I believe that you can pay VM to block number withheld calls.  However, the downside of this is that legitimate calls from some NHS and other service numbers will be blocked as well.

Hi @pamparge 

Welcome to our community forums and thank you for your first post.

Thank you for your query. As mentioned by @Graham_A  it may affect legitimate NHS or service calls. You can find out more here

Edit: Info below in the post is suitable for dealing with general unwanted 'no number' calls. If the OP's 'no number' query relates to multiple 'no number' calls, on a phone connected via a Hub 5, appearing throughout the day without the phone ringing, then read the long topic linked below for this specific problem.

For general 'unknown' or 'withheld' callers, rather than pay VM a recurring fee for anonymous caller rejection on the line you could consider a phone which has the feature to block 'unknown' numbers (but noting Graham_A's warning that it may block legitimate numbers).

Alternatively, consider a call screening device such as trueCall

This screens calls (rather than blocks unknown numbers) by asking the caller to respond to prompts. This means legitimate 'withheld' callers such as medical services can still get through by completing the screening process.

List price for new units is just over £100. Second hand units regularly come up on eBay for much less.

And although others have waded in with responses, I think it is advantageous to check exactly what it is you are concerned about! Is it, as seem to have been assumed, you don’t want to receive calls from ‘anonymous’ numbers, or are you being plagued by ‘phantom’ no-number calls being recorded by your phone, when it doesn’t actually ring?

Good point. In which case the next question to pamparge is, are you using a Hub 5 and experiencing this problem described here

If so, the suggestions above in the topic are unlikely to resolve that particular Hub 5 problem.
