April 29th, 2009 Roycew FL

I receieve 2 calls per day which I do not answer. Contacted AT&T directly AT&T Consumer Customer Service (consumer.customer.service@ase.att-mail.com) and received the following response.

Thank you for contacting AT&T regarding (954)467-8730.

I will be happy to assist you with the solicitation situation. I have
submitted an order to remove your name from our solicitation lists and
add it to our "Do Not Call" list. Please allow up to 30 days for all
of our databases to be updated. I apologize for the inconvenience the
AT&T solicitation calls have caused you.

Should you need further assistance or have other questions, please reply
back to this e-mail and I will be happy to help you.

We do appreciate your business at AT&T. It has truly been my goal to
provide you with outstanding customer service.

I hate this company. Its ATT calling to offer me more packages. I have told them time and time again that I am not interested and to remove me from the call list. no good. I am also on the Do Not Call list, but I think since I am a customer that doesn't matter. I hate ATT and I wish I could make them stop. I don't owe them any $ but they are as harrasing as a collection agency would be. I like the other users idea of an air horn... lol that is hilarious.
Best of luck to everyone else!

BellSouth trying to sell DSL services

November 15th, 2008 sgg

ATT monkeys called every day, but now call twice a day. The airhorn was an excellant investment. Great fun. Blows the headphones off their heads! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

However, when a monkey does not answer when I pick-up I file a complaint at: esupport.fcc.gov
because these "abandoned calls" are illegal. A live representative is required by law to answer withing 2 seconds of the victim answering the phone. ATT does not have enough monkeys to answer every call their computer dials so they drop the call (they hang-up) and call back later. Not legal. Check item 3 on the complaint form: "Telemarketing, Prerecorded Messages and Do-Not-Call". Then check item 4 on the next screen: "'Abandoned Calls' ('Silent Calls,' 'Dead Air Calls' from a telemarketer) and 'War Dialing' received on your residential or business telephone". The definition and 2 second requirements appear to the right.

Just noticed a change in the FCC complaint form that includes complaints about Telephone company telemarketing calls. Just finished another compaint about ATT.

Complain about EVERY ATT telemarketing call EVERY time you receive one at: esupport.fcc.gov The change to the form indicates that others are not pleased with the telemarketing calls. With enough compaints perhaps ATT will be forced to stop harassing their customers.

November 14th, 2008 victim

The AT&T idiots call everyday. My response is always the same. I say F**K YOU A**HOLE STOP CALLING ME then blast them with my airhorn. Then of course they call again the next day. Recently received a postcard from AT&T saying they will begin offering me NEW "products and services" after 33 days. More telemarketing garbage! They included a number to call to stop the new garbage calls (not the current ones), 800-377-9290. IDIOTS!

October 16th, 2008 O

When I answered that call they hung up.
Called back that number. Answers as the New AT&T Residential Sales & Service Number.

August 29th, 2008 adf

att calls several times a week. i no longer answer when this number calls. it does no good to tell them to remove me from their list and tell them not to call me. called att to complain and was told the only thing i could do to stop them is to cancel my account. very helpful!

July 30th, 2008 Jim

We called 305-347-5491 and filed a complaint. This is the person in charge of this off-site telemarketers for Bell South. She was shocked that someone had her number. I was extremely upset and told her that I expected these harassing calls to stop immediately. I then went to the AT&T website and filed a formal complaint, listing the time and date I talked to this woman. I filed the complaint through their website so there would be a paper trail. I told them it either stopped immediately or we would put ALL our service away from AT&T. Within one hour I received a call from an AT&T manager. I told her if they were going to hire people in a foreign country to do their marketing they need to pick a country where they at least speak English. I told her it was a joke--people trying to market great telephone service and they can't speak English NOR do they sound like they care. We NEVER got another call from these people. The trick is to leave a paper trail in all your complaints AND to call the number above.

July 19th, 2008 Jimmy Spags

A T & T call to update my bundle. Said my long distance plan was outdated and I could update and realize an overall savings of approx. $12/month. I agreed. Will see what happens.

July 11th, 2008 MICHAEL GA

Did not leave a message when answering machine picked up.

July 11th, 2008 tommy AL

they called to check for payment arrangment for bill that isnt due for 2 weeks??????

June 10th, 2008 DAY MS

Called number back. AT&T Residential Sales auto-answered.

May 28th, 2008 Jim NC

I must have received calls from this number at least 3 times a day. I decided to call them back. It is AT&T sales.
I don't want AT&T. When they called back, I answered and I actually talked to someone and told him that I did not want AT&T service. Hopefully, no more phone calls.

May 25th, 2008 Abbey MS

called me several times - I called back & says *this call can not be connected*

May 2nd, 2008 victim

these idiots call several times a day monday thru saturday

April 25th, 2008 John Ford KY

Calls several times each morning and afternoon. Leaves no message, hangs up.

April 21st, 2008 Stacey GA

Received calls from this number twice a day on 4/16, 4/17, 4/18 & 4/19. All were around lunch time (11:30-12 noon) and again in the evening between 6:30 and 7:45. They hang up when machine picks up the call.

April 7th, 2008 Dave GA

These buttheads are calling once or twice a day and hanging up. I've already got Bellsouth/AT&T DSL but I really wish I had another ISP option. Good thing they're not a monopoly, huh?

April 1st, 2008 M AL

Rings another number as soon as it is picked up. Will follow the advice on this site. Thanks!

March 27th, 2008 Gaby FL

Everyday!!! sometimes twice a day. Always hung up when I answer.

