Hi

just wondering if anyone gets calls from this number

keeps calling my phone throughout the week and hangs up 0275 617 610

dont like to call it back in case its a scam.. not being a vodafone number
cant be some new call back service from them

no way to do a call id look up offline is there? 027 thats telecom ?

could be someone doing the wrong number and hanging up but
one day it rang 5 times in a row and hang up

for now Im adding it to my blocklist android app

think vodafone now offer a block option on website if log in as well
not sure if its free or not though

the carrier prefix in the front means little these days with number porting. It could be someone on any of the carries.

Telecom ceased to exist about 2 years ago.

blocking it with app has solved.. no longer rings at annoying times
havent tried vodafones blocking options though.

only reverse sites seemed for USA didnt see any for NZ

as the said here number transfers and if its prepaid etc could make it impossible to know
