So, to answer people's comments: I'm not really going to change numbers, because I've already changed my number like 4 times for unrelated reasons, and I'm tired of changing it. I don't have a contract phone, and blocking numbers through the phone company is more hassle than it's worth, and probably wouldn't work anyway. I have no smartphone, so I can't just get an app. Not gonna take legal action against them because this is not a sue happy country. I have already told them not to call me, many many times (would be stupid not to have tried that already). After six months of two or three calls from them a day, ignoring them is not as easy as it sounds. There is no "do not call" list in my country. The most ridiculous thing is that they're trying to sell me some English courses, and I've told them I don't even need them, but of course, they just want to sell. I'll have to muster up the courage to pick up the phone and play loud and freaky porn for them in the background until they decide I'm a deranged individual who shouldn't be messed with.

Yeah, if you have a contract phone, can't you block their numbers by contacting your service provider? If you have a Pay as you go phone, get a new one.

I don't think so. Atleast with AT&T. I actually came to their store in person and there was nothing they could do with the annoying number calling me.

An easier option would be to simply answer one of their many calls and tell them to "remove your number from their calling list." Always works for me. They legally can't call you again if you ask them not to. If not, you'll keep getting them because a computer goes down the list and repeatedly calls the numbers. Also, add your number to the national Do Not Call list, so other telemarketing places don't pay to get your number. You shouldn't have to pay to block it. Besides, some call from multiple lines in their network and it's impossible to block every individual number!

on my phone you just put the number on an ignore list. i had to do thar with a few telemarketers. they can technically still call you but you are none the wiser.

I worked as a telemarketer for about 6 days and then had to quit because I couldnt do it anymore. It was a terrible job but I learned some interesting insight. Most telemarketers have different choices when they hang up from an unsuccessful call. If you are stern or angry with them and tell them Do not ever call here again they usually mark you out of the system.

A telemarketer that calls a number on the do-not-call list risks an $11,000 fine here. Calling cell phones is also illegal for telemarketers as well. Of course I'm only referring to where I live.