March 22nd, 2008 Liz FL

First off: PEOPLE PLEASE STOP POSTING YOUR PERSONAL PHONE NUMBERS BELOW!!! Bellsouth does NOT read this board!!! You're putting yourself at serious risk. Post an email addy if you need a reply. I have gotten about 92 calls in 3 months, with NO sign of them stopping. I called again today to demand that they stop, and of course, they're closed. I then called all the other departments that were open, and they all told me the same thing. They don't have the ability to call me... only the main sales dept does. What lies!!! I will be filing a complaint with every authoritative figure I can that is able to deal with this: FCC, Donotcall.gov (while Bellsouth doesn't have to abide by their rules, they do have to stop calling if you request it. They will get fined heavily if you present evidence that they're still calling after they've been told to stop. Send a registered letter. That's proof enough!). I'll also be calling the attorney general

March 22nd, 2008 ivan AL

they just dont stop the calls but never answer

March 21st, 2008 Scuba2deth

This number calls 2 - 3 times a day. Driving us nuts.

March 20th, 2008 dw

This is a SCAM artist or IDENTITY THEFT ring. They will not take you off their list if you push the corresponding number. You're simply disconnected. If you speak to someone, they will not identify themselves or the company but start demanding information about your vehicle. If you stop them and ask, they will say, "OK", and then hangup on you. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFO!

If anyone can figure out a way to block the number please respond! I get numerous calls per day.

March 20th, 2008 dw

This must be a SCAM artist or an IDENTITY THEFT ring. Its the same company that uses other phone numbers and company names in the caller ID and tries to sell you a new warranty for your car. If you push the number to be taken off their list, you are simply disconnected. If you push the number to speak to someone, they do not identify themselves or the company and immediately demand information from your vehicle. If you ask, they say, "OK", and then hangup on you.

March 18th, 2008 TN girl

sick and tired of 5-6 times a day my phone ringing. when I would answer, no one was there. Finally, had enough. Talked to them today and immediately told them to stop calling. she asked if I was happy with my service. I said I was, but I wanted her to stop calling. She said it would take 30 days to get my name out of their system. At least that is what I think she said. this southern girl was having a hard time understanding foreign English.

March 13th, 2008 Denise

Called several times per day for the last 3 days and hangs up as soon as I answer.

March 12th, 2008 dragon

you better stop right now or!!!!!

March 10th, 2008 heyfarm SC

Why is it that Bellsouth calls to get you to buy more packages and I did! To block this number and guess what it doesn't work with number nor does the Do Not Call List...this so frustrating...does any one have a way to stop it....I give up...all times of the day and night....

March 10th, 2008 Abe Lestz

I want to know what is going on with the phone service@9460 Sunrise Lakes Blvd and whEn are we going to have the phone service or do we have to get another service, Their are sick people and people that need emergency care and I want a responce

March 8th, 2008 San GA

OK these people have been calling 4 ever; the next time they call.. I'm gonna sa OK if you call again I WILL switch to COMCAST phone service. I will let you all know what they said.

March 1st, 2008 Kim

I am on the do not call list and they call me everyday more than once. It is very annoying and I wish they would stop calling me.

February 28th, 2008 Blake VA

When I speak to them they are calling for AT&T (used to be Bellsouth in my area). They try selling me packages of stuff I do not need that they say is cheaper than what I have. WRONG! They tell me I'm paying $42/month now and this package only costs $30. So I ask them are they adding insurance and other stuff I have that is not included in the package and they are not. Once they do it costs $5 MORE. They still ask me do I want to do this and save money. When I ask them how is paying $5 MORE than what I pay now for services I do not use helping me save money they ask again do I want to do this and save money. I ask them not to call me anymore but they do every month. And if I do not answer or if I tell them right away I do not want to change and hangup before they can tell me about anything they WILL keep calling. I've complained to AT&T and they told me if I ever wanted to change anything to call them direct. That this is not really AT&T but a company that sells for them. Some help in stopping the calls!

February 16th, 2008 Tina GA

I am tired of getting these calls because they are constantly hanging up when my answering machine comes on. They call all times of the day, early in the morning until late in the evening. If they wand anything, why not leave a message so that I can call them back.

February 14th, 2008 TC

It had been quite some time since I'd seen a call from this number. Then, last week, right after I ordered DSL from my current ISP, the calls come back, 3 or 4 every day. Gee, I wonder if there's a relationship there...

February 14th, 2008 Sandra

After receiving numerous calls from these ass holes I sent an email to Bellsouth/AT&T and told them in no uncertain terms that I wanted this stopped , and if they did not I would switch to Charter Communication for my phone service. I told them I had enough sense to be able to change my plan...on my own ..if I chose to do so and didnt need their outscourced telemarketeers calling my home 24-7. That they were rude, didnt like to take no for an answer, repeated hangups...etc. and this is the same as any harrasment and certainly tarnished their reputation to the customers they do have....So if they are harrassing you also...make sure to let them know !

February 13th, 2008 mmg SC

I asked them to stop calling numerous times.

I've had countless problems with Bellsouth. They sent my bill to a wrong address and didn't cancel my long distance. I thought i was paying my regular bill when i was really paying my long distance bill. The other bill was sent to some post office box.

Anyway, some Indian dude kept calling about my bill. After I finally got things straigtened out ( i think i did), i ask them to take my name off their list.

And now they're calling again.

February 7th, 2008 Jingled Grunge LA

Claimed I called them, no I did not. Sales pitch?

February 2nd, 2008 MV

I called back this number on my cell phone and it is the "New" AT&T. We don't answer the phone when we see this number.

