    Hi, there is this girl that I like and everyday somebody calls her phone and harrasses her. Sometimes they talk, sometimes they just push buttons, but either way it's getting REALLY old! They always call from a restricted number so we aren't sure who it is... is there any way we can find out the # and do something about this, or will she just have to change her #?? Thanks!

    Re: People calling from restricted #s!

    Short answer is NO.

    Long answer, if you involve the police and her cell phone carrier, and THEY can find the Number and who's calling and contact them to stop, but YOU and your GIRLFRIEND won't be finding out who's calling or getting the number, unless they mess ..the caller(s), up and call from an unrestricted number. So while it can be taken care if, the long asnwer is still NO, as far as you finding out anything.

    Your options are:

    Setup a contact in her cell phone's, phone book, so that when resticted/blocked/private/unknown callers show up, they ring silent, and go directly to voicemail.

    Change her number and limit who it's given out to, as well as telling people not to give it to anyone else. More likely than not, the caller is either someone she knows and it messing with her for some reason, or the number she has used to belong to someone else, who was getting these type of calls.

    Thanks for the quick reply! That sounds like a good idea making it silent/go straight to voicemail when those numbers call... I'll try it later tonight. Again, thanks very much for all the info!!

    Re: Can I stop people calling from restricted #s!?!

    Ok there are two things ytou can do. if u are verizon get do not disturb.... its 2.99 monthly or 16 something unlimited. but its pretty nice. you can block specific numbers, toll free/unknown numbers, private numbers (ppl who dial *67), and block calls during certain hours. It blocks these calls for you and keeps a record of them for you.

    Also for those pesky people who call restricted to prank you or what not, get trapcall. the basic plan is free...it allows you to show blocked numbers. its not spam it works and doesn't ask for any credit card numbers. what it does is the call comes through as restricted. press ignore...the call will go through their system and a couple seconds later you'll get a call back from the same person but the number will show. the person will never know. (tip: if you have a ringback tone the ring back tone will play until it gets put thru the system at which time it will switch to just ringing.) its a nice free way to get the numbers of those prankers or people who are harassing you. There are other plans that have more options but they cost

    It depends on what phone she has. I had a phone that could block all private and restricted callers, they would to straight to voicemail.
