2 things to note, @Shar93 - "unknown calls" often come from numbers where the owner has asked for privacy, such as hospitals and health practices or clinics - such calls can often be genuine (and yes, they *could* make the call appear as if it was coming from a main number, but...!), and secondly, your phone needs to know the number for the block feature to work. A bit of a dilemma, wouldn't you say?

Scam callers almost always present a (often fictitious or random) number on your phone, and change that number frequently; Spam like double glazing or big call centres often mask their number so you cannot call them back. Catch-22! What can you do? Very little, alas.

@Shar93 

You can block unknown or withheld numbers in your phone app settings.

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.
