This number just started calling me today. I received 5 phone calls within 2 hours from this number 865-6696 ..... every time I would answer, they would hang up. It's driving me insane bc they just keep calling. Of course Sprint can't block this number without an area code. I need this number blocked!! Is there an app that would block this? The agent on the phone said to try blacklist. The apps aren't very helpful.
I get calls from this number too. Most of the time no one talks to me but once in a while it is a guy with Indian accent wanting to talk to me about Windows. Have told him several times to stop calling. No luck there. Just talked to Sprint and it comes into the system as "unavailable" but it comes into my phone as 865-6696. So there is no way to block unavailable. I registered with National Do Not Call list again and can file complaint after 31 days. Will see where that goes.
Carol from Sprint just called me back to let me know some of her coworkers suggested she add 000 as the area code (someone posted that earlier) and to let her know if I get anymore calls.
It's for collect calls. At least in my case. I have a friend in prison who calls and that is the # it comes up as. On my EVO and and Galaxy anytime he called it came up as unknown, so this makes since with the iPhone.
Has anyone had any luck adding the "000" before the number? I too am getting annoyed and this has been happening for months. And I've gotten the same response from Sprint in regards to them not being able to block or see the actual number.
