    Long story short - for the past week or so, I have gotten a lot of phone calls from uknown number - something I had never encountered before. I picked up two times and the person on the other line stayed on for a couple of minutes but doesn't say anything. Any way to find out who called or do anything?

    Well, in my country you can do that, but you first need to go to the police, get a paper there, and with it go to your phone company.
    I think you can't request user identity who is calling from hidden number without the warrant from the police.

    As far as I know you can check its area code here to find out what country or area the person is calling from. That's it. To be honest I prefer to ignor calls from unknown numbers, unless I expect a call from a person whose number I don't know.

    Not sure how to trace it without seeking police help, even then if its just spam they will probably tell you to ignore it.
    If its always the same number that calls, you can block it.
    I know iPhone have a way of blocking numbers, and if I remember rightly, android will let you block numbers too (although not sure if the process is still the same).
    If you block the number then you wont receive calls or messages from them anymore.
