I’m getting this issue but with numbers from the UK with a 22 area code. Daily calls, no one answers no message left. Very annoying. Is there a fix for this or do the scammers give up after a while. Been happening for a couple of weeks. I block each number but it’s different every time.

Hey do you still get these calls? I am getting multiple calls almost daily, from various numbers (Canada, UK, AU), if I pick up there is just silence. I block those as spam but I suspect it's a bot, the calls keep coming from new numbers then.

It is very annoying as I use my phone for work purposes and it is likely that ligit callers from AU try to reach me.

Have not seen any solution to this, but also have not experienced this to such an extent (only after I moved to Vodafone).

I don't see a solution, do you?

If you have an iPhone then get an app called WideProtect. I dont thinks its on the Google Play store.

Its an app (one off fee of about $4.50 - I think it was) that enables blocking of numbers using a widecard entry.

I was getting lots of scam calls and brought this app and nothing since.

 

So I have entered the number 9-88 (not sure why but the area codes are single digit like 9 instead of 09)

It will now block any number that comes in using those fist few digits.

You can allow any of your contacts through as well, so those dont get blocked.

Very handy app !!
