    Hi All,

    I keep getting calls nearly every day which either do not say anything and hang up or play some music. I cannot seem to find out who it belongs to and googling did not help much - the number is 002230833100. Has anyone else received calls from this number or know who/what it is from and what they want? I would rather them just not call me as it is becoming a PITA so would welcome any suggestions!


    Suave!

    Country code 22 is India...that's as much use as I can be though.

    Is this on a mobile or landline? Either way you should be able to get that number blocked?

    Hi,

    It is on my mobile - how can I get this number blocked? I am not too clued up on these things!

    Hi!

    Mali? I'll have to see where on the map that place is! I sure as heck do not know anyone from there! Can you shed any more light please?

    That might be the one where they are trying to let you know you have won £1m, but you hang up before they can get through to you (UK is a long way from Mali).

    Hi All,

    Well Orange were no help whatsoever and could do nothing and my all singing, all dancing phone which has a million features (that I have never used) has call barring but barrs all calls and does not allow one to select individual numbers! I have a Nokia E61 if anyone can help me find a way to stop these asses calling me!

    It will probably be a sales call trying to sell you broadband. I keep getting them and on one day the same person phoned me 3 times and when I told him he'd already phoned me he got very snotty and told me I was wrong!
    I could tell he was the same person from the voice and from the fact that he kept calling me by my Surname.
