    ive had optus ring me twice in 2 days trying to change my mobile phone from prepaid to a plan.i was rude to the woman that rang from optus (the 1st time)but it didnt stop her ringing a second time.the second time she said she said she needs to confirm my details i told her you should know who your ringing and hung up.is there anything i can do that is legal to stop them ringing me and hassling me.also i am on medication which has side affects one of them is first thing in the morning when i take my medication i dont even know what im doing and dont want to do anything stupid like sign up for a plan.

    I adopt the passive aggressive style ("who are you"?) - that way you can't later be accused of issuing threats or abuse and I never answer a question (not even 'how are you') except with irrelevancies or counter questions.
    It often seems to be the case that people will (rightly) take exception to being importuned on the street, yet accept it over the telephone.

    easier way.. just ask then to hold.. put the phone to one side and forget about it.. after waiting a couple of hours each time they give up..
