Re: Can u block a number

Hi,

I’m afraid Virgin aren’t able to do that but if you've got an android phone you can download an App to block calls & texts.

I downloaded an App called "Calls Blacklist" (there are many others but this was free & I've found it effective). It prevents you receiving calls & texts form any number given it.

Great for all those PPI etc & people claiming you’re owed money for an accident as well as anyone you’re just trying to avoid.

Just to add to AlexKid's great post.

Most modern handsets can also block numbers without needing an app. Its sometimes easier to manager through the app though Smiley Happy

Re: Can u block a number

Hi Tmx88

May I point out that network providers don't block numbers for you, nor is this a service they would offer.

Any reason why you want to block a number? Is it due to unwanted calls/ sales calls / malicious calls

If you are receiving malicious calls then Virgin can change the number for you.
