Strange Number Calling Me...

Hi,

 

Last night around 11:30 pm and today at 10:48 am I got a call from a number (011 678 510 0227), they ring once and hang up.

 

Google provides me with this when I search the number: https://www.listdd.com/678-510-0204

 

How do I block calls with PM?

Have you tried blocking them locally on your device?

 

On the recents/history, you should have an option to block the caller/report as SPAM.

 

It may be in an extras menu, click the 3 dots type of thing...

 

Good luck

@Barryere  Go into your call history and mark it as spam + block it.

The number will be different tomorrow (these display number continually changes), so it isn't worth the hassle of trying to block.

 

I get a number of these calls informing me that I've been selected to "Win" "Win" "Win"!

 

Sometimes, I get that I'm required to call this number back or I will go to "Jail"!

 

I just ignore them, as I've not signed up for "Phone Monopoly".

I blocked it, although it'd be nice for a way to block numbers directly through the carrier so that if a person switches phones...

@Barryere  That would be a big ask for a provider to maintain that list. I use a Pixel and Google thankfully provides that service for me. Smiley Happy

Re: Strange Number Calling Me...

Another work around... it's not actually blocking, and depending on the size of the of "welcome callers" you have a lot of work, and it also means that you have to insert doctor's office etc numbers into your phone book, but:

 

depending on your phone you could add the people who you are willing to talk to to your "favorite list", then set your phone to "do not disturb" with the "favorites only" setting enabled. Calls from a number on the favorite list will go through normally. The others will show up on your caller list but won't ring.

 

Obviously doesn't work if this is a work or business phone where you have new customers etc phoning you on a regular basis. (One of the reasons for not choosing Public Mobile for a business phone...)

How hard would it be to implement a feature where users can go to a "blocked caller list" on their account and add a number they don't personally want calling OR texting them?

Judging by the speed of implementation of anything around here...

 

I use a contact to block numbers. Call comes in. I think who are you? Answer it. It's a junk call. Hang up. Add number to the contact. The contact is set up to not ring. It still sorta does in the background and I get the missed call notice and they could leave a voicemail but I'm not actually being bothered with it at the moment they call.

Do you sync your numbers so you don’t have to send out that stupid message I am changing my phone, need your number again!

 

sync to you google or iCloud (Android or iOS default) accounts.  Block the contact in your phone.

 

this should be remembered for every new phone you get.

 

Make it only one contact for all the numbers, and then block that one, if it doesn’t carry over to the new phone, it’s only one contact to block. Edit @z10user4 thanks for this idea!
