When we were on Slingshot, I asked them to Remove us from the Telephone directory.
They removed it within a few hours I requested it.
When we signed over from Slingshot to Telecom, we specifically requested to have a unlisted number when we signed the form, otherwise we get harassed to death by cold callers. We got assured that would happen.
Well, after we signed up to Telecom, we had an increased volume of cold calls, and upon further investigation revealed that we had been relisted in the telephone directory against our wishes, I contacted Telecoms 123 helpdesk, and I spoke to somebody somewhere in Asia, and she apologized for this.
Then she asked if I would like to change to a blacklisted number, and I agreed. She said this would come into effect soon, however it still hasn't happened. We are still listed in the phone directory, and every day we get more and more calls.
I'm not happy with Telecom/Chorus, despite us clearly instructing them not to list us, they just go ahead and do the exact opposite.
Hope this gets sorted.
