I have 54 phone numbers blocked with an area code like mine and still get calls all the time. Got 2 in the last 15 mins. I have HiYa and know where on my Cricket phone for blocking an area code or number but that sure doesn't work on my phone.

Gee I don't have a Facebook account anymore and never had a Twitter. Ironic that those are the only ways to resolve a problem with Cricket.
Make that 56 numbers I have blocked with my area code as of today. Whats the point of Cricket saying to block an area code on your phone when it doesn't work?
This happens with all companies though... not just Cricket Wireless. They are just trying to find a way to reach out to you and see what else they can do.
The best part is I have an Android phone that has a place to block area codes along with other numbers and it always says my area code is already blocked. But I have now 57 phone numbers with my area code that have called me since it was supposed to be blocked.
I might regret posting this, but isn't ironic that I have had no spam calls for over 2 days? Its like oh lets give this guy a break for a bit and then we'll get him.
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
2. Decide how satisfied you are with your current cell phone
"Bring Your Own Phone" BYOP - If you want to keep your phone, bring it to Cricket - just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with our network.
Get a brand new smartphone - Had your eye on one of the hottest new phones? Just need an inexpensive device that does the job? We've got a variety of prepaid smartphones, many with great incentives when you switch to Cricket.
3. Consider any issues you've faced with service you had in the past
Have you had a lot of dropped calls or slow speeds? With Cricket, you'll enjoy extensive 4G LTE coverage nationwide.
Are you fed up with contracts? There's no annual contract with Cricket's prepaid plans.
