No Caller ID

I am getting constantly called from a No Caller ID number. How do I block them from calling me?

Re: No Caller ID

Unfortunately it's not possible to block individual no caller ID calls but you can block all via a setting on your phone or through an app. However, this may prevent you from getting calls from people you don't want to block, so consider it carefully.

Re: No Caller ID

@Victoria Many hospitals, doctor's surgeries and individual doctors block their numbers for obvious reasons, so blocking all unknown numbers is a risk. It's just something that we all have to put up with if we don't want to miss a potentially important call.

Re: No Caller ID

Hi @Victoria

I had to consider that very same thing,

"private" calls came through to me recently many community members helped me through this!

 ~ I have only decided to press "ignore" to stop the phone ringing. 

I do not answer "private" or no ID  or withheld numbers.

I have put as many known numbers into my phone as

I possibly can.  Businesses too that do not have switch boards.

I am hoping the no response will work for any evil doers.

I believe that if you want to talk to me then you should show who you are.

Now there is a point that Switchboards of hospitals etc., do have that withheld number

so you have to consider that ~ I have ~ no answer.

DRs. Dentists etc., using Text now for appointment reminders etc. so this is good.

Good luck and stay cool ~ because it is difficult I know!smiley
