.

Let me tell you what I know about you when you pick up the phone. I know that at some point in the last six months you were a cable customer. Or maybe not. I have called people that have been dead for years. But I don't know what services you have with CV. You could already have the triple play for all I know. I don't care. I just want the sale.

just keep in mind everytime you don't answer the phone, CST computers put your name back in the hat to be dialed again and again and again and again. I do place you on the do not call list when you ask and read to you a very dull script apologizing. What happens to your number after that I don't know, but I do know that CST computers will no longer let me dial you, even manually, if you are placed on the DNC list.

So now you know who is calling you. If you would like to call and bug us the telephone number is 417-624-7702. Dave is the director. Matt Russell is the assistant dir, I think is his title. They're good people so don't yell at them too much.

June 10th, 2009 sue NJ

I don't know why keep on calling during 8:00pm to 9:00pm

May 19th, 2009 anonymous NY

register your phone number on the national do not call registry (https://www.donotcall.gov/) If they still call after your number has been registered on the database for 31 days then you can file a complaint with the government. This is the reason the telemarketers say it takes "30 days" to remove your number, they are abusing the 31 day national do not call registry rule, it has nothing to do with their internal "procedures."

May 8th, 2009 R- Hicksville OR

I'm getting calls every day too and I SPECIFICALLY asked the sales rep on the last call to remove me from the list. If you call the number back there is an option to be removed from the list....they say it may take up to 30 days to go in effect. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

March 17th, 2009 anonymous TX

CVC Melville...never leaves a message, has called several times!!

I am so sick of them .... first Cablevision kept calling me, now these people. I've told Cablevision until Jim Dolan sells the company, he's not getting any more of my money! AND THEY STILL CALL ME!

September 30th, 2008 drew CA

I get a call about 4 times a day from these assholes. No message.

September 13th, 2008 cc

This is extremely annoying. I get approximately 12 calls a day from these people. I never answer, but still annying.

August 29th, 2008 NCY NY

It is cablevision and if you call the number back you can add your number to the "don not call list".

August 28th, 2008 name NY

they just keep calling

July 19th, 2008 tmg NY

Cablevision - call the number back & hit option 2. You can be placed on their DO NOT CALL LIST

July 16th, 2008 danielle

It's CableVisions telemarketing number. If you call the number back they give you promts to get on the Do Not Call List. It says at the end it can take up to 30 days.

July 9th, 2008 Mike

This is CableVision, trying to sell you Cable TV/Internet/Phone service. The scumbags disguise their calls as CVC Melville CL. The best defense is to never answer their calls. This will make them waste dozens of calls & then they'll simply go away.

June 26th, 2008 AB

never leaves a message; I never pick up this call either...let it ring;very annoying

June 25th, 2008 P

they never leave a message

June 17th, 2008 vj NY

these people are from cablevision wanting phone service on they're cable service.You tell them you don't want it, and they try to give you free movie tickets. when will they get it no means no

June 1st, 2008 Alex NJ

These people have called me many times. The caller ID always reads "CVC Melville". Yesterday (5/31 @ 11:26 a.m.) when I finally answered,a guy identified himself from Cablevision, told me I was eligible to save money on my cable bill and then proceeded to ask me which service I had. I basically told him, "if you're really from Cablevision and if you think I'm eligible to save money, shouldn't you know what I have?" I semi-politely asked him not to call back. We'll see what happens.

516-393-0168 is cable vision tele marketing call. They call every hour of the day! Don't answer, but call the number back (516-393-0168) *it's automated* Press 2, then they'll ask for your telephone number-enter your 10 digit to get taken off the DO NOT CALL LIST.

March 28th, 2008 JimmyTime NJ

Cablevision. I called back, chose option #2 to be put on the do-not-call list, had to press 1 to proceed in English, then enter my 10-digit and I was done.

March 26th, 2008 Lil NY

lame, leave us alone please.

March 19th, 2008 stixx NY

Call the number back and choose option # 2 to be put on their no call list. LISTEN TO THE RECORDING..

March 17th, 2008 jane NY

They call and hang up. very annoying.

January 30th, 2008 Don Politi NY

Calls every day. I have filed complaints on the Do Not Call list and have insisted these people stop calling me. Never ending calls. No idea how to stop this.

November 27th, 2007 KB NY

I have received MANY phone calls from this number! Other google links say that this number is associated with Cablevision - something I find to be annoying considering I am already a customer! This number calls during business hours while I am at work AND it calls me at night! Leave me alone!

November 8th, 2007 Cindy NJ

Cablevision! If you call it back there is an option to remove you from the telemarketing list.

October 31st, 2007 Jay NY

I am on the National Do Not Call registry and I have also told Cablevision specifically that I want to be put on their internal do not call list. The law states that even though you may be on the national do not call list, if you do business with a company (if you have tv, internet, phone service from cablevision) you are implying that you agree to receive calls from such businesses. You need to do both. I have done both, because I use Cablevision as a service provider, and they still continue to call about triple play. I have told them numerous times that I want to be put on their do not call list and that I have told them this before. Each time I tell them, they give some excuse like, "the person you spoke to last time was probably new and didnt know how to do it." Here is the link for the national do not call list. This site also provides a link to file a complaint. I file a complaint every time they call. Everyone should do this. Maybe it will do some good?

