Strange Telephone Calls

Lately I am getting telephone calls that say unknown and they are missing a number.  Like 20-175-0346 was one of the numbers that recently called.  What kind of a number is that? Since switching to Verizon from Optimum, I am bombarded with calls from whoever.  I do not answer any of them, they never leave a message, but it bothers me that I am paying for this.   ACR does nothing.  So do I pay extra to have what 20 calls blocked?  I need more than that.  Call intercept is gone.  I can set my phone to do not disturb but that is not the answer.  I can keep ignoring the calls but they aggravate me.  I cannot get rid of my telephone service because my husband's family is in Portugal.  Having an unlisted number did nothing.  So Verizon, what is the answer? Switching back to Optimum?

I would suggest the Digitone Caller ID/Block.  We seem to be getting a lot of unwanted calls to and to only be able to block 10 of them online is ridiculous.  You could also get a Google Voice number and use that.

That looks like a non US phone number.  20 is the country code for Egypt.

When you switched to Verizon did you get a new number?  If so that could explain why you are now getting so many unwelcome calls.
