Getting so many nuisance and marketing calls how do I change my number and make it blocked from anybody seeing it?
Welcome back to our community forums.
Sorry to hear you are experiencing this with nuisance calls. Are you getting these calls from the same number or different numbers? How long has this been going on for?

In 2 days we received 45 calls and it’s from a few different numbers.
Sorry to hear this @atky60. We can understand how frustrating this may be.
Please try the given link and let us know if you need any further help regarding this.
There are no new numbers available. All numbers are used ones that are recycled to new customers within 3 to 12 months of being given up.
Therefore, the possibility is you could just move from one problem number to another.
Best of luck.

Read this recent topic for why changing your number will probably not help, and may make things worse regarding nuisance calls
There are many more topics on the forum where a change of number has actually had an opposite effect to the one desired in reducing nuisance calls.
Consider getting a trueCall device
or a BT phone which has trueCall features built in (look for this in the product description).
These screen the incoming calls and prevent the phone from ringing with scam calls.