January 22nd, 2008 Donna

This 866 819-5368 just called again left no message on my answering machine. WHY DO WE HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ALL THESE STUPID CALLS? BECAUSE THEY THINK WE ARE AS STUPID AS THEY ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FROM KNOW ON I'M GOING TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND BLOW MY WHISTLE WHEN THEY CALL! Then maybe they they will GET A CLUE

January 22nd, 2008 Jessie Davis GA

My name is Jessie Davis. I am a 76 year old who lives alone. Someone has been calling me threatening me, hanging up, transferring the call to a rated 'X' number and annoying me throughout the day for sometime. I cannot afford your caller ID plan, call trace or other plans you offer. The caller called 1/20/08 between 5:25 and 5:30 p.m. and on the same day at 5:43 p.m. They called 1/21/08 between 8:25 and 8:30 p.m. central standard times. Please either email my daughter at carattee@aol.com or call (901) 361-7300 to give me information as to who the person is. Thanking you in advance.

January 17th, 2008 Andy WA

This number continues calling 5 to 10 times daily, at all hours! I never answer when "Tollfree Number" or "Unknown Name" displays on the Answering Machine. Perhaps their machine has developed a Love Affair with my Machine during the past 6 months! ;-)

It seems that being on the National DNC List is ineffective!

January 16th, 2008 Ken AL

Called our business, not realizing they were still on the phone, a 3 -4 min voice message was recorded while they talked. Whomever it was, spoke very unprofessionally - very American and with many Americans around - What's funny is, it was hard to believe they were in a call center, seemed as though they were getting lunch. Weird.

January 11th, 2008 Jay FL

These people call me every single day, at a bare minimum of twice per day. This has been going on for longer than I can remember. You know it's bad when you've memorized the phone number of someone you've never actually talked to!

January 8th, 2008 Keith GA

Very funny conversation with an obvious east-Indian person. He said my bill was around $92 a month and that he could save me $15 a month. Sounded good, but I remembered that my bills were more like $86. I was cooking dinner at the time, but was able to find a bill. I told him that his information was wrong. He returned with another package. Unlimited Long Distance (includes Canada), 6.0 Mbps DSL etc for the savings of $87. I asked him how that was a savings since it didn't include taxes and all the 911 and supplemental fees. I basically wasted about 15 minutes of his time and then finally told him that his information about what I pay was incorrect. I'm now going to lodge a direct complaint with Bellsouth.

January 7th, 2008 Smith GA

Never leaves a message or follow thru w/the call if I answer!

January 5th, 2008 Jenni

they hung up on me

December 22nd, 2007 francis lydian KY

who have been calling the 8668195368

December 22nd, 2007 francis lydian KY

who call

December 18th, 2007 Mom TN

Leave telephone line open as caller hangs up on unanswered 4th ring. For apps. 45 seconds an unpleasant sound "screams" into my room from the telephone line. Called with sound effects 4 times on Dec. 17th and 4 times on 15th. Isn't this harassment ?

December 16th, 2007 de

This number calls at least 5 to 6 times a day looking for a person who has been dead for 7 years. The last time I answered the phone the person didn't believe me the person was dead so now when they call my answering machine gets it with a message if you are looking for such and such look in the cemetary. It seems to of done the trick because now they dont call.

November 25th, 2007 j

I answered the call. A lady asked for me by name, and then asked if my telephone was working properly. I told her that since she called me and I answered, she should be able to tell me if it was working. She hung up. Call came in at 6:17 pm CST. I promptly called the number back and got a recording that AT&T was closed and that I should call back during business hours, which ended at 6:00 pm CST. Really an absurd call. Have gotten as many as 8 calls a day from this number. Only solution I can think of is to call AT&T customer service each and every time I get one of these calls, and see what happens. Probably nothing, but it will make me feel better

November 21st, 2007 mmg NC

This number keeps calling. Is this Bellsouth or ATT?

November 20th, 2007 Renee

Finally someone came on the phone. This number has called me 25 times a day for months now.. Finally they were there when I answered and it was a company selling features for ATT customers. Could barely understand her she was in India

November 13th, 2007 Cyndi

no message, calls almost daily

November 2nd, 2007 KJ

Be careful if you answer any of these calls from this telemarketing firm calling on behalf of AT&T. A couple of months ago I answered one of these calls and couldn't understand the girl very well. She did not speak English well at all. I said I was happy with the service I already had and she said okay but something about verifying something. I didn't say anything because I didn't have a clue what she was talking about. I never gave her permission to add a service or anything but the next bill I got had a higher charge and a new type of DSL service listed on it. AT&T Customer Service promptly reversed the charge and removed the service when I called and complained and even they told me to be careful with these people that call on their behalf. Why a reputable company would use these telemarketers is just beyond me!!!!

October 30th, 2007 sandra

They called and I answered.....talking to dead air no one on the other end.....UGH they are starting again. Last time we told them because of their telemarketeers harrasment we were going to switch to Charter Communication for our phone service . Guess we need to actually do it this time.

October 29th, 2007 Robin FL

Phone called - we answered - no one spoke but I could hear people in the background.
Finally they hung up

October 28th, 2007 Marie NC

Hang up calls again. They always call at strange times.

October 27th, 2007 LB LA

Called and won't identify themselves. Then just hangs up. Gee one would think Bellsouth would offer a course on telephone etiquette to their representatives!

October 22nd, 2007 jim

does not respond when we answer the phone, just hangs up. With as much activity as is present on this blog, one would think the FCC could do something.

October 19th, 2007 Judy GA

Got two calls from this number. Called it back & it's AT&T. So the next time they called I answered. Wanted to know if we are getting the best service from them. I told them No service for internet is S.... When we call for help on service we get some guy in India that can't speak ENGLISH.
They were suppose to report our problem months ago & have gotten NO respond. She said she would report it & have a nice day. Telemarketer! !

