Is it possible to get a private number (unpublished number)


I have had my phone number for 4 years prepaid n never had a problem since switching over to a monthly plan I'm getting calls from God knows who and I don't know how they got my number n it's pissing me off. Is there any way of getting a phone number noone can find?

You can block the # to stop incoming calls. What do they want? Have you tried telling them the situation? Maybe it was a previous # that someone used who owed money or something.

Koodo doesn't publish numbers. An unlisted number does not prevent people from calling you, it just means there is nothing that associates you with that number publicly. Telemarketers autodialing blocks of numbers or people trying to reach the previous owner of the number will still get through anytime they dial it.

Hi Ann! You can also register your number to the National Do Not Call List: http://koo.do/1enhuux . Hope that helps :)

I have mine here and it usually works well. I tend to only get marketing calls from companies where I'm already a customer - meaning that I provided them with my number.
