      I would play them along, and act stupid.

      I did it for 48mins when someone rang me up trying to sell me broadband, and I kept asking how I could connect my calculator to the interweb thingy etc

      As long as you have reported it, there is not a lot else you can do short of blocking their number on the phone if capable.

      Seriously, my dad has done the 'string them along' thing more than once & it worked for him.

      Regarding TPS, i'm signed up too but it's not 100%.

      There was a BBC documentary a few months ago that tackled TPS & the general tele-sales problem as a whole.
      Turns out that if you divulged your number on a website or anywhere else & DIDN'T tick the box that asks about not receiving further correspondence, TPS can legally be bypassed.
      The so & so's also get around the laws in other ways, but apparently the government is working on this... Yeah right.

      Just ignore them. it's like SPAM email, the more your respond to , the more you will get.

      Sky do offer the Anonymous caller reject service (which blocks all withheld numbers) but it costs 4 extra a month