October 19th, 2007 Gil

These idiots have been calling me, on average, about 10 or 12 times a week for years and always hang up when the answering machine catches the call. I didn't know until I looked at this site that it is probably BellSouth/AT&T.
But they apparently have a "plan B" if they can't track people down on the phone.

Last summer I was in my driveway taking some things out of my car when a guy wearing a shirt with a BellSouth logo on it and a BellSouth ID clipped to it walked up.

His pretext was that he was doing a "customer satisfaction survey." But before long he started trying to sell me additional services. I told him I wasn't interested but he wouldn't accept that and said I could save two dollars or so a month by combining my current services into a package. I finalyy did it just to get rid of him.

After doing the parerwork, he told me he didn't really work for BellSouth but for a marketing firm in Florida. Then he said he had to pee and wondered if my neighbors would mind if he went behind a bush in their yard.

These must be really classy people!

When I received my next bill, not only was it NOT two dollars or so less...but about ten dollars MORE.

I reported this to state and federal regulators and to BellSouth and told them I wanted everything back the way it was before this idiot popped up on my driveway. And that eventually happened.

October 18th, 2007 Joe

Y'all have all the horror stories. I don't get near as many calls and the only hang-ups are on the answering machine. But they did get me to make a change about a month and a half ago. I added caller ID so now I don't answer their calls anymore. Thanks Bell South/ATT

October 18th, 2007 jess SC

Has been calling all Sept and Oct and calling 3 or 4 times a day. Everytime I answer, they hang up. Have called back and spoken w/ supervisors but nothing done. Am canceling my phone and going for another service.

October 17th, 2007 Marie NC

Numerous hang up calls. My provider is Bell South. I am on the do not call list. Very annoying.

October 17th, 2007 Rich

Really annoying since it's probably a call back system that pulls up your number and will wait for a real person to answer before passing it on to a live telemarketer, similar to the call center setup which we use for consumer affairs. I guess I'm using a bundled package from Comcast, so they're probably trying to make me switch over to their service. Too bad I can't send them over to our call center in Inida! lol

October 17th, 2007 Fred

I complained to a BellSouth representative who informed me that I had three options-add my number to the do not call list, enroll in BellSouth's privacy service or simply cancel
my BellSouth service.

Order a privacy service to protect me from the company that was apparently harrassing me?

Is there a legal term for harrassing someone in order to force that person to purchase a privacy service?

October 11th, 2007 Randy GA

Hangs up when I answer.Has called 16xs in 4-days.

October 9th, 2007 Kay IN

Our ID showed 000-0000, but when she left a message she said to call 866-819-5368 and said she was Natalie. It was for someone that doesn't even live here.

October 7th, 2007 Danny

Called and did not leave a message. Saw it was from Bellsouth I did not answer.Wasn't Bellsouth and AT&T combined? Should my caller ID be saying AT&T?

September 28th, 2007 Jill NC

We get calls from this number all the time - day and night. I answer and say hello twice. Usually I do not get an immediate response so I hang up. How annoying!!

September 26th, 2007 April

Starting to get Ticked Off - calls every day around 8pm - right about the time I'm trying to get my 9 month old to bed! Give me a break people!!!!!

September 19th, 2007 Sean GA

I just called this number. It is BellSouth/AT&T Residential Sales. A real person answered and I said that if the calls don't stop, I'm pulling my business. The lady promptly said, "I will remove you from the marketing campaign immediately." I then hung up (I was very irritated). Let's see if the calls quit coming. (I am in the Atlanta Metro area if that means anything).

September 17th, 2007 Angela FL

Calls at all hours. They hang up just when it reaches my voicemail. Tried blocking the number but Bellsouth won't let the number be blocked.

September 15th, 2007 Mike FL

Called me FIVE times so far today!

didn't answer because i now know the number...............

September 15th, 2007 Lucia KY

Call multiple times a day. Hangs up the second the machine picks up. I don't answer.

Can they be stopped?

September 15th, 2007 SC

Calls from this number are getting to be annoying. In our state, it's a criminal offense to repeatedly call another and annoy them, like the owners of this number. Maybe I need to go ahead and start criminal prosecution against these idiots.

September 13th, 2007 Steve

Calls daily 3 to 4 times and hangs up. I call back and the message says it's john from elw, the rest is very garbled. no one ever answers

September 10th, 2007 dee

same thing, different number. no message, hang up when the machine starts, caller ID says toll free call. if its bellsouth its pretty annoying seeing as we just became customers, and have been such less than two weeks

September 10th, 2007 chris GA

Claimed we were going to get a check for 77 dollars for always paying out phone bill on time and that they had to come out and changed the box at our house - sounded more like a scam than a legit business. I told them to stop calling and hanging up on us.

September 5th, 2007 nancy Radford NC

i do NOT want anymore calls from this # to my home-828-251-9292.

September 4th, 2007 Frank KY

This site is loads of help. they cal several times a day but we do not answer. When our answering machine picks up they hang up.

August 31st, 2007 Mad in Alabama AL

I get so annoyed with them calling MULTIPLE times a week, for many many months.

They do not SPEAK good english ... and I dont think they UNDERSTAND english either, because I tell them I do NOT want their internet service!!!!

I told them yesterday to NOT call us back!!!

When I got home from picking up my children from school today, their number was on the caller ID AGAIN!

I looked up their web page. MAYBE if we send enough emails telling them we are FED UP they will quit calling?!?!?

Here is the web site.


