I have had 13 calls in the last few days from 020 3986 followed by various numbers. Apart from physically blocking the number each time they call is there a way I can stop all 020 3986 numbers?

@Jimbob1 You can't block numbers from a specific prefix. You just have to block them manually, unfortunately.

Block the number and report it free to 7726.
Don’t open any links or enter any information.

Hi Bambino,

many thanks for your help. I have done what you suggested & reported it. I guess I'll just keep blocking them!

Hi 🙃 Worth noting as alot of phones allow you to block even partial numbers, like mine so would block what you want 👍 HTH.
