Android :: All Calls From Unknown Number?

Aug 3, 2009

In the past week or so when anyone calls my phone, the number comes up as "unknown". If the person is on my contacts list, their name comes up as unknown & if it's a regular number like my work or Dr office it also comes up as unknown. Even if I make a call, my call log shows the number I contact as unknown, even if I check my voicemail. It's driving me crazy since I always screen my calls. I an on a G1 phone and my carrier is T-Moible.

HTC Desire :: Random Calls By Unknown Number

Aug 25, 2010

I have my HTC desire a couple of weeks now and I have some weird problem.At random times I get a call by an 'Unknown' number. When I answer the call there's no one there and the other side hangs up.The problem started when I got my new phone so I don't think it's my provider.Also it can't be a prank caller.If it was I should've at least heard something on the other end of the line.Does anyone know what causes this problem? A bug perhaps?

HTC Droid Eris :: Call History - Unknown Number

Oct 14, 2010

Moving on, my problem has to do with "Call-History". What I've noticed is that while I can see the phone-numbers of people in my contacts list people whose number I do not have show up as, bear with me, "Unknown". When I navigate to "Call History", (Say a friend whose number I don't have calls me). I can't add their number to my contact list. This is an increasingly frustrating problem for me. I'll navigate to the "Call History" screen and find that there's no way for me to identify what numerical-phone number called me. There will simply be the designation; "Unknown", while holding down on the entry (while the time/length of the call can be viewed). There is no way to add nor even view, the again, [Unknown] number to my contact list. Phones are ultimately communication devices, if I can't find a solution, well, I'm convinced that I'm going to have to down-grade from a smart-phone to something capable of recording and adding unknown numbers.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Unknown Appear In Call History Instead Of Contact Number

Apr 10, 2010

I've been dealing with this for quite a while - I'm finally just getting fed up with it to the point where I'm actually doing something about it. I use GV exclusively probably half of the entries in my phone history appear as "unknown". Its also hit-or-miss if the contact's name appears when i dial out or when they're ringing in. Also, when me and another contact call each other back and forth several times, sometimes their info appears, sometimes they appear as "(unknown)" -- its baffling me.

HTC Desire :: Local Calls Appearing As Unknown Contact

Apr 25, 2010

Just received my Desire yesterday and I cant keep my hands off it. Anyways this is my problem...

Since I travel and change my SIM quite often, the nos. of my contacts have been saved with the country codes so that I dont have to keep adding digits when I have to make calls. So because of this when I receive Local Calls ie calls without country codes it says unknown contact even though this contact is saved in the phone.

Example: 00974 123456 is saved in my fone....00974 is the country code and phone no. is 123456. When i receive a local call from this no. it shows 123456, and hence the Desire is not recognizing the contact.

All contacts are saved in phone memory.

HTC Incredible :: Changing Number - But Have Calls To Old Number Sent To New #

Jun 2, 2010

I'm selling my house, and my old phone number (which is still active), is on the advertisment signs and MLS. So, I'm going to keep paying my bill month to month for that account until I sell the house.

However, I'd rather not carry around 2 different phones. I did not port my number to my new service as my old number was not "local" to where I live now.

So, I have service with T-mobile and now Verizon with two different numbers. Can I set-up something where anyone who calls my T-mobile number, will ring through to my my Verizon phone/number?

HTC Droid Eris :: Block Unknown Callers Incoming Calls?

May 28, 2010

Has anyone found any good call blockers to prevent unknown callers from junking up your voicemail? I've heard about GBlock and aFirewall but they're not complete solutions. looking for something that shuts down an unwanted caller with NO voicemail option. Even better - an app where you put in the numbers you wish to accept and have anyone else who calls in get rejected instead of having to enter numbers you want to have blocked.

HTC Incredible :: Incoming Calls Don't Show Number

Oct 22, 2010

I recently switched from T-mobile to Verizon, and just picked up my nice shiny new HTC Incredible phone. It works great, with one exception.Whenever I get an incoming call, the phone just shows that I have an incoming call but doesn't show the caller's phone number, or the name if they are one of my contacst. It doesn't matter if the call is coming from a land line, a Verizon mobile phone, or whether or not they are on of my contacts, each time all it shows is incoming call, and nothing esle.I probably have some setting screwed up, but so far I can't find it.

General :: Phone Automatically Calls Number That Is Set?

Sep 1, 2012

I was thinking if i could have an app wherein i can set a particular date and time and at that set moment my phone automatically calls the number that i set. Also if possible the call should be disconnected as soon as the call is received at the other end.

I tried to search a little if such apps were existing i found an app called "Wakeup call alarm" which is not existing any more.one application of such an app is to call my landline number in the morning so that i get up from bed at least pretty lazy to wake up from bed in mornings.

Motorola Droid :: Calls Last Number Called By Itself When Locked

Jul 25, 2010

I've been having this problem ever since I got my Motorola Droid basically (November 2009). Sometimes my droid will dial the last number that was called by itself while it is locked.

Whenever I am done making a call or using my phone I hit the screen dim button at the top. Also I have the pattern lock code turned on. I also have a blue tooth headset that is always attached to my phone, its this Plantronics Discovery 925:

Amazon.com: Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth Headset (Bulk): Electronics
Amazon.com: Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth Headset (Bulk): Electronics

Basically my droid will just call the last number that I have called on it's own. This happens when I have it in my pocket, and when I have it just sitting on a table with nothing touching the phone or my headset. Sometimes like when my friend is right next to me, he will say hey your calling me, and ill take my phone out of my pocket, hit the screen dim button, and I will see that it is still locked with the pattern lock, but that a call is underway (phone call icon is present in the top left)

I was wondering it somehow my bluetooth making these calls, but as far as I know there is no way to actually make a call directly from the bluetooth, and at any rate the phone is locked.

