I'm getting phone calls and late night texts (and sexts) for an Edith. Edith appears to be a local teenager. How to deal?

This has been going on for months. It started with texts, and then ballooned into phone calls from guys, old ladies, herbalists, you name it. At one point I got a text that included Edith's full name, so I tracked her down on Facebook. Turns out there's a likelihood she's a high school student, which makes my tracking her down seem really bizarre and creepy. I sent her a polite message explaining the situation and asking if she would update her contacts. No reply from Edith. She did not update her contacts.
I'm guessing that either: a) she had this cell phone number before me, b) she's mistakenly giving out the wrong phone number or c) she gives this number to people she doesn't want to hear from. Any way you slice it, this is supremely annoying. I don't want to have to get a new number and update all MY contacts, especially since this is the number I'm giving potential employers. Also, I don't want to send Edith a message with my full phone number in it because -- frankly -- who the heck is this person? What if it's not even the right Edith?
How to deal? These phone calls and texts only seem to be increasing in frequency.
