Customer Reviews

If you can find one buy it.
Jeff E. Bigler
It also has a setting that will let the caller ID through, no matter who calls, but still block the calls; I've never heard the phone ring unless someone dials 1.
Jay Citizen
I receive many, many calls claiming to be from my "credit card company," or political spiels.

As has been noted - this gadget will prevent your phone(s) from ringing until a real live caller pushes "1".

Slight problem though: When the caller pushes that big "1", the only telephone in the house that rings is the one directly connected to the Telebouncer. This might be fine if you live in an apartment with only one phone. BUT, I live in a modest size house with four telephones so if the "Bouncer" is connected to a downstairs phone, I can't hear that phone ringing upstairs and vice-a-versa.

The problem, in a nutshell, is that the Bouncer inhibits all phones from ringing, but only enables one phone (with the press of "1") to ring. The hype on the box implies otherwise, but it ain't so. Why this wasn't noted in eight reviews (to date) is beyond me.

Footnote: In the caller ID mode, all telephones in the house do ring once. The single ring is to let your caller ID device id the incoming call.

It couldn't have been said any better.
This product will eliminate recorded Telemarketing calls, completely.
Recorded calls absolutely do not ring through.
The reason why is very simple: to get through to your answering machine,
a real person has to press 1. So you can basically turn off the ringer, and know what when you do receive a
message, it's probably someone you know.
There's a stern warning message that comes on ahead of your personal answering message
that sounds like it's being delivered by an older guy in overalls and a white T-shirt,
standing at the edge of his property, with a shotgun leaning against a tree, as you approach.
I love it.
Since times are hard right now, these companies can't afford to hire as many live callers, so it would appear
they've turned to a recorded model. This device is the first and last weapon you'll need, to protect your privacy against them.

Over time, as telemarketers, political organizations, educational institutions, and charitable organizations have decided that it is their right to call and annoy me at their convenience, I have grown more and more weary of this nuisance in my life. Sure, I can look at the caller ID and see if it is a call that I want to ignore, but that still forces me to stop what I am doing and go look at the caller ID display.

I had stayed up very late one Friday evening (or more correctly, Saturday morning) a couple of weeks back, and wouldn't you know it, promptly at 9 AM Saturday morning the phone starts ringing with a call from a credit card company with which I am a member, undoubtedly to try to hawk some kind of additional services. Since I had no interest in "discovering" what they wanted (get it???), I promptly ignored it, but it definitely got my morning off to a cranky start. After having (*barely*) tolerated these calls for years, that was the last straw.

I had looked at the available products out there on the 'net, and there weren't many available. The others all seemed to use caller ID information in conjunction with a whitelist and/or blacklist concept, where you had to identify the numbers that you want to ring through and/or the numbers that you do NOT want to ring through. A whitelist is going to potentially block wanted callers, and a blacklist is going to let calls from new nuisance numbers through the first time, until they are added to the blacklist. One of the units purportedly provides blocking by area code, so you could block all 800 and 877 numbers and you would probably stop almost all of the nuisance calls. However, I chose this since it does not rely on having to keep lists of numbers up to date...

I have been using the unit for 2 weeks in a Telemarketing mode, and it's been serving me quite well. I used to receive over a dozen of calls a day in average from the telemarketers of various nature. For the past New Year holiday long weekend and the following 2 business days I left the device in a Standby mode... I have not received a single call from a telemarketer during this time! Yes, the device's features are not as sophisticated as I'd like them to be, and I've noticed some inconsistent glitches when it comes to triggering the answering machine on my Panasonic multiple set phone system's main unit, but overall, the device works just fine. To summarize, all the pros for me significantly outweigh the cons, especially for the money I paid. Finally! It is nice to work from home again...

The Telebouncer TB1000 by DASYm (now defunct) does not have the downsides of these competitors:
1) Telezapper; a) battery required b) must open unit to set switch c) annoying beep each time receiver is lifted.
2) Zep 100; a) you hear every call and must pick up to determine if you want the call, then press a button to send a stop call msg.
3) Call Block Computer (JFTD); a) must program all desired and undesired ph #'s b) caller ID only shows up on the device and not on your phones c) user guide has poor rating.
The Telebouncer TB1000 has 4 settings; 1) STANDBY - your phone disregards this machine. 2) TELEMARKETING - your phone does not ring. Sends your recorded msg to dial 1, 2, up to 3 with distinctive ring tones for desired person/fax. 3) DO NOT DISTURB - only pressing the # key will make your phone ring as your msg tells callers. 4) CALLER ID - just like telemarketing BUT your phone will ring once. Caller ID will appear on all phones. Caller will hear the options you recorded under telemarketing mode. Telemarketing calls will display "unknown" "out of area" etc. Recorded calls cannot get through.
Best machine I found. No downside. Works as advertised. Ops manual is thorough and installation and operation is so easy "a cave man could do it". If you can find one buy it.
