"Restricted" Calls To Your Cell Phone

Hi all,

In the last few days I've gotten "restricted number" phone calls in the early AM (midnight to 0200). Obviously, I'm not answering them, but messages are being left that I'm pretty certain belong to somebody else. I don;t recognize the voice so I figure that it's a misdial or somebody from work is ****ing with me.

Never had a restricted call until early this week. So I'm not sure how to research and discover what number they are coming from.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, I can't help you, but that's annoying. It happens to me every once in a while too. I guess you could notify your provider and they might be able to do something about it if it's happening repeatedly.

A restricted call is just a blocked caller ID number - anyone can do it. Aside from getting your phone company (and probably the cops) involved, I doubt there's any way you can get to the real number.

Extreme Call Blocker app. I think it's 2 bucks or 5 bucks.

Works great.

You can tell the app to instant hang-up (no ring-tone). Send straight to voicemail or no voicemail.

You can plug any number you want in to have it blocked.

And you get 4-5 prefixes that ALL calls will be blocked from

Ex: 800, 866, etc. etc.

Works pretty nicely.

That won't work when you don't know the number, will it?

Also, FWIW, that functionality is built into Android if that makes any difference.

I had that problem once. I kept getting a called from a phone number with no number (errr...) throughout the day, and couldn't get it to stop. I called my phone carrier, and they basically said "that sucks, but we can't do anything other than change your number."

I finally was able to figure out who it was and get the calls stopped. Not fun.

It's just some dude from Grain Valley that's calling the false number of the girl he met at Whiskey Tango.

A little more detail.

I'm living in California. New job. Still have the old phone number with a Western, MO/Eastern KS area code. Being as I took over a job where several folks were 'entrenched' and broke up a very old guard that had run the place for some 8 years, which caused some very hard feelings, I'm inclined to believe that this is willful conduct and not a misdial on the part of a local resident. But I need to find out the number to be certain.

Thanks for your help folks. If you think of anything else don't hesitate to post it up.

If all else fails, I'll blame it on billay.

That could be, but people around me are experiencing a rash of this too. Mostly verizon customers if that matters.
