How to manage unwelcome calls

We have all experienced this from one time or another; getting a call that we would rather not receive. Whether this was a hoax, marketing or something more serious, there are options to stop receiving these calls. These range from blocking specific numbers on your device to opting-out of certain types of calls or as last resort – changing your phone number.

 

Before we get into the options, if you are receiving harassing, calls or messages that are life-threatening, contact the police immediately.

 

If you receiving calls from a specific number or contact, then you can block the number directly from your handset. Steps will vary based on your device, check out the links below.
