@Jem_ Apart from blocking the number on your phone you can also report it here: https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

There are tens of thousands of these calls made every day. The golden rule is never respond to, or give information to a cold caller.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

I have the same number on my blocked list too.

They called me to try and upgrade my phone, to which I declined wink

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.

Maybe a trusted partner but I urge anyone not to take out any deal from a cold call. I too would block the number.

Manchester area code and always claiming to be O2. Definitely a scam....Google throws up these sort of responses. https://who-called.co.uk/Number/01612776656

Could be a so called trusted partner but who cares? I have had two and the number has now been added to my auto reject list...

This number called this morning (after sevral weeks of missed calls). Operator was aggressive and wouldn't take no for an answer. Phoned Customer Suport and apparently it is a number associated with the O2 sales team. Explained that agressiveness is not going to produce good sales figures (at least not with me) and received an apology.
