How to Stop Wrong Calls/Miss Calls/SMS

The issue of unknown callers that disturb cell phone users is not new, but the momentum has reached its highest limit in recent months. Lowering tariffs are allowing the culprits to call and tease people with in-expensive rates and more comfort. I am not going into details on how people call unknown numbers and tease them (especially when they find girls on receiving side), but I want to discuss on how you can get rid of these calls. Also at the same time, how important is to report such numbers.

So the process is very simple, but at the same time very sensitive. You must take care of following things in case you get wrong calls

  • Never respond (call back) to any wrong call, what so ever. In case you feel like that the calling person could be your friend or family member, even then don’t take the risk of calling/messaging back the same number
  • Ignore once or twice, and then report your operator about this number, that you are getting un-wanted calls from this number. Reporting in this situation is very important and can save you from serious situations (I will discuss them below)

Once you follow these rules, I am sure your life will get easier. Reason for not calling them back is to ignore the person, and let him/her feel like a failure. By the way, this can turn out other way as well, by adding curiosity in the mind of caller, and he/she may start repeatedly calling you, but normally this doesn’t happen.

Then comes the process of reporting the number, for this you just need to dial your helpline, and tell CSR to note your complaint against number from where you are receiving calls. Your cellular company will track the calling record and will issue a warning. In case the person doesn’t stop calling you, complain again and tell them that this is your second complain. This time number will be permanently blocked.

Don’t hesitate to complain your helpline, if you are getting calls from 10 different numbers, report them all – and let your cellular company take care of them.

Why reporting a Number is so important?

Both of up mentioned points come into serious play, when the caller is involved in a terrorist or criminal activity. You must not call back and you must complain the number in order to justify that you had no connection with any such criminal. Let me give you an example for further elaboration,

For example, a criminal is going getting ready for a criminal activity, and he/she calls/miss calls you. And soon after he kills some-one or does carry out any other illegal activity. In such a situation, Police or any other law enforcement agency will look into call records of the culprits, and your number there can take you into serious account of investigation.

So avoid connected calls as much as you can. It is even wiser to accept calls only from numbers that you know. And report all those numbers that you find suspicious to avoid any situation latter.

    One main reason behind these calls is finding a random girl to have some fun talk etc, to avoid this situation Girls should not respond to those calls. If they feel it suspicious just ask any male around you to answer like Brother or Father and ask them to pretend as this is there number. That will discourage caller from calling again If he is calling to find a Girl on receiving end. If still he is calling reporting that number is of course a good option.

    Opposite case is with Girls calling random numbers and teasing or even asking for credits etc that is by the way common and such girls collect lot of mobile balance in just couple of hours (How pity Boys!) .

    And yes with new sim verification method , reporting a number will be more effective then ever. Now with every one with Sim registered to his original ID, once the companies find his previous connection’s history being blocked/reported they can either deny giving new connection or at least can give a warning. That will reduce the amount of mis use.

    Thoughts ?

    I think this is a good way that you should not respond to unknown number and also ignore it as far as possible.

  • Report the number

    but to report the Number, the compnay requires you give acopy of your NIC
    I Ask them why, If you need thecopy OK, act on it right there and then but they dont.

    On Mobilink side (lot of fraud SIMS, Free SIMS, Blacklisted SIMS) there is huge number of SMS Fraud, Call Farud. I came to know from One person working in thefirm that ther must be atleats 1000 complaints against a number to be checked and verified.

    @Gul Nawaz
    I think there is some one very close to you or your wife may be a relative of you who is doing all this. Because you have changed 5 times number of your wife but problem is same then a person with whom you are aware of can only be involved in it.
    I have a suggestion that once again change number of your wife and dont tell any one except you then slowely and slowely give the number, if required to your relatives and observe carefully. In this way you will trace the culprit behind this activity.
    Hope u have undertood my suggestion.

    I did complaint at Ufone Helpline, but in vain. They says that before registering complaint against any number, one has to pick up minimum 02-03 wrong calls or receive any message first, otherwise complaint will not be registered. Miscalls can not be complained. Now i have to keep cell phone in my hand and wait to catch one bell miscall. What the hell is this??????
