How to stop ghost calls (constant calls from 1000, 100, 1001, etc)?
A guide on how to combat ghost calls
A ghost call is a call in which, when the recipient of the call answers, there is no one on the other end of the call, or you could receive calls from random (short) phone numbers with no one on the other line when you answer.
You may try the following solutions:
Log into the phone's web interface (using an IP number).
Select 'Settings' and then select 'SIP'
Change 'Local Sip Port' and 'TLS SIP Port': change from, e.g. 5060 to 5160 and 5061 to 5161.
Set your firewall to be more restrictive. Our advice is to permit all SIP / VoIP traffic from our platform. The IP range you should use is 184.108.40.206/23 (or 220.127.116.11/24 and 18.104.22.168/24). All other SIP / VoIP traffic you can block.
If the above does not work…
Some information from the Yealink page
