When you answer the phone and find out that the other person is trying to sell another company's service to you, insist you don't have a phone. Whenever they try to correct you on this, tell them the "customer is always right" and that you really don't have a phone. When they ask you "then, what are you talking on?" tell them a tin can connected with string. Then thank them for talking to you, bark (like a dog) and mumble something about having to take your meds. Do not hang up the phone, set it down with a loud "bang" and leave it off-the-hook for about 10 minutes.
~~Advice by my Nana. She did this and no phone company has called her since.~~
