1 December 2021

Sick of scam calls? Unwanted phone calls can be unpleasant and even dangerous for vulnerable or elderly people, especially those with dementia. The superb trueCall range combats scammers, mis-sellers and other nuisance callers to protect your loved ones, as well providing ways to organise and professionalise your phone system. This handy guide will help first-time users understand How To Use trueCall Call Blockers. We'll be covering all things trueCall, focusing on the following products:

How To Set Up Your Call Blocker

This range is super easy to set up, and can operate from any phone socket in your house. To find out how to set up your trueCall unit, take a look at the simple instructions below.

  1. Unplug your telephone lead from the wall socket.
  2. Replace with the trueCall lead.
  3. Plug the telephone lead and mains adaptor into the device.
  4. When the device says 'Ready', you're good to go!

Connecting the trueCall Unit

You can manage all your devices via your Internet Control Panel, where you'll be able to review details, change configuration settings and edit caller lists. All you need is a caller-ID service from your network provider (this is usually free) and a landline!

Why Choose trueCall?

If you're not convinced, here are just a couple more reasons why we love trueCall. There's no denying that unwanted calls are a nuisance. The only problem is that call blockers can seem a little impractical or confusing, even for more tech-savvy users. That's why trueCall Call Blockers are:

  • Compatible with all phone lines: trueCall products work with all phone lines for your convenience. They also work with the majority of landline phones, including cordless DECT, cordless analogue and text message phones.

  • Energy efficient: The trueCall products are Energy Star Certified, using less than 1% of the power of a standard light bulb. Additionally, trueCall's data is kept safely if it loses power, so you can continue making and receiving calls even if there is a power cut.

  • Supplied with a voicemail system: Each device includes Message Manager, its own powerful voicemail system. If you have a separate answering machine, simply unplug it or switch off any answering facilities provided by your telephone.

  • Easy to use: There are no special codes on any of the units, making them incredibly easy to use. The products have very few buttons and coloured lights to show whether the phone is on call, busy, or ready for use. See below for visuals.
