I keep getting a call from this 210 number so I googled it and found it here...

[SIZE=4]WTFcalls.net - Do you have an unknown phone number on your Caller ID?[/SIZE][SIZE=4] [/SIZE][SIZE=4][/SIZE]
210-621-5840 210-621-5841 210-621-5842 210-621-5843 210-621-5844 210-621-5845 210-621-5846 210-621-5847 210-621-5848 210-621-5849 ...

From this site it says it is someone using a cingular wireless phone. I usually just don't answer calls from unknown people. But if I do and they ask for me I say she's not here right now.

If there is someone to talk with, find out who is calling. If not, just ignore it. I used to get some strange calls too ( also checked this site) , but they stopped finally...
Not much what you can do about it...

Thank you both, what freaked me out was when I saw the wtf.net. Odd huh? I get the call but no one is there or they are but dont say anything so I hang up. I am going to see how to block it on my cell.
Thanks again.

Is pretty hard to block # on a cell, I was told; maybe not even worth the effort - calls will cease pretty soon ( I hope)...

LovingSAT what you came across is just a website that lists millions of phone numbers. In doing so they will be the top result if anyone searches that specific number. They do not own the number and have nothing to do with it.

Whoever keeps calling was likely given your number. There are plenty of reasons why people give out fake/wrong phone numbers.

Not when you have that option on your phone. I see a number..I select it on my phone and chose: block this number. Not all phones have it. I have my service with T-Mobile.

There is a service that blocks spam callers...and when you've been with them (the service) for 30 days you can...if you so choose..press charges...the service is free. For the life of me...off the top of my head..I can remember what it's called..or the number but...the info might still be on a piece of paper somewhere

I now suffer from C.R.S.

If you're running a Blackberry or iPhone, you also have the option of downloading apps that block certain kinds of calls. I block all unknown numbers (sending them to a 'not in service' signal) and folks who I simply don't want to chat with.

With these apps, you can also send people directly to voicemail in the event you want to know what's going on, but not talk.

I recently bought a pansonic phone with a number blocking feature that's awesome! I didn't think it was available unless I had that type of phone service--which I don't--but this phone does it through its own system. Now whatever numbers I program that I want blocked and that number tries to come thru, it rings once and phone show "checking number" then it won't ring again and it's blocked. Absolutely love it.
