Did not speak when I answered
I answered the phone and a very deep growling noise came through the other end. I think my pet dinosaur, Denver wanted to talk to me. Regardless...I didn't want to talk, so I put duct tape over my mouth. Now I only have thumbs to communicate, ironically, Denver does NOT have thumbs for this purpose.
Had a number of calls from this number over the last few weeks at all times of the day. Because I wasn't at work today when it called, I gave up and answered but there was no-one on the other end. Had another call since then which I didn't bother picking up.
Usually this number rings you if you have tried to take out a contract and failed, this number tends to ring you to talk about other options that are available.
As for the cold calling and aggresive calls that have been reported I have no idea.

Just had a blatant cold call from O2, i am with Vodaphone so i asked her how she had my details. After being lied to a number of times it transpired she was working for CW. Agressively talked over me, so i got her team leader and asked him to pull the tape. I have sent CW a mail also.
Mr O2 Dunstone Nov 29th, 2012
Called the number back (019-255-55601
"This is a non-urgent call and will try to contact you again in the future. Press 1 if you wish to remove."
"Please enter the number you wish to be removed."
*3 second pause. They hung up.*
Had and a text from Carphone Warehouse last week about upgrading and a phonecall this morning, silent call. Very odd how they've got my mobile number when I have never had anything to do with CPW. I have blocked the number now.

Apparently carphone warehouse
I've received 3 phone calls from the Carphone Warehouse today. Two from the 02086 175910 number and one from this number. The first time I spoke to them I informed them I was already in the process of upgrading my phone and was told by an Indian woman who said her name was John that I would be taken off of the list. I clearly wasn't since I received a further 2 calls. If you call the 01925 555601 number back you get an automated message and can put in the number you wish to be taken off of the list. Wonder if it'll actually stop them from calling me. Not sure I actually want to upgrade via the Carphone Warehouse anymore if this is the type of crap you get.
Never Spoke When I Answered

Exact same experience as Simon 01925 555601 has called 5 times in last two days, only managed to catch him once and he is trying to get me to sign up for a phone contract as my contract runs out this month. I am sure he said he worked for car phone warehouse. I have had missed calls from 02086 175910 as well. Car phone warehouse wont be getting any more money from me.
I answered and ordered a pizza, but never got it. Extremely disappointed.
I have had 2 missed calls from this number today plus another number. As far as I am concerned calling 3 times is pestering. I do work like the majority of the population, so if it is that important and necessary to call 3 times then I suggest you leave a message.
This number called me today unsolicited. I've had 4 others from 020 8617 5910. I answers this time & told them they've lost my business.
Keep phoneing me because I assume my phone is due an upgrade and there trying to get me to sign up for another 12 months befor I phone and tell them that as my contracts up and no longer paying for my phone I'll have the sim only rate of £12 a month please, scumbags they make me sick I'll upgrade when I'm god damn good and ready and not because u want me to.
Look at all these comments... doesn't it make you proud.
Been repeatedly receiving too--exhausted after cleaning job and flying straight down jobcentre without change, then you get heranged by these yuppies.
Haven't they got enough?
I know I haven't...
Nobody Cares. Aug 22nd, 2012
Two calls today, first ever. I did not answer either. My phone has an auto reject facility, so I have added all Carphone Warehouse numbers to it.
I bought my new phone from them literally a month ago, and I've just had a call from this number. If this is carphone warehouse, I will be demanding they block the number.
Caller hung up straight after I answered
apparently it was Orange...
I am getting between 2 to 6 calls per day from this number. I'm starting to get well pissed now. They never leave a message and when I answer no one speaks to me. If I call it back I get a recording saying that its the car phone warehouse on a non urgent matter and to hold if I want to speak with someone. I hold then I get a recording saying that all the opperators are busy and it hangs up. How do I stop this? have I got to get a new number and ditch the old one? its starting to drive me nuts.
Called up but not speaking . 5 th time now
Gosh, Tori, there is absolutely no clue in this thread, apart perhaps from the same business name cited at least 93 times over five years.
Resident47 Apr 18th, 2012
Missed call, didnt ring them back as they didnt leave a message. Anyone know who it is?
Posted an ad in gumtree giving poker stuff away this is the number they have posted
I keep receiving calls from this number and they dont leave a message: its very frustraiting as they call at least twice a day. If it is Carphone Warehouse, I purchased a phone from them about 3 years ago...I would be reluctant to do so again if this is their standard of customer service.
Wouldnt speak when I answered
Carphone Warehouse -- probably harassing me because I requested an iPhone unlock. Had 3 calls today (which of course I'd have the pleasure of paying for if I was roaming!!) -- my assumption is that O2 are to blame because they are selling off customer lists to Carphone Warehouse to pester people into upgrading?
Keeps calling but won't talk upon answering, a little creepy and could make an older person live in fear, very Un-professional for a large company such as the Carphone warehouse.
Repeated messages left on answerphone asking to contact 0845-456-5598
on a financial matter, claiming to be TalkTalk. No written indication from TalkTalk (who I only happen to be with because they took over Pipex) that there is anything amiss.
