Someone gave my cell phone number out as their own to a creditor. Well
now I get calls everyday wanting to talk to this person. I have tried
for two weeks to nicely tell the creditor that you have got the wrong
number and please dont call again as this is a cell phone. Well they
call everyday using an unknown number. Is there anyway I can block
this? It drives me crazy cause everytime they call, I lose minutes.
Any thoughts?

When I asked Cingular the same question, they said no. They allowed me a
one-time courtesy phone # change, which I did.

you can add an entry to your phone book named 'private number' or
'unknown number', in the # section enter a single pause and nothing
else. Assing it a silent or vibrate ringtone. Now when they call it
will still ring but you wont know it. It will then roll to voice mail.
Best I can do for ya.

Say this: "Do not call my number anymore". They have to stop if you
say that.

If it's not a problem for you, you could send the calls to voicemail
and call them back from a landline. Read them the riot act.

try YOUMAIL.COM i set my fiance's phone up with this because we got harassing phone calls at anytime (i mean like 1am, 4 am, 2pm, 6pm, didn't matter what time it was) from a heavy breather ... and of course, it was from an unknown number... youmail.com saved his cell phone number that he's had for over 7 years now because we don't have to give it up!

I believe if a creditor or someone like that calls after hours, you can legally report them.
They will owe you a few thousand dollars, I took a class through Dave Ramsey an he spoke on this specifically.
Once they know you know..they won't do that..esp when they are stuck paying out.,....
