Like many I am not a huge fan of telemarketing. I know there exist applications that automatically reject call from telemarketers based on some blacklists. This is quite convenient but it doesn't go far enough for my taste.
I am looking for Android and iPhone applications to make them waste as much time as possible. The application would - instead of simply rejecting the telemarketer's call - pick up the phone and imitate a human voice, with the goal of confusing or making the telemarketer wait.
For example, the application could:
- say "Please hold the line, I'll be right back / in two minutes"
- repeat "Sorry I cannot hear you" with some long pauses between.
Anything creative to make the telemarketer stay longer on the line is good.
Free is better, but I am willing to pay for it. It's ok if the phone needs to be rooted/jailbroken.
