These calls are made from a telemarketer service that sells newspapers througout the u.s.a. Their system calls u and if their system doen't put the call fast enough to their sales reps, you get no one on the line when you pick it up. Keep calling them and ask them to put your number in their DNC list... They will do it, they are very nice people.

What surprised me is they simultaneously rang my landline and mobile numbers at the same time. I did not answer the call.

I called 800-950-8475 to get metro news service and asked to be put on their do not call list. They were very nice. We'll see if it works.

I just unsubscribed to the NYTimes & The Week Magazine. So I'm wondering if this Metro News Service is making a sales call under the pretense that I'm doing business with them.

They have already called me at least twice as unknown name on 11/19/09 & 11/20/09 around noon and do not say or leave a message. I do not pick up the call for I work night shift and generally sleeping. Checked out their website but I don't have Outlook setup so I can't even email them to tell them to quit calling. The only option since FDC will not do anything is to go directly to their office and tell them in person if the business even has a local business. hum, maybe time to report to the phone company directly.

They call my wifes cell almost every night and its only some recording. I looked them up online and found this http://metronewsservice.com/emailcontacts.asp I emailed from my junk box and called the 800 # and got the VP of marketing's line and even his cell #214-695-8322. Now don't all of you start calling and harassing him now ;7)

This number called me today for the first time. They identified themselves as a representative from my local sun paper. They went on about my subscription running out soon and wanted a credit card number or checking account number to make an immediate payment of the phone. This seemed very suspect to me and thought it was a scam. So, I told them that I will pay in my usual manner with a money order. I am glad to find out that at least it is not some lady, on a computer and phone scamming for credit card information. But still, that was highly suspect. If they call again, asking for that type of information, I might have them investigated for credit card fraud. Hopefully I won't have the same troubles that is being described here.

They call our house at all hours of the day. When you pick up and answer the phone they NEVER say anything, they sit there with open air and then hang up on you. Caller ID shows "San Antonio, TX" and a # of 210-587-2222. I got fed up of them calling all the time and answered and told them to remove me from their lists and never call again. Still has not stopped the calls from coming. I really got fed up then and called them back to find out it's Metro News Service and apparently they don't care about a little thing called a 'NO CALL LIST' becuase they repeatedly call. I hate, hate, hate this company and how often they call in a day. They call late into the night, early in the morning and even on weekends. I will definitely be reporting them.

I started getting calls from this number after I cancelled subscription to my local newspaper for lousy service. For the heck of it, I called the 1-800 number at this website (http://www.metro-news.com/emailcontacts.asp) and told the secretary I wanted my number removed from their list.

It's the San Antonio express-news.
They still call even after you tell them to put you on their "do not call" list.

These people call constantly. Called number back; it's the Metro News. Put these employees out of the misery of going to their mindless jobs by putting this company out of business! They're annoying!

210-587-2222: called: dead air. for some reason, telemarketing companies are flooding my phone with calls...i logged on to "national donot call registry" and registered my phone # for 5 years. after 31 days, if telemarketers ignore the restriction, i will sue them. and it is so easy and inexpensive to take their asses to court for monetary compensation. i cant wait!! i welcome 'their' harrassment; i need some money anyway!!!!!!!

They are newspaper solicitors and would not stop talking - I had to hang up on them. They were still talking when I was hanging up the phone.

This is the 3rd time they have called.
On my phone message, I plainly state "if your name, or number is blocked on my caller ID. We will not pick up, nor call back."
It has really helped cut back on these numbers. I'm sure once they hear that a few times more. They will stop.
I'm from Las Vegas, why would they call me? Idiots

I get the same calls constantly. I suggest one of 2 things or both. Call your local Newspaper and let them know you would subscribe to them, but because of the service they use you will never subscribe to their paper. My favorite is to keep a whistle by the phone and call when they call blow the whistle loudly in their ear.

This number sure gets around. Is there a phone that lets you program the numbers NOT to ring?? Sometimes these calls come in the middle of the night.

I've been harassed by these punks too. EVERYONE should simply file a complaint to donotcall.gov. Maybe if they get enough complaints they'll take care of these idiots. I already filed my complaint.

I'm sick of these people constantly calling. I've reported the number once to the "do not call" list, but obviously these people don't quit. They started calling me again last week at least twice a day. They even have called on Sundays.

Yep, Ol' Horace, Eric,& Chris,whom everyone was sure would never get anywhere,( after being un-schooled, locked away in the basement, and later in institutes where their gross deformities could be studied),have actualy shocked the scientific community by actualy starting a business. Meaningless as a job like this would be to a normal person, stills shows the determination of these ill-fated deformed conjoined triplets !!!

When I answered, they tried to sell me a subscription to my local newspaper. I finally had to hang up on him, because he was putting the hard sell on me and wouldn't take NO as an answer.

I've reported them to FTC via the DONOTCALL.GOV link. Next time they call, I will return the call and talk with or leave a message for Horace Southward - President. This will be fun! :)

This place calls all day long and never leaves a message. It's always the same automated message saying who they are and where they can be reached at. They called tonight at 8:01pm - I tried calling back and the office was closed. Try this URL: http://www.metro-news.com/emailcontacts.asp
