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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
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.
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...