Looks like attempted identity theft to me, and if Pipex confirm that the calls do not originate from them, I will contact the Police in this matter.
I also Keep getting these phone calls at all hours of the day, then they hang up. I've called the number back and I get an answer phone message from CPW. How can I stop this its driving me crazy?!!
So flipping frustrating they have called me three times a day for nearly 2weeks, when I answer no one speaks at the other end.I have tried to call the number bk and it says it's the CPW an that their advisers are busy and hangs up. Beyond the joke now!
Called repeatedly then hung up when answered
Wouldn't speak when I answered!
Makes sense that it is carphone warehouse as that is where my husband got my phone from. They are always calling to pester us to upgrade. The number that was calling me was 01925 555601. I answered a call 27/7/11 at around 8.30pm and said hello a few times before hanging up on them. Also got a call on 21/7/11 at 1.19pm from Orange asking for my husband and I told them the truth, my number is not his number anymore. Despite telling them for the last 1.5 years they STILL call and ask for him. That number was 08080 600702 but when I do a search it comes up as belonging to Vodaphone, whom we have never dealt with!
They're calling for another customer and i would like them to stop. Both texts and missed calls have been recieved from them.
Getting loads of these calls coming through. This isn't the only number. Have recently been on holiday and was wondering if when phoning home when abroad, your number maybe going through a system which is then logged and sold to these companies that pester you with calls?
Have been receiving 10-20 calls a day for the last week. Whenever I answer, there is no response.
This number has been calling me non stop for about 2 weeks. I have only answered once and there was no response from the other end. I thought if it was important they'd leave a message but never have. It's becoming a nuisance now :(
claimed to be from talk talk, but would not speak to me as my wife had not set up a password, which i know is untrue as I was with her when she did
claimed to be talk talk collecting a debt!
This number called me twice today; the guy asked for me using my full name (definately in a call centre)I asked 'who's speaking' and he hung up on me. How rude!
they must really want me to renew my phone contract - not happening
Carphone warehouse survey call
I couldnt get to the phone to answer it, and they left a message of a girl chatting to her co-worker. I guess they have realised my O2 contract is nearly up. Its not going to do them any good.
They call, don't speak then line goes dead. I call back, get their automated message inviting me to hold for Carphone Warehouse agent. Then told everyone's too busy and call back later. As they called me first, this is a joke. STOP CALLING ME!! I don't have any phones through 02 or CW so no need to call me!
I have just emailed a complaint to Carphone Warehouse directing them to this web site, if it's them they need to sort this out. If they don't I'll find a newspaper or a regulator to help them!
This number keeps calling and I don't answer as I don't recognise the number. Called it back from a land line and it's a fax machine. Have had more than 12 calls and it's very annoying.
Got missed call, no message. Recently received text about phone upgrade from Carphone Warehouse. Phone bought via mobiles.co.uk which IS a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse. Assume this number is in operation for many of their different companies like Talk Talk etc.
Am I being old-fashioned in thinking if I want an upgrade I'm perfectly capable of sorting it out myself?
Had a call from this number claiming to be from my BB provider (Pipex) and asking for password before notifying me of a problem with a/c. I gave a false p/w which they accepted, thus proving they did not have the real one. They wanted me to pay my monthly bill which they said was overdue. It IS overdue...by 2 days, but had their call been a few days later (by which time the D/D would have been paid so the scam would not work) and had I not been alerted by their acceptance of a false p/w, I could very easily have just paid them the bill. If you get a call from this number and actually speak to someone IT IS A SCAM!
called me today, i didnt answer, they didn't leave a message
01925 555601 Nov 02nd, 2010
Phone rang nobody spoke ???
Neil Beacock Nov 02nd, 2010
unsure, someone just talking to a co-worker ignored my greeting, Call centre tactics of calling to get their call average up!
This number is calling 4 - 5 times a day and never leaves a message - I am a carphone warehouse customer and feel better from looking at this website that it is probably them - but it is still very annoying!!!!
I rang the number back and it is the CPW calling on a non urgent matter, I hang on for an agent but, guess what they were busy and it abruptly said GOODBYE !!
hi ive been having missed calls from these fart faces, was having them a few month ago too. How do u get some one to actually look into this, surely they can trace the number? God it sounds like a looser with no job, and if it eva gets caught, it will just get a slap on the wrist,
I work nights and I've been woken up 6 times by this number. I leave my phone on for emergencies so I panicked everytime. I'm so glad I googled it now and come across this page. I've had no sleep so I'm more than ready for an arguement!
they keep calling but its silent - how annoying
Silent call. I'm about to finish my phone contact so I suspect some a******* have gotten a list with a view to scamming.
Just got a call from this number saying it was TalkTalk and there was an issue on my account and before I could say anything she asked for security details to prove who I was. I stopped her and asked what the issue was and she again wanted my security details first. I cut her off at that point. Looks like some scammers have got hold of a list of who is with what phone company and trying to rip people off.
