So some idiot keeps prank calling me with a private number, It's really starting to annoy me, I would just not pick up a private number but because of my business I don't want to miss calls of my clients...At first I thought it was a few drunk friends but now it's to the point where it's just immature and annoying..worst of all is that they know my name too..I wish I could find who the loser is and beat the living stuffing out of them.

I tried to do a google search and it seems that your phone provider won't give out any info on the private number nor can they block incoming calls, so does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to change my number cause I've had it for so long, thanks.

Either that ^^ or call the police. I don't know if they will do much about it but it is illegal to harass someone so they should help you.

My sister had this issue and it came to the point where they were calling every night. She called the cops (obviously not the emergency line). The officer helped to track down who the person was and gave the guy a talking to. He never called again.

Just *69 the number and it will call it back, regardless if blocked call. Then once you have the number, put about 10 craigslist ads for free stuff with the number. The caller will receive hundreds of calls daily, good revenge :).

I made prank calls with public telephones, was funny to hang up and watch the phone ring a few minutes later at the time, looking back now it still is funny to see a public phone at the skytrain ring and NO ONE pick it up.

isn't there a 'this number does not accept calls from blocked numbers' option or is that with the cell phone only?

Call the police. A case could easily be made, it is costing you, and maybe others (assuming they are just not calling you) money. You'll be doing a justice if you do, and possibly save dozens of others a lot of grief.

I don't think that works with private numbers.

Also OP, I had the same problem once. Someone kept calling my cell phone with a private number. I called Telus, and they cooperated with me. They read me the last 10 incoming calls I had and the Private Number wasnt even on their records.

I have SHAW home phone and I have this feature. People have to unblock theor number to call me.

Also OP call your phone provider, just because you did some Googe research, it's not necesarilyy reliabe. Call your provider and hear it from them on what your options are.

Call the Operator(if they still exist) and make a complaint against the last number that called your line.

*69 doesn't work on blocked numbers.. What's the point of having a private number if anyone could find out the number after you called?

Unless that's changed recently, it doesn't work.

This might be overkill, but *57 is a call trace feature. Regardless of whether its a blocked number, the number is logged through your provider and can be obtained by police request only. If the harassment is bad enough this could help.

*69 does work, it just costs money every time you use it. What other time would you need it besides a blocked/private number? If the number wasn't blocked, you wouldn't need to find out the number calling would you?

Who doesn't? And if they don't, that likely means they are on a tight phone budget. So....meaning they aren't going to have the money to *69 a number every time they want to know.
