865-6696

Is anyone else getting calls from 865-6696 no area code?  I don't answer and they don't leave message.  I call that number back and it says it's a non working number.   Very weird.  I read posts that say its a known issue for Sprint iphone users.  Is that good info????  I also read where those numbers spells out unknown which is true, but what the heck????

I get these calls all the time and I finally got the chance to answer and it was a Pro Life group asking me to support their cause. So I guess its just a generic number that is displayed when you get telemarking calls like that. I just told them to put me on the Do Not Call list, we'll see if that works.

Re: 865-6696

My wife just got a call from 865-6696 today, so this problem continues even now.

After reading through posts on http://community.sprint.com/baw/message/386950#386950, I called Sprint Customer Care. The guy stated that he couldn't block either the 7-digit or 13-digit numbers that people are receiving calls from. He didn't appear to have ever heard of this before.

After no help whatsoever, he asked "Have I been able to resolve your issue today?" I almost laughed. Okay, I did laugh, and answered "No". He asked if I would speak to his supervisor... I said I'd be happy to. Well, after a couple of minutes of distorted on-hold music, I decided I'd had enough of this, hung up, and went to lunch. They had already consumed enough of my lunch hour.

If you guys read the other thread posted, you'll know that those numbers actually spell out UNKNOWN...

Re: 865-6696

So I get a call from 865-6696 and I have gotten a call from them in the past, they keep asking for someone and I tell them they have the wrong number so a few minutes ago I told a lady that she tells me " I have not called this number so don't have a nervous break down or I will blow you up" and then hang up the phone... Like wtf.... I called sprint and they said I can block them and for the area code just use zeros, if it continues to happen, i can change my number or go to the police...

This is a generic number used by various firms.  In this case it was my bank calling to find out if charges to my debit card were actually mine.

Re: 865-6696

I'm getting the same call from the 865-6696 number at least 5-6 times a day. They start calling from 7am till as late as 9:30 at night. I can't ever leave my ringer on because of this and that drives me crazy cause I too am missing important call because of this.

Re: 865-6696

I have started getting blocked numner calls in the middle of the night. Luckily I had my do not disturb thing on. This number called me at 1:30AM  cst and then at 5:30am they figured out to get past the do not disturb they just have to call 2 times in 3 minutes and they can ring. Not a fun thing first thing in the morning. There has to be a way to block these unknown/blocked numbers!