Carphone Warehouse head office is located near North Acton tube station in West London. This includes the call centre. Wallington is South of London, nowhere near Carphone Warehouse.
i first had calls a couple of months ago from the 01925 555601 number. i was getting on average 12 calls a day. only once did they speak when i answered and they wanted to know if my contract was over yet and if i would be interested in a new one? i said no, but they carried on asking for lots of details like my name and address. after i hung up it stops. but 2 months later i get those calls again, about 12 a day from same number and now am getting about 6 a day from 016-121-6891
1 as well. no one here talks when you answer. had enough!
19 calls in 24 hours from them just did a google search as didnt recognize number, reang back and do get carphone warehouse pricks where they a week ago when i wanted ma iphone 4 hahaha fook em robbing gits
Picked up but no answar
Greg Smith Jun 29th, 2010
Keeping getting calls from this number. I have repeated said the person they want doesn't exist on my number. They said they where going to 'update' the system. They never have. They also claim to have spoken to their client on my number but I live alone!!!
IM EX DIRECTORY DO NOT GIVE OUT MY NUMBER OTHER THAN TO RELITIVES..HOW DARE THEY,
I didn't answer it. I phoned it back and it says it is The Carphone Warehouse regarding a non urgent matter! So why have they phoned me 12 times in last two days!!!!!
Call, don't say anything for 5 seconds then hang up
They keep calling at inaproprate times, holding on for 5 seconds not saying anything and then hanging up
They keep on calling at inaproprate times and not talking, hding on for 5 seconds then hanging up
I have had 2 calls and they just do not answer when I speak.
They called me a 5 times now in two days, I answered once and then hung up because my iphone said the call was form east san francisco! 019-255-55601
looks like a uk number but don't be fooled!
Called me about 10 times this week. I just stay silent on the end of the phone or touch myself.
American male voice said 'hello', bouncing off a distant satellite, I said 'hello', then he hung up
They told me they were Tiscali - they are fraudsters I believe, the guy asked me for my details & I said if yr calling me then you should know them! & that should stop calling me & be ashamed of themselves!
unkown didnt leave message
It was O2 for Carphone Warehouse saying I was due an upgrade and they could get my new phone to me tomorrow... Why I'd need them to ring me if I was desperate for a new phone heaven knows. It sounded like it was an overseas call centre and I couldn't understand the man well, strong accent. I told him I was busy at work and that I'd sort it myself on the internet. Hopefully they won't keep calling! Maybe they thought I'd be daft and would sign up to a super expensive contract on the spot.
They knew my name and said they were calling from Talk Talk and then hung up!
I've had 15 calls from this number just today. They called me last year too. Do not answer any of their questions or confirm any details to them at all!

pain in the bum
Kim Stonebridge May 06th, 2010
Just spent 5 minutes having fun with their salesman peter. Told him in my best phonejacker voice that my name was George from Uganda, ha ha. He hung up on me in the end.
GOSH DONT THEY HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO.... I HAVE 14 MISSED CALLS FOR AN UN-URGENT MEASSAGE!
one of the many carphone warehouse sales teams trying to sell me a new contract,
I have had five calls from this number today. Including one call at 23:25. Ridiculous! CPW need to address this!
said orange but i think another coms company
paul field Apr 28th, 2010
Caller asked my name, found i wasn't the intended recipient and hung up on me. rude idiot.
I have repeatedly told them the number of the person to call and they keep bothering me.
Dean Pinnington Apr 28th, 2010
they call over and over again and when you try to call back you cant speka to anyone. i get calls all times of the day and night and its driving me nuts, ive tried blocking them on my phone but for some reason they still able to call me. Anyone know of a number i can call to stop this
They said they were from the 'Orange team at carphone warehouse' Probably so that you hear Orange and assume it's them. Orange are my phone provider and this is a cheap trick to try and get me to change to CPW.
Keep getting this annoying calls from the number, as soon as you answer they han up, along with calls from another number 0161-216-8911
It seems as I'm at the end of my contract Carphone Warehouse are desperate for me to renew one with them. The first time they called I explained I have renewed through O2 and I am not interested in anything they have to sell, but 1 week on I am still getting calls from these numbers 4-5 times a day.
In the process of reporting them to Ofcom.
I thought telephone cold calling was illegal?
Didnt answer number of calls from CPW last few days
they keep ringing and dont leave ansaphone message - wish theyd stop !
called 5 times but never any messages
Over 10 calls today from this, they have been trying on this for several days now
Said they were Carphone Warehouse, asked when I was due an upgrade then thanked me and said goodbye
I am with talk talk and get these calls reg, maybe talk talk is the key here. anyone else that doesnt have talk talk that get these blinkin calls.
I received a call from this number earlier today. Someone claiming to be from the Carphone Warehouse told me I was eligible for an early upgrade. I did not continue the discussion and said I was not interested in an early upgrade. If you call the number back, it does actually go through to the Carphone Warehouse but in this day and age, you can never be sure who you're speaking to when you receive a call. There are a host of shady businesses out there that call you claiming to be from reputable firms offering you excellent deals on handsets and tariffs but they are mainly boiler-room outfits.
They called me 15 times in one day. 5 times in another and never leave a message. How can one report this?
