urgh i detest cold callers, i get alot of them and my number is ex directory (not in phone book etc)
when the hanging up bit didnt work on them i started trying various things
for example i reply with the sentance,
"madams house of pain how may i help you?" that usually gets them to hang up haha
or i say somthing like
"you have reached the phone number of scotland yard noone can take your call at the moment so please leave a message after the beep"
works for me

Males' I just usually ask them for their home phone # so I can call them back later.
They just hate it when you don't follow the script. Just have a little fun and remember they are just trying to make a living the best they can and would probably rather be doing anything other than calling you.
