Call Barring only affects OUTGOING calls.

Anonymous caller reject only blocks callers that withhold numbers, not numbers that have no caller ID or are "Spoofed". If you need full call filtering then you need a compatible phone & a service like "TrueCall" to use alongside your existing provider.

Buy a phone with BT call guardian which will request the callers name before bothering you. Alternatively call Virgin Media on 0800 953 3333 and request a number change and make sure your new number is ex-directory.

Leaving Virgin Media isn’t going to solve the problem because it’s an industry wide problem.

I advise people only to use the number change option as a last resort with particular nuisance calls. VM only has a relatively small allocation of numbers per STD area, so the chances of jumping from the frying pan into the fire are much greater than with BT.
