How to find out who is harrasing me from a Pinger number?

Asked by curiousk (125 points ) May 28th, 2012 from iPhone

For several days I have been receiving many annoying and harrasing calls and text messages. When I call the number, it says its a Pinger (free texts/calls app) number. How can I find out the identity of the person behind the number that has been annoying/harrasing me?

I doubt you can since it’s from a free service.

I doubt it too. Unless the app provides customer support and they keep track of all incoming calls, you may be out of luck. It’s a slight chance your cell phone carrier may have a record of this, not really sure, it’s a long shot but you could contact your cell provider. Have you tried searching for the number online?
Is there an option to block phone numbers within the app? If you can’t find out who’s been calling you, you might just have to block them so they can no longer call you or just delete the app altogether.

Block the number through your cell carrier.
Most carriers are able to block with an on-line request or web page ( must be logged on to your account with a password ).

OR

Go to your cell carrier’s local store and give a written request.
