When they ask for me, I just ask, "Who is this? Where are you calling from?"
If it's a sales call, I just say, "o he's not here, can I take a message?"
And there gone, at least for a while!

hahah, you are correct.
Actually, you don't really need caller id, you answer, and if you hear
that delay, you know the one where you hear silence then you can just
hit the star key.  That would be funny  to see how many friends you have
left.
I bought one a few years ago and my dad called, and i did it to him,
when he heard it, he bought one.
I think it was inexpensive too, i don't remember how much, but it was
about $30 if i remember right.

Hmmm! It's too bad it doesn't say something like "We have recorded your
number and will be sending it to the attorney general.  It's also too
bad that you have to have caller ID in order to really make this work.
Of course, you could randomly press star each time the phone rang and
see how many friends you had left after a month or so.

Hi, check out this web sight. it's a little device that connects to your phone and when your phone rings and you find out it's a telemarketer you just hit the star button and hang up. the phone butler tells them to kindly not call you again. http://www.privacycorps.com/pages/phone-butler-review.htm