I recently read another post saying that this may be caused by the phone automatically going to the call log after ending a call, so I downloaded this App that was recommended called "Not Call Log" and I have set it to make the phone go to the home screen instead of the call log when calls end.

However just yesterday I have just seen it call by itself twice even after I installed this new app, so it seems the app is not solve the problem. I have seen many threads on this topic but none with any solutions except to use the Not Call Log app, which at least right now doesn't seem to be fixing the issue.

General :: Screen Locked But Still Allows Incoming Calls And Shows Number

Nov 13, 2013

I have the screen locked. I get a call and I can still answer it and see the number and contact without unlocking the screen. This might be the same for texts, not sure yet.

I did some Googling and there seems to be a setting that can change how much the screen lock blocks. I think I checked everywhere in the phone but don't see this option. It's a ZTE AWE phone with jelly bean.

There's aparently simple ways to bypass screen lock if a phone's lost, but I still want it fully locked.

Android :: Use Program To Detect Tones / Phone Automatically Calls Number That It Dialed

May 5, 2009

In the source of Android I found programs written in language C ("dsp_core.c" and "dsp_dtmf.c") which are capable of decode DTMF. I've recorded (amr file) with my phone a conversation in which the one I'm calling dials DTMF tones from his cell and I would like to use the program to detect those tones and that my phone automatically calls the number that he dialed. My problem is I don't know how to use those two programs with the amr file I've recorded. If you need the programs because you haven't downloaded Android code source tell me and I'll send you them

HTC Incredible :: Google Voice Number Isn't Version Cell Phone Number

May 24, 2010

I've experienced two problems with Google Voice that are causing me to get charged minutes I wouldn't usually get charged. If I can't solve them, I'll have to go back to using my Verizon number. First, let me say that I'm using a new Google Voice number that isn't Verizon cell phone number or any other preexisting number. Second, my girlfriend is on my family plan, but she doesn't have GV yet. We're using the 700-minute plan, so we don't have a friends circle.

Problem 1: When I call my girlfriend's Verizon wireless phone using the GV on my Verizon phone, I get charged, and when she calls my GV number on my Verizon Wireless phone from her Verizon wireless phone, she gets charged. We don't cash in on our free in-network calling. I know, this should have been obvious, but it just never occurred to me until after I looked at the bill. I'd be able to work with that, though, and just select "Call without using Google Voice" or whatever when calling her if it weren't for the second problem. When people call my Google Voice number, I get charged when I don't answer. Usually, it's just a one-minute charge, but sometimes it's two or three minutes (don't know why). With anything less than an unlimited plan, minutes count. Not good.

General :: Forward Selective CID / Phone Number To External Number

Feb 15, 2012

Basically, i use my personal cell phone for work and personal use, i have multiple exchange accts that keep things sorted and seperated.

recently though i have been getting more and more business calls to my cell phone, during and outside of normal business hours.

what im looking for is an app that will take a selective group of contacts/phone numbers/CID strings and if it is a "business" call then forward it to a specific phone number (external number, the actual business line).

I have seen apps on the market and around that will forward calls to voicemail if they match certain filters, but i cant really seem to find an app that will forward to an external number. Any way I could accomplish this?

So, i heard after your done with an app, fixing all the bugs and such, you only pay 25$ to upload it to the store, and then you dont need to pay anymore, can I keep replacing content (music,texts,pictures) once I paid for my app to be in the store, like a new "digital magazine" a month like Rolling Stone or something, or, once i pay for my app to be in the store, i can't modify it at all, making me spend money again to upload "another" digital magazine in the app store.

Error [155] unknown error. The ROM Update Utility cannot update your Android phone. Please get the correct ROM Update Utility and try again. I rang Orange and they couldn't help. I managed to speak to someone who understood the information I was telling him but he was not able to help other than do a Google search whilst I was on the phone to him. The suggestion was that the internal phone storage is insufficient to handle the 103MB image size of the upgrade file. I have now deleted all my apps (after backing them up) and have 123MB internal phone storage available space which should easily be enough but I'm still getting the error.

Android :: USB Adb Connection Unknown Device Which Has No IDs

Oct 15, 2010

This month, I am not able to get a AT&T Samsung Galaxy Captivate to be recognized by my Win xp when I connect them with a USB cable. This is the same phone I had trouble connecting a few months back. With much help from this list, I was able to get them connected. (Win device mngr, red check mark, get ID, insert this ID in android_winusb.inf file and reinstall android sdk usb driver.) After the fix, communication was successfull for Aug and Sept (about 10 connections per monthduring a 5 day period). But this month the Win xp will not recognize the phone. The only thing that happens is that the device manager, usb, list is updated to include "unknown device" which has no ID's. I have talked to AT&T and Samsung. One person said that there was "an update Oct 5" and this bit of information got me introduced to Samsung tech suppor level 1 and then, after considerable talking, to level 2. Samsung level 2 said that I must have the specific USB cable that came in the box with the phone, I said that probably was not the problem because I have used this (motorola) cable successfully at least 20 times. Then all of a sudden I get a dial tone. So I drove the 20 miles, went into the owners home (while talking to him on his phone, he has mine to use beta testing) and got the cable. Results are the same with this Samsung cable. I am writting this long note becasue I have lots of time waiting for 50 minutes for level 2 support again. I am loosing hope that Samsung is going to be able to help me or possibly they recognize my phone # and know my problem is unresolvable. Does anybody have any light they can shed on this issue?
