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

Having the same problem. Numbers I've had calls from now:

0044 22 0548 3693

0044 22 0459 0147

0044 22 0080 0407 (this the only one I've had repeat calls from I think)

0044 22 0870 7648

0044 22 0048 9980

0044 22 0604 5311

0044 22 0219 2999

0044 22 0362 6839

 

I've also been getting calls on my home phone where they just hang up so am assuming is similar but can't see the number.
