Block harassing number

I am receiving frequent phone calls from 1-888-226-0228 for a person who isn't me. I have let them know that the number doesn't belong to the person they ask for and that they should stop calling. I now consider these phone calls harassment. How can I get Koodo to block this number from calling me?

unfortunately, Koodo can't block the number for you.
I would tell them that this is considering harassment and will report/file a complain.

If they don't stop, file a complaint to the authorities and block the number with a call block app. (There are many "Calls Block" apps to use it)

I don't know what phone you have, but with my Android phone, I have a contact entry called "Spam" where I put in the numbers of all the calls that come from telemarketers (shown by Call Display). Then I enable the "All calls to voicemail" for that "Spam" contact entry. The phone does not ring and they don't leave a voicemail because they hang up on detection of voicemail.

As Mayumi said Koodo cannot block numbers, and as quasarito said with Android phones theirs the option of marking the number as spam.. and lastly with iPhones that are running iOS7 or higher, if you create a contact for the number and save it, at the bottom of the page there's an option to block the contact.

You can block numbers from the call log on iPhones as well without adding them as a contact.
