If you receive repeated nuisance call, giffgaff can help investigate them. They can't block a particular number from calling or texting you but you can change your mobile number. This process is cannot be reversed to make sure it's really needed first. If you are determined to go for it, this is the right guide here https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Solve-your-questions/Can-I-change-my-Mobile-Number/ta-p/3488137#se...

However, On most smart phones you can install a call blocking app to block calls to spec numbers. The app i would recommend installing is Mr Number available for Apple iPhone and Android devices the download links can be found below.

IPhone : https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mr-number-call-block-lookup/id1047334922?mt=8

It’s difficult to block a unknown number, but if the caller I’d is displayed than your phone can be set to block that number or use an app. If it continues report to the police who can investigate and deal with the issue.

Hi  @juabbott79

 

Could see if a blocking of numbers app on the app store could install to mobile and use to block numbers  or be a number change if wanted to >> https://giffgaff.com/profile/details#msisdn

It's possible to block private numbers, but this will block ALL private numbers.

Try using an app such as Truecaller.