August 29th, 2007 lisa KY

i am on a no call list

August 25th, 2007 NC Victim

I had previously registered for "Do Not Call." Calls from this "TOLL FREE NUMBER" began 08/07/07 and have continued nearly daily. To date, I've received 9 calls. My telephone automatically records calls, but I have been documenting them on paper to compare calling times. My calls start after 3:00 p.m. and go as late as after 8:00 p.m. I screen all calls and do not answer any I do not recognize. I allow my answering service to pick up, but "whomever" does not leave voice mail. It has been harrassing to say the least! I am phoning AT & T who bought out Bell South and reporting it and requesting it be blocked if there isn't a charge involved. With any problem we face, it's always about paying out more money anymore! Lots of "rackets" going on out there in the steel jungle and we've become innocent victims! Perhaps if AT & T and Bell South support these calls, then we all need to phone our Attorney Generals and report this.

August 24th, 2007 anoneemuss

This number just calls constanltly. When I finally decide to answer it, they hang up. They called 8/15/07 @ 3:56PM
8/16/07 @ 12:50PM
8/16/07 @ 5:18PM
8/17/07 @ 5:17PM
8/23/07 @ 12:08PM
8/24/07 @ 10:50AM

This is just the calls I have not deleted yet. I agree with David. This is harrassment.

August 24th, 2007 Julie Knott

Lady ask to speak to my father, I told her...he is on a do not call list. She said "Well thank you for your time" and hung up.

August 24th, 2007 David

Calls about everyday now. Will never leave a message. I was sleeping because I had to work night shift and ringing woke me up. I checked just to see if it was important and noticed it was this damn number again. Seems like harrassment to me.

August 22nd, 2007 Niles

Da cracker heads call and leave no message. Whatcha boar headed homeboys want?

August 22nd, 2007 HM LA

Phone rings at my job, I answer, then they hang up as soon as they are greeted. Stop pestering our business.

August 16th, 2007 elle

Bellsouth looking to rope me into more useless services.

August 15th, 2007 ncp GA

calls and when I answer hang up. Blocking them

August 12th, 2007 Zelda FL

This number belongs to AT@T. They hang up on humans and when they hang up on the answering machine, it can leave a horrible disconnected audible sound that can last forever if I am not at home. I have told these people not to call me. I have written them and I have reported them to the do not call list. Nothing stops them. I will no longer answer calls from "unknowns", but I will find out who they are and report them.

How funny! Bell South called as I was reading these posts! They are trying to sell bundled products, the operator wasn't rude, but I told them no, and I wonder if they will still call.

August 9th, 2007 Mel TN

Calls multi times a week. usually they hang up before I can get hello out. Once they said they were looking for someone but after I told them she did not work at the number they called they still call and will not stop until I can give them a account number or something crazy.

August 9th, 2007 david

I got a call from this also after 8:00 - No answer

July 31st, 2007 Traci TN

When you call the number back it states it's AT&T Sales & Support Center.

July 31st, 2007 Allison

in the last 2 days i have recieved 19+ calls from the number... 866-819-5368.. they always hang up. the calls started at 6 am and went on till 9 pm.. i called them, talked to a representative, told them if it doesn't stop, i will report them to the FCC and will pull my service from them.. hopefully it stops now..

July 30th, 2007 herb TN

calls several times a day

July 28th, 2007 Paul

We have Bellsouth phone/TV/
and internet. They do not leave us alone. I am in the process of finding different providers for these services

July 27th, 2007 Phil TN

They were calling me several times every day. Same thing - the caller would hage up when I answered or never leave a message. The number is a toll free number - turn around and call it 1-866-819-5368. It is Bell South - now AT&T tell them you have had it and to quit calling or you will file a complaint. Worked for me.

July 26th, 2007 Lynn

If enough Bellsouth customers let them know they won't do business with them anymore if they continue these calls (and aren't obligated to follow Do Not Call rules because they're your phone company) then maybe they'll cut it out.

July 25th, 2007 Neil FL

some dumb guy from india called just now... -_- wth man...

July 25th, 2007 Cynthia

I have been receiving two calls a day from this number ever since I totally stripped my phone service to the bare minimum. This is AT&T residential sales and service.

July 25th, 2007 Neil FL

some dumb little telemarketer girl from india called.
Notice on the map how all the calls are to Bellsouth's service area. they're centered in Atlanta. ;p

July 21st, 2007 Jim FL

They claim they are American Express & need to be contacted. It claims not to be a sales call. I don't have an Amex card. Don't believe in the concept, so they are wasting their time.

July 20th, 2007 Cyndi

Used to get a daily call until I moved. Nope,3-5 times a day for the past month I've had this new number. I thought changing my number when I moved would help. Now I see it's Bellsouth so they'd know it changed.

July 20th, 2007 Denny

3-4 calls aday. God what a bunch money hungry jerks.

July 14th, 2007 Alfonso

Did not leave a message when it went into the answering machine.

July 14th, 2007 Melissa

Calls several times a day from 8 or 9 am until as late as 8:58 PM one night! It is Bellsouth, which was our phone company (AT&T just bought them out). My husband accidentally answered the other day and told the salesperson we were not interested in upgrading our highspeed internet and they still keep calling. They really need to close the loophole in the DNC list to keep companies you do business with from being able to call incessantly to bother you to spend even more. You can't even block this number with Bellsouth's call block service. What a bunch of a-holes!

July 12th, 2007 tash

They called and I picked up and there was no answer

July 12th, 2007 Will

BellSouth wanted to bundle my dsl, local, and caller id together. But the dumbasses should know...IT ALREADY IS!!

But, they still call 3-4 times a day through the week and at least 1 time on Saturdays.

Sometimes it shows up as 'Unavailable' with no number and other times it has the number.

July 10th, 2007 Joyce

calls all the time.The phone rings and they hang up right after the out going message.

