No. If you file bankruptcy, you are basically telling the creditors that you don't have any funds to pay them.

If you file bankruptcy and file a chapter 7, if the judge approves your appeal all your credit card debts are erased, and creditors have to stop calling and harassing you. If you file a chapter 13, you are still responsible for a certain portion of your debt, to be paid over a 5 year period, and creditors have to stop calling and harassing you.
