Spamming my phone. I recently changed to koodo and all of a sudden my phone is being spammed by various numbers saying the same thing. They call me every 5 minutes some times. What do i do?

Hi Kamal,
What did spam calls say?
Which phone do you have? you can just block that number. I doubted they can have more than 5,6 different numbers. That is the easiest way.

Did you get a new number, or bring it from your previous carrier?
If a new number, you may have received one that someone else dumped for the same problem. Changing your number may be the best solution.

This is happening to us too. I have blocked 7 different numbers and they are still calling every 5-10 minutes with different numbers. We have had this number for years and it just started. How do I stop this... if Koodo cannot help, maybe we need a new provider!

Thanks for the advice! I have added my number to a no telemarketing government list ... And have continued blocking. Guess I'll just block until they run out of numbers.

Allan, I'll try the app too. Thanks!

Mats, I figured changing providers would also involve changing numbers, my bad. But thanks for an absolutely helpful comment.

Dinh, they're all 011 then the rest of the numbers change. Hopefully they run out.

Thanks!

If you just want to change your number, you can do so via selfserve with Koodo.

Download Mr. Number or similar from the Google Play Store is your handset runs on Android. The service providers have no control over who is robocalling you.

I just had three 011 calls spam calls today. Apparently from Yemen.