July 10th, 2007 Beverly WA

Same as everyone else. Never leaves Message and calls all the time, 7 days a week. Talked to some one a few weeks ago and was told that DSL was coming to my area but if these calls are coming from Bellsouth they can keep there DSL and we will cancel are phone service with them and use our cell phones. Fed up with the calls!

July 7th, 2007 John

Unbelievable. I'm sure glad I signed up for the DNC list. I guess instead of 5 times a day they might be calling 25 times a day.

July 6th, 2007 RICHIE

BEEN calling for about 50 times a month for a year.found this page thursday.called them said they would stop. called 1 time this morning.said changed they service, woke me up. CALL THEM BACK THEY SAID GIVE US ONE MORE SHOOT. CALLED BACK AT 3 PM.NEVER TALK WHEN THEY DO OR LEAVE MESSAGE. I HAVE BELLSOUTH.

July 3rd, 2007 Trisha

Called this afternoon and wouldn't answer, then hung up after a minute on the line.

July 1st, 2007 Amy

They called yesterday and before they had a chance to say anything i told them to take me off their mailing list...we'll see if it works. so far, no more calls

June 29th, 2007 Karen KY

Bellsouth...Several times a day, early morning late night & weekend calls. Always someone w/ very little english. I have told them several times that I already pay too much for their phone services $50 for reg phone service & caller ID nothing else, I had no intentions in adding or changing anything else to stop calling me. They called the next day & asked for my husband who told her the same thing, & yet they still call.

June 27th, 2007 Marilynn TN

Calls and hangs up before I can get to the phone. I keep small kids and it often iterrupts their nap. This si so irritating.

June 15th, 2007 Paul TN

I called them back and told them to put me on the DO NOT CALL list. They called me 2 days later to let me know that the work order was processed and they would stop calling. Now, a few weeks later, they are calling again. I report each phone call to www.donotcall.gov and they should be getting fined $11,000/incident.

June 8th, 2007 Molly FL

OK!!! It keeps cutting off the last part of the link...... after telemarketing its _calls.html OR just go to the darn website. LOL I was just trying to help you guys out. :)

June 8th, 2007 Molly FL

SORRY, the first link was wrong. here it is again;


June 8th, 2007 Molly FL

Go to the bellsouth website under contact us. It will say annoyance calls. This is what it says on their website:

"If you are receiving silent or hang up calls between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m., it is possible these calls are from telemarketers. Many of these calls will display on Caller ID as "UNKNOWN" or "OUT OF AREA". These calls may be annoying but they are legal and legitimate attempts for companies to sell their products or services to prospective customers.

It is possible for you to receive numerous calls from many different telemarketing sources. For the calls that display on Caller ID as "UNKNOWN" or "OUT OF AREA", AT&T now offers Privacy Director® which will assist you with these calls. For availability and information contact the AT&T Service Center listed in your directory.

To reduce the number of telemarketing calls you receive from national companies call 1-888-382-1222 to have your name added to the National Do Not Call Registry, or, you can add your name to the registry via the Internet at www.ftc.gov."

I sent the customer service an email and told them to quit calling us. I havent heard from them since.

June 8th, 2007 Molly FL

Oh and here's the link:

June 8th, 2007 Lisa GA

Called and hung uo when I answered.

June 6th, 2007 Kraig

Same as everyone else, non-stop calls trying to sell me a bundle of services I don't want... I too will cancel all Bellsouth/ATT services should it continue

June 2nd, 2007 Minka

Keeps calling and hangs up when I answer. I called the number back its an ATT sales center.

May 30th, 2007 at

spoke with bellsouth & was told it was a telemarketing srv. but they could not give me a name or adddress and could not do anything about it...thats WACK

May 23rd, 2007 Elisha NC

Calls and asks us to switch to the NEW AT&T.

May 20th, 2007 Gina GA

Calls are coming from Technion Marketing in Florida. Won't take NO for an answer. They are Rude, argumentative and refuse to stop calling. Report them to Bellsouth locally at .

May 16th, 2007 Jerry

OMG this number calls my home maybe up to 10 times a day! Without any consideration they start calling around 7am and dont stop until 9pm at night. It is so aggrevating. I have picked up many times and all they do is hangup on me. Ive onyl had bellsouth for a coupl eof weeks now and I am fedup with the service. If this doesnt stop i will be switching to comcast!!!!!

May 15th, 2007 Deanna NC

They have called me a few times a day. I finally called the number and told them to put me on their do not call list.

May 14th, 2007 Heather NC

Cingular & BellSouth are merging with AT&T, and this number is from their marketing dept. However, if you call it back, you will get the BellSouth call center dept (after a welcome message from AT&T). Since I do not have BellSouth phone service, the sweet lady in the call center could not put me on their internal do not call list (that's only for customers). She recommended that I answer the next time they call and request that my number be removed from their list. We shall see. I have already attempted to remove my number by using the privacy features on the BellSouth website. I'm not holding my breath!

May 13th, 2007 Joe FL

I have been receiving 2 to 3 calls a day from this number for the last 2 weeks but have not answered. I finally answered and got someone with a heavy accent trying to get me to go back to DSL. I told them no, I was happy with comcast and told them not to call again and hung up. Let's see if they call again.

May 12th, 2007 WENDY FL


May 12th, 2007 Paul TN

I got the hangup as well, but I called the number back and told them to put me on the Do Not Call List for AT&T/BellSouth. They agreed to do so.

May 12th, 2007 Nik

This is BellSouth trying to sell more services. Now that I know who it is I just won't answer the phone. The lady I talked to was very nice but she sounded Indian. I told her to put me in as a refusal so no one else would call.

May 11th, 2007 LD

Same here...
Calls are ALL DAY everyDAY
anywhere from 8 am to 9pm at night.

