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.

You can get Call Blocker apps from either iTuns store or the Google App store.
TrueCaller seems to be popular BUT you might need a subscription to use its full features.
Not sure what it offers in "free" mode.
Still ...No harm trying.
See this article for more.
It would be nice if phone manufactures allowed for wildcard expressions when blocking numbers.
For example: 0044* would block all calls starting/coming from suffix 0044
To much to ask ??

Thanks, Yeah, I did the same research yesterday. Options for Windows PHones are more limited than other O.S.. And TrueCaller requires internet connection, which I don't have. But hopefully something will come out that suits my needs in the near future. Just got a marketing call from the States, too, this problem is rapidly getting out of hand.

I know there is a way you can block the individual numbers on any phone but they (scammers) change numbers so regualy that it seems pointless.
Can you amend in the Call Blocking list a number and add a wildcard expression behind it??
For example I have an iPhone 7 and i've added in under call Blocking the number 004422*
Not sure if it will work or not but worth a try.

You might want to block 00 44 20 as well. I started getting them from 00 44 22 numbers but in last few days it switched to 00 44 20 numbers :-( Very frustrating!

I am having this problem too!
It is driving me crazy!
Please can Vodafone do somthing to help its customers!
I keep getting calls from the UK and they never use the same number twice;
00 44 22 0756 2772
00 44 22 0102 7732
00 44 22 0227 7460
00 44 22 0633 5959
00 44 22 0145 8085
00 44 22 0459 6915
00 44 22 3623 4948
I am also starting to get calls from Toronto Canada;
00 16 47 295 1939
00 16 47 398 6927
Please can we have a way to block calls from countries/regions?

Not sure on what phones people have but I have found another iPhone app called "Block Spam Calls SMS MMS" by Valerii Andrusyk
Its only $2.99 and its only a one off payment.
The nice thing is that it seems to be able to offer wildcars expressions:
This from the iTunes Store Discription
Allows you to block spammers using phone number prefixes. Forget about unwanted calls, SMS and MMS, and spammers spoofing tricks.
No subscriptions, no in-app purchases, pay once and use for any ranges you need!
Now the app supports blocking up to 20,000,000 phone numbers!
There seems to be a number of Apps avaivalbe on either store (Apple/Andriod) but seems some require a fulll time internet connection to check numbers against databases.
Not sure if this is on the Andriod Store and doesnt help Windows Phone users either...sorry

I've had the UK numbers, then it switched to Canada and in a new development this morning I got Iran. As per the other people affected, the calls just hang up.
I do get some legit international calls. Given the technology available surely there must be a way that Vodafone can offer users a approved and unapproved feature (on email I think its called a black and whitelists).
