International calls

How can I block international numbers ringing me? They ring at least 5 times a day at all hours. Its sometimes a recorded message or sometimes there is actually someone there. I am registered with the TMS service but this hasn't stop them ringing. Any help in stopping this would be greatly appreciated!

Re: International calls

Hi vic1971, unfortunately it is not possible to stop these calls coming through. Registering with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) can help reduce calls from UK companies inside the UK.

 

I would suggest contacting our Sky Talk team to raise this issue further and possibly request a number change if this persists or starts to get worse.

Re: International calls

Hi cassaman, 

 

Thank you for your post. 

 

It is possible that if you have not opted out of marketing preferences that Sky could have passed your details onto 3rd party companies, however this is unlikely to be international numbers