May 9th, 2007 L.H. AL

Just left a "polite" note through the annoyance email at bellsouth.......we'll see.

May 5th, 2007 Oviedo_FL_Dude

I have received close to ten calls from this number recently. When I pick up the phone, there doesn't seem to be anyone at the other end. Very annoying. There was one time recently when I answered a call and talked to Bellsouth about DSL service (not interested) but I'm not sure it was from that same number. The girl at the other end was VERY pushy and did not seem to understand these simple words : "I'm not interested." If this keeps up, I'm knocking my phone service back down to "basic" land line with no frills.

May 3rd, 2007 Glenn IN

Called but left no message. I'm reluctant to pick up when the caller ID says 800 service, so I have no idea who it is.

May 2nd, 2007 skeeter LA

i called them back and it was at&t. i waited for a real person to answer and then i hung up on them for a change. every time they call i will do this.

May 2nd, 2007 TML

Called around 11:00am CST

May 1st, 2007 Allen Screws AL


April 25th, 2007 rooster GA

In case you didn't know, Bellsouth won't allow you to block this number via the call block *60 feature. How's that for customer service!

April 25th, 2007 Roooster GA

All of our phone numbers are listed on the National "DO NOT CALL" Registry however, this number continues to call multiple times everyday, does not leave a message and does not say anything when someone answers. I have just filed a complait with the National "DO NOT CALL" Registry and hope this provides some relief. I am darn tired of this type of privacy invasion!!!

April 24th, 2007 jill FL

Very annoying....Must call at least 2 or three times a week....

April 23rd, 2007 Luna FL

Deb in Florida

I find this interesting that this is Bellsouth telemarketing. I was getting calls from Nach.TX from a Bellsouth telemarketer. I told them not to call again, but of course they did. I entered a complaint on the do not call list site. Now I am getting calls from 866-819-5368, Toll Free Number.
(end quote)

This is the same thing that happened to me. Natchitoches, TX, right? It had been for Cingular the first time that they contacted me under a number from TX. Now it's BellSouth?

(I'll be glad to move out of Florida. LOL)

April 21st, 2007 Rogers GA

Just like what Amy said. They hang up as soon as you answer the phone.

April 20th, 2007 dvlpr GA

Call all the time and like other posts, they seem to call between 7:30 and 8:30 pm nightly.

April 17th, 2007 Ken

I didn't answer but hit *69 and called the number back. It answered AT&T customer sales. Don't call me, if I need you, I will call you.

April 17th, 2007 Pete TN

Hangs up when I answer. Irritating!

April 13th, 2007 Frank LA

They call every day, and will not speak. Whether I pick up or leave the message center on. I called them back and received the AT & T Service. I spoke to a male who was very polite. He stated he will forward my request to a manager, and have them stop calling. The location I reached was in Kentucky. I told them about this website for information. I also stated that I will start tape recording them, and then follow up with making it public. Overall the way I see it they are looking for some free publicity / advertising, and their getting it. Hell, this may even be their web page. If it is, I would like to first say hello, and then stop calling my dam office. And if you don't I'll fart in a bag and mail it to you. Scratch that, I'll just keep playng the game. What the hell, at this rate I think someone owes me some money for my time. Anybody out there want to sue? Any lawyers? Hmmmm, mental something or another.... Sh.. I'm tired now, I'll be sure to write back should there be a need...
Holy crap... as I'm sitting here typing they called back again.... Sh.. Oh well what the hell, I just yanked the telephone out of the wall. Dam, I need telephone cord. Hey AT & T if your out there will you plesae call back, my telephone is temporarily out of order. If you send me a new cord I'll swith to your service. Okay you winn, switch me over... Your the best. Ah... forget about it. Your Fired....
Is this gorilla warfare? Hmmmmmmmmm

April 13th, 2007 grampz FL

call 2 or 3 times every day....ignorant bastards! We never answer 800 calls.

April 12th, 2007 Judy

Bellsouth, they are calling
every day and at night too.
We are very up set.

April 11th, 2007 Neil FL

dead air. what an awful system they must have.

April 11th, 2007 Terry

Called at almost 9pm last night, and then today at 11:30am. Bellsouth, that's it; I'm done with you.

April 11th, 2007 Mike FL

tollfree number

April 7th, 2007 TOLBERT

Hav been receiving calls fm this number for 3 days. When answering they never say a word and receiving 3 to 5 or more o0f these a day is annoying. Please help and inform what goes.

April 7th, 2007 B

daily calls - we don't answer toll free numbers when they show up on caller ID - never leaves a message...

April 7th, 2007 doug TN

5 times on a saturday was too much. i answered finally which gave me the chance to hang up on them.

April 6th, 2007 L

Bellsouth? Why??

April 5th, 2007 Annette

Calls Daily. I do not answer "tollfree numbers"

March 26th, 2007 Tommy MO

I asked who it was and the guy said he was calling on behalf of the phone company. I told him to put me on their DO NOT CALL LIST.

March 26th, 2007 Tommy MO

I asked him who he was, and he said he was calling "on behalf of your phone service". I told him to put me on their DO NOT CALL LIST.

March 26th, 2007 Kim TN

Calls at least once or twice a day but hangs up when we answer the phone and hangs up without leaving a message.

March 23rd, 2007 Jim

I have an old Microsoft Phone setup that allows me to put numbers on a "Do Not Accept Calls". When it rings the computer hangs up on them Ha Ha Ha

March 23rd, 2007 John MS

They call nearly everyday,

Freaking driving me crazy!

March 23rd, 2007 bz

it is the new att.
I didn't answer either

March 21st, 2007 Mrs G

This was annoying--no message when answering machine comes on!

