@Leah21 You have the ability to block the number within your phone's settings, or if you aren't sure how to do that, there are apps on both Android and iPhones to help you.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

Edit to add some new information. smiling

 

0330 303 5303 is a legitimate O2 number however if you don't want to be contacted you can opt out by updating your marketing preferences.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

I believe the first part of the Question was "Is this affiliated to O2" which hasn't been answered.  I too am getting dischuffed to the knickers with this number calling me...So Is It or Isn't it a O2 number?

They are usually what o2 refer to as “trusted partners” so no, not o2 directly.

Rarely are these partners to be 'trusted' either. Never take out a contract from a cold call, no matter who they purport to be ...

Do not answer this number! They rang me pretending to be 02, very convincing. They nearly emptied my account. Wanted my card details to change my contract. It was only then I realised something wasn’t right. I hung up and rang 02 and asked them if they knew of the number and they said this number has been scamming other people! Warn others of this number. Never give card/account details over phone.

Claim to be O2 but are a so called Trusted partner. We advice never to take out a contract from a cold caller

Some stupid out of no where calls me saying he is from O2. I explained him I am at work and call me in evening. Instead of apologising to disturb a customer you didnt give any consent to call anytime during the day - saying to me - well it will take few minutes

 

To hell with you and your 2 minutes. you have to respect the customers when they are at work
