    I raised the question of privacy issues - trueCall say the information is pooled from zap lists uploaded to the ICP by weblink, and the community block list compiled from zaps from more than a few users. As such, the information supplied is anonymous, but they say they are working on an opt-out in case anyone doesn't want to contribute in this way.

    Of course, whether you use the community block list or not is entirely under your control.

    Anything that causes grief to these telepests and peace to the trueCall user can only be a bonus.

    Just had a look and can't see anything in the custom settings to see how to do this.

    I do not currently run a Blocker, so won't be able to use this facility - but that doesn't matter because I basically treat all non-star callers as zaps. As such, I don't maintain a zap list (except for nuisance callers that fall inside my wild card stars), but it seems to me that I should now go through my call logs and zap persistent incoming numbers - so that they contribute to the community block list.

    Well after a short wait its here with us trueCall Community block list.. I have to say this will make some of our trueCall Zap list a little smaller due to the fact that the NEW Community block list will take some of the strain.. I have set mine up so all they get is the unobtainable tone

    How will you setup yours ?

    According to your profile you have a trueCall Call Blocker!?

    It depends how long you have had it. Prior to about a year ago it would have been what we call the Classic.

    But there is an upgrade offer from trueCall.:cheers:
    Blocker available for Classic +Extra users @£89.99 this is 15% cheaper plus you get the years free access to the Control Panel.

    Even better you get to keep your existing unit for family or friend or even to sell. Cannot be bad. :supercool:

    I've just bought a trueCall Care device for my parents. Is Community Blocking not available with the Care?

    Thanks

    I don't know - have you checked the ICP?
