Firstly, there are no best answers in GD.

All you have to do is block them, your phone should have the ability to do this if you look through the call settings.

It is not always obvious how to do this.

 

On my phone (Android) I have to turn "do not disturb" and set everybody in my contacts as favourites - click on the star - which does mean that the favourites tab is not a lot of use, because everybody is on it.

 

Though this might be of help to @adria19476 https://www.wikihow.com/Block-a-Number-on-Android

@adria19476 hi - I have a contact for nuisance calls set up on my iPhone and add relevant numbers calling me to it. The contact is then set up to block calls from these numbers. 👍🏻 Only prob is a lot of nuisances change numbers but it’s better than nothing. Good luck. 😃

Block them on your mobile, and BT has a free service where you get them blocked.
