What an אנשיקעניש. I probably blocked already 50+ phone numbers from him on my landline, but he always manages to get through with new numbers. And for cell phones if you block it'll spam your voicemail. He likely makes money from tmimesdiga bubbys who have enough time not to become intimidated.

The phone calls go through Voice Over IP systems, which one can easily setup - and it takes a second to change your caller ID to any number you wish. I once had somebody who never picked up my phone calls (because he owed me money), so I changed my caller id to his home number and called his cell phone number. He answered right away, thinking that it's his wife.

How do you call out of that number?

Either setup your phone system with DISA - with a pin -  this application allows you to make calls from outside the PBX as if you are inside it
Or have a SIP client on your mobile phone, or a VoIP phone connected to your phone system - then you can choose any caller id you want.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Move your number to an IVR system - so if it's a real person -- they would need to press a digit to be connected to you.
That's what I do. Also, get a number from a different calling area  / state where you do not have any contacts  - majority of junk calls come from the same area code as your number - so don't pick up that area code / or block it.
How do I set up such a system, both for a landline and for my cell phone?

Interesting, I've never heard of that and I'll try it.
