I use a popular unit called "TeleZapper" to deter computer-dialed marketing calls. It's a small plug-in unit, available from a variety of sources like Radio Shack and office supply stores, that plays a short tone when the line is picked up by either a person or the answer machine. This tone mimics the tone that tells the calling computer the phone number is not a working number and the autodialers hang up; eventually your number is removed from many of the autodialing lists. It has been dramatically effective, reducing the unsolicited sales calls from several dozen per evening to one every few days.

Just curious, will your automated phone verification system recognize such a protected phone number as valid?
