Annoying Calls / Texts

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I'm getting some calls / texts from someone I used to be good friends with and its getting to the point now where its 3 or 4 messages an hour and several calls a day - quite annoying but I'm beginning to go a bit crazy now.

 

I've heard O2 will change your number, once, for free if this is happening but how do I go about doing it - do I need to go into a store or ring customer services? Can the online chat people you speak to do it too?

 

Yes, I have thought about going to the police but they are not nasty calls, just nuisance I guess you would class them as.

 

Thanks.

Re: Annoying Calls / Texts

If you have an android phone, and, they are using their mobile to call/text you, then you don't need to change your number.

Just add their number to the block-list within the phone app, and register their number as a SPAM number within the messaging app, and they will be filtered out without you seeing them.

I'm unfamiliar if there is an iPhone equivalent method.

Sometimes it pays to be cruel to be kind !

 

Tell this individual that you no longer want contact.

 

I assume you share friends so changing your number via Customer Services may be a waste of time as your new number may be mistakenly passed to this person again.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the replies, I would not be sharing the number with anyone else other than family going forwards.

 

It's an iPhone though thanks for the Android suggestion too!

If your jail-broken their are tweaks that may help.

 

If not then its the Customer Service route. {Not Live Chat}

 

Hope all ends well,
