If these phone calls are occurring regularly, it is understandable that you would get immensely frustrated. However, if you do not want to change your phone number then ignoring the calls is one of the only options you have.
This could be made easier if your phone has a caller ID display. Even if the phone number is unknown, this will be displayed on the screen of your telephone. This will tell you that this is a prank or pointless call and you can take confidence in declining the call.
You could get in touch with your network provider and see if they can offer any assistance. They can help you block telephone numbers up to a certain limit. Nevertheless, this is problematic with blocked phone calls because you do not have a phone number that they can block for you.
For people who own smartphones, there are a number of applications that could come to rescue when unblocking blocked phone numbers. Install the application onto your phone and see if it can work its magic. Some applications even claim to be able to blacklist and record incoming calls.
If all else fails, you may be forced to change your phone number if you want the calls to stop. It is by no means ideal, but if the caller’s number remains unknown then you have no phone number to block out from calling you.
These calls, especially if they are coming from telemarketing and other such origins, often arise as a result of your personal details not being protected correctly. In future, try and be careful and selective with where you dispense your phone number. Although personal details should be protected by law, these details can sometimes get into the wrong hands.
Someone keeps calling me and I don't have caller I.d. They don't say anything and just sit there until I hang up. There was one time they acted like they were my boyfriend and when I asked who it was they said his name. I started noticing that it didn't sound like him through the conversation because at first there voice was kind of raspy and then something didn't sound like my boyfriend and I said "this doesn't sound like "" and they hung up. Now they keep calling at 2-3-4-5 in the morning. I am kind of scared. Should I report this to the police?
When this person calls, does he or she say anything? You didn't specify if it is a prank call, or sexually explicit call. If so, its not something to take likely. Take this very,very seriously and call the police. If this call comes in, and nothing is said, it could be anything or anybody. Most business or spam calls are computer generated and it sometimes takes up to a minute for someone to come on the line. I need to know what, if anything is said by this caller. Let me know
I keep getting collection calls for 2 people I do not know. I keep telling them they are calling my cell and using up my minutes, and they say don't answer the call, I pay my bills and have no need to screen my calls. It makes me made because I purchased my phone for me to use not them. I tell them I do not know these people and they say well they give your number, Well if they aren't going to pay their bills what makes this person believe they are going to give good information. I just want these collectors to stop using my minutes. They don't show who is calling to give me a choice of not answering.

It is upon you what severity you would give to this matter. The simple thing to ignore this is not to attend the call as you can see CLI on your phone. But if it bothers you too much then you can trace out the origin of the number by yourself to call the person and threaten him for his wrong doing. The last thing should be to file the case if he still doesn't stop.
If it's an UNKNOWN number its a machine calling your phone. If It's a BLOCKED number it's someone calling from a landline and/or cell phone. You can either A. Block the number from calling by contacting your phone company OR B. Change your number.
