I’m throwing this out there hoping someone has a solution.
Since I got my new iPhone several months ago it’ll go through periods where it gets a lot of wrong number calls. After several weeks of this I started asking people the number they were calling, and that’s where the weirdness comes in.
(For illustration, this isn’t my number, don’t call). My number is (817) 555-1234’ all the wrong number calls are for (555) 123-4xxx. For some reason the Bell system forgets my area code and drops in the middle three as my area code.
After about 10 calls from one person we figured out a fix, having the wrong number dialer enter a 1 before they dialed, and they’d get the number they were dialing. I suppose the good news is there’s only about 1,000 wrong number combinations I could get…
I have asked AT&T to look into it (to his credit the tech I spoke with realized it’s not something amenable to the first-level tech script, and spared me that), but I haven’t seen a change and haven’t heard back from them.
Other than getting a new number from AT&T, any ideas?