March 20th, 2007 artie FL

call four to six times a day. hang up when ans. machine goes on.

March 9th, 2007 JC TN

This is a sales call. They say this is an automated call back number. I have called them and have asked that they not call my number again with any sales calls. If you call them, they will look up your account. If you want off their solicitation list, tell them and they will take you off.

March 9th, 2007 Didi

called several times during the day and did not leave message

March 7th, 2007 Salty NC

The phone rings on the answering machine and does not stop. After 20+ rings, I unplugged the cord.

March 4th, 2007 Ed

They still call trying to sell me Bell South DSL. After I have told them, I already have Bell South DSL!!!!
I think I need to look for another internet provider.

March 3rd, 2007 V FL

Has anyone tried to contact a local or national news source about this? Might not hurt, as bad publicity is the last thing a company wants, especially when going through a merger. I've had the same problem since signing up with Bell South several months ago. I get calls 2-3 times per day from this same number.

February 26th, 2007 Bruce

Never leave a message on the answer machine. When I pick up no one was on the other line. It has been calling me everyday. I'm getting ready to cancel my phone service.

February 26th, 2007 Brian TN

Called and hung up immediately when I answered. I am so sick of these idiots calling ALL THE TIME.

February 21st, 2007 Larry

I receive a call from this number more than once a day. I answered it a few times and it's always trying to sell DSL even though I've told them over and over that I don't want it. I now let it go to answering machine and it hangs up.

February 14th, 2007 Celeste Ford MS

Calling Daily. When Called Back you get a recording that says "Welcome to the New AT&T"

February 12th, 2007 Jordan KY

This number has called me 15 times in two weeks, never leaving a message.

Last year I got at least 60 hang-up calls from the same number, eventually setting my Asterisk box to filter it out (instead of ringing the phones, it picks up immediately and plays loud monkey noises into the line. Even this failed to stop them, but at least it doesn't wake me up any more).

Calls since Feb 1st 2007:

01022007-16:06:07 8668195368 TOLLFREE NUMBER

February 11th, 2007 Donna

I've had this problem since November and finally paid $9 a month to get caller ID. Both Bell South and Bank of America are calling me. Armed with thi information, in my next call I said I'm on the National Do Not Call Registry, but as a customer I know you do not have to abide by the rules. However, as a customer, I have the right to be put on YOUR do not call list. Got good cooperation. The have a do not call list for all affiliates of these companies. Get your name added. Do not be afraid to answer your phone!

February 7th, 2007 Mike

The e-mail to annoyance@bellsouth.com worked. Have had no calls in over a week. Threatening to cancel all service and use a cell phone and different internet service, it works.

February 5th, 2007 Houston in SC SC

I called back this morning. They are taking me off the call list. I am an existing customer. No problems with them except calling at weird times and no message. We will see if it stops. If not. I will drop there service.

February 3rd, 2007 na TN


February 3rd, 2007 M.L.

Multiple calls come at random days & random hours. Seriously considering going with Cable for broadband and voice over ip phone service.

February 2nd, 2007 Bill

Get the calls constantly 3 times a day. Is there any way possible to stop the madness. They call so much I just can't handle it. I'm gonna commit suicide (Just kidding) But it's driving me insane any suggestions. I already have caller ID and hang up on them. No one on the other end.

February 2nd, 2007 Silent One KY

These idiots call about 10
times each day. Try ordering
the chicken curry if you answer.

Cheers !

February 1st, 2007 Shannon

I've been getting calls from these folks FOREVER, many times in a day. After being home sick from work for two days and being constantly woken by these annoying calls, I finally requested to be taken off their list, only to be told it would take 30-60 days (I e-mailed BellSouth customer service...the address that Dave provided back on 10/11/06). I'm optimistic that Dave's lack of comments since that time indicates that he was successfully removed from the list. I agree with Fishman...they seem to put annoying people above anything else. Even if it cost ten times as much, I'd still get cable service over BellSouth DSL because I'm so ticked off over this incredible behavior on their part.

February 1st, 2007 Fishman

It is obvious to me that this company's #1 purpose is really to annoy people, and whatever they are trying to sell/push on you is secondary. The question is why would a company waste money with business practices like this, as no one in their right mind would buy their product after having been pestered to death like this. I am looking into one of the programs that, while routing your phone calls through your pc, it will allow you to block these offenders numbers - a program that should become standard fair, such as spyware programs have become.

January 31st, 2007 Phantazmagoriia

Federal Trade Commission.

$11,000 fine per incident reported, if you tell the telemarketer not to call back again.

This DOES include telemarketing harassment from your phone service provider using/abusing the "National Do Not Call" loop-hole.

January 27th, 2007 Sherry Lacroix

11 calls - that is eleven! - with no messages in less than a week!!! and I have BellSouth DSL!

January 25th, 2007 Anonymous

Called and hung up when I answered.

January 22nd, 2007 Mike

Just sent an e-mail to that annoyance address, we'll see what happens. I work midnight shift and it's insane that I have to shut my phones off to get any sleep. Wish I had Hachmed's or Ishtar's or what ever the hell his or her name is home phone number so I could call him from nine at night until seven in the morning, and when he/she answers not say anything and hang up and then call back again, again, and again.

January 19th, 2007 Joni

I just emailed these harassers at annoyed@bellsouth.com and demanded they stop no later than 19FEB07. Told them I would report them to the Attorney General of Florida.
Thanks everyone for your posts and the information I garnered here.

January 18th, 2007 sue

at least daily calls with no message left. Also will call and hang up after only 1 or 2 rings.

January 17th, 2007 Sara

Phone rings. I answer. No one says anything.

January 13th, 2007 Janet

They keep calling and no one is there.
