If the caller has blocked his id then nothing on the end of your line will display it. However in most cases where the caller has blocked his number the *telephone company* can enter the number into their nuisance call database and block it from your phone.

If BT set it up for you (there is a special free number for nuisance calls) then you get a leaflet of advice, and whenever you receive a nuisance call you ring a number which adds the last caller's number to the database. You never get to see the caller's number, but you can still block it. If the nuisance caller goes to a different phone then you can add that new number to the database as well.

However if the guy never rings back then don't worry about it. There is nothing the police can do about people making crank calls at random. They have enough problems with genuine stalkers and more serious crimes.

(Yes, I realise how useless is my advice of "Don't worry about it". )

They probably wont do this for you for free unless it is a series of threatening calls.
