I'm normally having a relaxing afternoon snooze when it happens. Dreaming of sun, sea and who knows what. Then I hear it. Far off in the distance at first as though it's part of my dream, then suddenly it dawns on me, it's the phone.
It's clear that nuisance calls and texts have become a daily problem for many people. They not only cause frustration, but they can even be distressing and intimidating. We've had more than 1,600 comments about nuisance calls and texts on our website and many of them had the same theme - 'why isn't something being done?' Our research also found that in the last three months, seven in 10 people received unsolicited calls and four in 10 an unwanted text.
