We all are irritated by the constant bombardment of ppi, injury and other spam calls and text messages this guide points out the way to report them.
If it is spam text messages forward them to o2 spam line 7726 and also report them to the ico using there online reporting form (survey) linked in this page https://ico.org.uk/concerns/marketing/spam-texts/
For calls registering with the Telephone preference service should stop the legitimate cold callers http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/index.html but will not stop the list building spammers again report the numbers to the ico on the form linked on this page https://ico.org.uk/concerns/marketing/telesales-calls/
For business numbers use the corporate tps here http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/ctps/what/
The Ico has a lot of useful info here
And if you still have one faxes https://ico.org.uk/concerns/marketing/faxes/
The ico has already handed out big fines for this and by reporting it will help them prosecute more and deter this type of activity.
If you are receiving premium rate spam from shortcodes then head over to the regulators site and lodge a complaint there, we have on these forums seen people get their money back from these scammers http://www.phonepayplus.org.uk/for-consumers/unexpected-phone-charge
If you're receiving missed calls from unusual numbers do not call them back. These numbers will charge you a premium rate and they rely on you calling them back to work. Instead block them using your handset.
Hope this helps it will not stop them but may cut down the frequency they happen.
P.s. You also have to option to set your marketing preferences to manage contacts by O2's trusted partners.
