looking for help - I have a Telecom VDSL service, very happy with it, and a POTs line with call waiting etc.
But on that POTs line getting lots of spam calls up to midnight and getting heartly sick of it. Because they are 'odd numbers' and offshore not much that Telecom can do about it, can not unplug the phone as have older relatives and need to be available for them if they call.
So have obtained a second faxability line (unlisted), and are looking at options to silence the main line at night but leave faxability line active.
Three options seem viable - the first is a "distinctive ring router" - available on Amazon for around US$115.00- but not sure if US and NZ ring cadences for fax are the same.
The second is to port the faxability number to 2Talk and use an IP phone - but need to be sure this will not stuff up the main POTs line and VDSL
The third is to get call minder on the main line and set it to immediately answer any calls at night.
Can anyone advise -CoffeeBaron ?- on the best solution.
Thanks and Regards
