    I keep getting a private number calling me and not saying anything though I can hear someone in the background. Is it possible to trace the number? if so how do I go about doing it? Could my phone company also block the number from calling me?

    You'd have to report it to the police in order to trace it. Chances are someone has just left their phone in their pocket and it's randomly calling people. I did this once at college and my mum wasted all my credit by earwigging on me ranting about how much I hate Xmas.

    the calls on private number..hence you cant see the number, unless you complain to the cops, in which case they can trace it for you, still takes time, and they'll only do it, if the calls are disturbing.

    Sometimes automated call centres will ring your number while no-one's at the desk to do any talking. Or so I've heard.
    It could be someone calling by accident, or an idiot messing around. You can go to the police if it keeps happening and you feel threatened by it.

    I'm sure there's a way. Would probably involve the police though.
