is it possible to have Virgin media change my mobile number to avoid pest calls and texts .

I have just recently started receiving a high volume of nuisance calls and texts. Is it possible that Virgin can change my mobile number for me. I subscribe to all Virgin media services.

Thanks in advance

My understanding is that they will change your number for free once per year as a solution to "harassment". I'm pretty sure nuisance calls and texts qualify as harassment.

Is the number registered with TPS?

 

A lot of people register their landlines for this service, but omit to register their mobiles. The result is that a lot more marketing calls are now being targeted at mobiles that are not on the list. To register, go to:

Rather than change your mobile number, have you thought of installing a Text & Call blocking app?

 

I can recommend Call Blocker, you can download it from the Google Play Store and use it for free; but this only allows you to store up to ten numbers, whereas the premium version allows for unlimited Calls and Text messages to be blocked.

 

If you want the premium version, and I really suggest getting it, the app costs £5.99.

Thank you everyone for replying. Each and every one of your suggestions was very helpful and gives me several options. Much obliged.

PS Just for your information folks the number is registered with TPS and I will be asking Virgin for a new number and when it is allocated I will also install the call blocker app. So once again thank you for taking the time to help.
