    Bob called the number

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentences?

    Bob called the number, and the angry voice the other end told him he was not interested in buying anything. Before Bob managed to say he was not a telephone seller, the man hung up.

    Re: Bob called the number

    You need "at" or "on" before "other end". "Telephone seller" is not natural. I'd just use "salesman" or I'd say "... he was not selling anything, ...".

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
