Canberra - An Australian phone company is offering customers the chance to blacklist numbers before heading out for a night on the town so they can reduce the risk of making any embarrassing, incoherent late-night calls. A survey of 409 people by Virgin Mobile, a joint venture of The Virgin Group and Optus, found 95 of people percent made drunk calls. Of those calls, 30 percent were to ex-partners, 19 percent to current partners, and 36 percent to other people, including their bosses. The company also found that 55 percent of those polled would grab for their phone first the next morning to check who they had drunkenly dialed, compared with just eight percent who went for the headache pills first.

Similar to the method I use, store as many names as possible in your phone including the ones you do not want to talk to, keep it saved as:

Name - DNA (DO NOT ANSWER)

My own version of a blacklist - The DNA group

I drunkenly called myself one night and left a message telling myself how much I loved me. :blink:

It was so embarrasing - I had to apologise to myself the next morning.....by buying myself a case of beer! :lol:

This may also apply to posting on a brewing web site after a session at the pub or after the mates have left and you decide to try and focus enough to read the current threads and posts.
Sometimes it is just not worth it. :D :ph34r:

Virgin Mobile have released this service.

Wonder how long before other telcos follow suit.
