I've installed Mr Number on my mobile phone and would like to block nuisance callers.

Are all "0843" numbers premium/spam callers and safe to block?

Also - are there any other prefixes I can put into Mr Number to prevent nuisance callers getting through?

I found Mr Number annoying to use. I use Afirewall from the playstore - it is way more advanced than any other blocker out there. You can block numbers and choose not to even see that they have tried to call or message you - it has soooo many options, but requires a little bit of learning. Well worth it in my opinion.

By the way, I never answer '08' numbers.
A good tip is to never give out your mobile number to all those companies that ask for it as 'id'. Southern Gas ask me for my telephone number to verify my details everytime I call them even though I have NEVER given it to them. It's a sneaky way to get your number on the system. You should hear them squirm when I ask them why they are asking for it when I have never given it to them.
The more companies that you give your number out to the more rubbish calls you will have to put up with!
