Why waste time trying to get off the phone with a pesky telemarketer? Here’s an easier way: Use the Easy Hang Up device from Phonex Corp. (800) 437-0101; www.phonex.com).

Please regard this message as your notification to remove this number from your list. Thank you.” Note: The device only works with one-line phones. Cost: $14.95.
