Can I block a country from calling my mobile?

Hi,

 

I'm being pestered by frequent empty calls from UK numbers (calls that hang up as soon as I hang up). Even though I stopped answering them, they keep coming.

 

Can I block all incoming calls from the UK (I don't know anybody there anyway)? If not, is there a spot where I can report these numbers (it should be illegal in the UK to make calls like this).

 

Thanks!

@Justus65

Sorry for the hassle but there is no means to block. If you would like to capture and send me the number I'll pass on the details.

Thanks for replying,  Mike.


The problem is that they keep using different numbers:

 

26 Jan 16:36 00442209319707
2 Feb 16:16 00442202291009
6 Feb 12:31 00442202211002
8 Feb 12:01 00442207734838
10 Feb 12:33 00442200827107

 

so blocking one number is not much good. They would need to actively pursue what organisation is behind this......

 

How about blocking all numbers starting with  ..... ( in this case 0044220)?

Neither do I, but that is not really a satisfactory solution.....

would like to do the same here;

2018-02-08, 00442205171788

2018-02-09, accidently deleted from history and in trying to block all numbers lost them from block list

2018-02-10, accidently deleted from history and in trying to block all numbers lost them from block list

2018-02-11, accidently deleted from history and in trying to block all numbers lost them from block list

2018-02-15, 00442208780248

2018-02-16, 00442208845537

 

this is very annoying, we need a way to block these entire number ranges

Thanks for the details, I have raised this internally. Pretty sure we can't block the number but I will wait to hear from my colleagues.

Cheers

Hi Mike,

 

This is obviously a bigger problem that just me, and a problem that won't go away. "we can't do anything about it" is not really going to get anybody anywhere. Can I please ask Vodafone to look into it at a higher level and come up with suggestions. Personally, blocking a whole country (or all numbers starting with so and so) would work, though it's not very elegant.

 

Thanks!

@Justus65

I'll raise it up another level though based on the conversation I had with the networks team it doesn't look like blocking is feasible.

Thanks, but if block-blocking is not an option, can you please think about other solutions? Maybe an app that does it for us?
