six-digit phone number?

Hot Sauce 1,724 October 19, 2007 at 04:19 PM
Has anyone ever gotten a call from a 6-digit phone number? I have one on my missed calls list from a few hours ago. Confused It just says 805-275, no area code (my phone usually displays area code from all incoming calls, even if its from my home area code)

All of the USA uses the 3-3-4 phone number scheme.

BUT, it is very easy to spoof a *fake* phone number (in your case 805-275). I'm sure it was a telemarking or similar company, and they spoofed thir number wrong.

Text messages from AOLIM come from 6 digit numbers.. it could very well be an AOLIM phone call.. or perhaps a Skype to Cell call.

Hot sauce, you're such a goober! LMAO

I think you might have looked at it wrong on your celly. I'm sure that if you checked it out once again, you might see that there is prolly more than just those numbers that you see... In any case 805-275 is an area code and npa...

In this case, 805 is California - and 275 is around the Santa Barbara area. (Google it)

Double check your celly, as I'm sure it will have more of the numbers or something. If you're still puzzled, call your cell phone company. Have them pull it off their records.

Anything on the PSTN is required to have the 3-3-4 protocol. Skype to cell would require PSTN as the terminating carrier would route through a cell phone tower - and any and all cell phone towers are based off of a T-1 or higher land line circuit from a LEC.

AOLIM is different because its actually SMS based; come to think of it - I don't think you can actually make calls through it, can you?

I thought you could make calls from AIM.. I could be wrong. I use Pidgin, but I thought I remember having the option to when I still used AIM.

laugh out loud I'm pretty sure that it says just says 805-275. I'm looking at it as I type. My phone number usually displays incoming calls as (###) ###-####, so I dunno if it's an area code

And wth is a goober Confused laugh out loud

^YOU are a goober. nod

It has to be an area code... There could be a malfunction in your phone. I'm thinking that (even though this is VERY RARE) - during the caller id transmission of the number calling you - the last 4 digits could have been dropped off due to an error or something...

Have you tried to redial the call? I know on my phone it lets me just call the missed number back... And like I said, if all else fails, call your cell phone company in the morning and have them pull it off their records.

I'm sure that you'll find out that it was a call from an 805 area code and 275 prefix.

Like I said, you can easily spoof any phone number you want. Heck, when you call out on skype, many times you'll get a "000-000-0000" number. Or when blockbuster calls to tell you that you have a late movie rental, you might get a "999-999-9999". Or if you have alltel and they send you a text message, it may show that it was from "68-646".

The point is, the caller id can SHOW anything. It doesn't have to be in the 3-3-4 setup. I'm sure it was just a telemarketer or some other form of advertisement.

It's probably from Skype... but those usually default to 0123456789... it could be the phone system, my work phone shows only the last 4 digits of my phone number on caller ID.