October 16th, 2007 brian NJ

Its cablevision trying to sell my the "triple play" plan, even though i've told them numerous times I don't want it and stop calling me. I HAD the triple play and canceled the phone part, and they just don't get it.

September 27th, 2007 TornadoAli NY

Call from Cablevision trying to upsell me to their Triple Play package. Comment from Robert H. Goretsky of Hoboken, NJ

August 11th, 2007 Larry B NJ

Phone rang, I picked up and listened (in case it was a solicitor) but there was no one there. *69 said it was 516-393-0168, but I'm glad I checked the Internet and found this site before I called the number. My wife says we've gotten calls from this number before. This is very wrong. I'll see if I can report this number to Verizon, or call Cablevision's customer service (joke?!) to cease and desist.

July 24th, 2007 BM NY

Getting repeated calls. When I pick up they either hang up or I get a recording saying "this is cablevision telmarketing, you can reach us by calling ....". Naturally, I have no wish to call them!

July 19th, 2007 Brittany NY

Their messaging system would not allow me to get on the "do not call" list and then the sales rep who finally picked up the phone could not hear me for some reason so she hung up on me.

July 13th, 2007 DG

I used to get this phone calls on my cell phone. I text them a very, very nasty message like "stop calling me you mother******* or I will cut your service" I don't know if they even receive text messages, but the phone calls did stop. Try it, what is the worst that can happen?

July 13th, 2007 Me NY

Dolans, die already! CableVision Sucks so does the Knicks and Rangers Same A hole owner.

July 13th, 2007 SK NY

They call me about 4 times a week. VERY ANNOYING! I never answer...I was going to call them but thought I would look up the number first...found this website instead. I thought they were just calling me. I cannot believe there's a website about this annoying number..lol..that's how annoying they are!

July 12th, 2007 Kat PA

Used to get about 3 calls a day from this number, one day it stopped and now I get about 3 calls a day from 647-288-7825. Research online says they are different companies but they have the same calling pattern.

May 11th, 2007 rw NJ

May 1st, 2007 Dwalt CA

They've been calling me 3 times a day for a week. I won't answer and they don't leave a message. Has anyone answered? If we do and hangup will that stop the calls?

April 25th, 2007 Danny NY

THey have called me for the past 2 months. Sometimes twice a day, usually once a day, every day. Sometimes as early as 9 am, sometimes as late as 10 pm. It makes me want to cancel my cable service.

April 8th, 2007 SMA NY

this is the THIRD time that cablevision has called me repeatedly, but every time they do it, it's from a different city/area code. this one is florida, last time it was chicago or something. they know we hate it so they keep changing numbers!!

April 2nd, 2007 Jay NY

These freakin people. I have told them to put me on the do not call list about 4 times. Each time I say. "I have asked to be put on the list before." Every time its the same answer. They say, "oh, wow. I don't know what happened. Maybwe it was a new person that day and they screwed it up." They are blatently lying. If every caller is saying the same thing, they are being told to say this by their supervisor so asking to speak to a manager/supervisor will do nothing as well. F this company. I'm getting Verizon.

March 29th, 2007 anon MO

have received 4 calls in the span of 15 hours. I will not answer and the caller does not leave a voicemail (a sure sign of a telemarketer)

March 27th, 2007 Lori

I just got 3 calls from this number on my cell. They DO NOT want me to pick up, I'll tell you that!

March 26th, 2007 att NY

They do not leave messages.

March 22nd, 2007 SC

Once again - despite crappy service, AND me asking to be taken off their call list - they are still pushing their crappy crappy phone service.

March 21st, 2007 ger NJ

I just called the number back 516-393-0168 and i told them to put me on the do not call list. they told me it would take 30 days, but that i would be on their list. hope this helps!

March 16th, 2007 Stop calling it NY

If this think this is how they are going to get my busniness they are WRONG

March 15th, 2007 sdef NJ

I receive calls from this # everyday. They do not leave messages. I am so f****in tired of whoever it is calling. Leave a message if it's that important.

February 13th, 2007 Mike

Those annoying losers call me in spurts. 1-4 times a day for up to a week. This has happened 5 times over the past year plus. I emailed them to take me off their call list and it worked for a couple months. Now they’re calling again. Cablevision (Optimum) and/or certain individuals in their marketing department are either stupid, malicious, or both!

February 9th, 2007 Dan NY

Its cablevision sales. Call the number back and place your number on the do not call list.

February 7th, 2007 Jim CT

I've been getting tons of hang ups so I finally *69 just to see who it was. This number came up. I've never picked up fast enough to hear the recorded message, but all these hang ups are really annoying!

February 7th, 2007 whinnie TX

August 24th, 2006 Name NJ

Call rec'd 10:59am


How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
