Incoming premium rate calls

is it possible to stop ALL incoming premium rate calls on my mobile - I know all about call baring Outgoing - however I'm lead to believe it is technically possible to block incoming as well. Would appreciate help.

Re: Incoming premium rate calls

Not sure of the relevance of "premium rate". There is no charge for incoming calls (unless you're roaming).

The easiest way to stop any caller is to blacklist their number on your handset.

Re: Incoming premium rate calls

Thanks for your reply - I understand the normal call charges, and the way to block specific numbers - however the premium rate numbers I'm trying to stop are the random problem calls starting with various premium rate prefixes, that charge the recipient for just receiving them and can add charges to your account without you knowing - it's called a 'scam' -  Google "premium rate call scams" to read how many people (including  a friend of mine) who have been scammed for varying amounts.

Re: Incoming premium rate calls

Welcome to the forums Patann35 Smiley Happy

I'm afraid it is not possible to blacklist all premium rate numbers on our service.

If you are charged for any premium rate or scam calls you didn't make, please give us a call on 789 or 0345 6000 789. We'll be more than happy to help.

Thanks,
Mat
