    You're either going to have to get call blocking or change your number.
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    I would think this would fall into the category of a harassing phone call.

    Can't you call your local PD and file a complaint?

    I think I'd to solve this via the legal system rather than with technology.

    I've heard phone spammers often mask their numbers so finding the area code and address and tracking them down yourself might just lead you to some innocent family's doorstep.

    I'm no expert here, but my guess is these calls are coming from another country, and their auto dialer puts a U.S. number on your caller ID.

    If they are out of the country, they are out of reach of any jurisdiction of any agency that could help someone out here.

    Like I said, I think CE has the right idea. You either get call block or change your number.

    Normally that'd be my first thought, for quite obvious reasons.

    But, the multi-state nature of the crime makes prosecution here in Cincinnati fairly impossible.

    It's bad to say, but the only way I have found to get these people to stop calling to too give them a good old fashion cussing. I had the same problem with a number several months ago. They would not quit calling. I went on a tirade and then they finally stopped.

    I'm really sorry about this. I thought you were an ex-girlfriend, and I was drunk. I'll stop calling.

    I've done that. It's my phone, and if someone doesn't like the way I talk, don't call.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Don't people generally stop calling you when they find out you're a Titans fan?

    Re: A number keeps calling my cell phone...

    You ever figure this out, CE?

    My parents are having a similar issue with their cell, except it's three different numbers from the same area code and city/state calling. I called Verizon Wireless and blocked all three numbers from calling my parents' phone as they have the ability to block up to five numbers. Hopefully it solves this situation, but seeing as how it's been three different numbers calling it may not.
