a while ago I missed a call. I heard my phone rang and when I was about to answer it, it stopped ringing. I checked who called but there wasn't any number. Is that really possible?

have you seen the japanese movie 'the ring'? enough said. lol! just messing with you mspitot. most likely it was an overseas call from a friend or a family member. perhaps it is from an employer you applied at that's based from another country? anyway, don't sweat so much about it. you'll do just fine. cheers!!!

Yes...Recenlty, my friend whose like a brother to me and I had a chat on facebook. He's working abroad and he asked me if I still got my same number. I said yes. He said that he'll call me when he's free.

No number or the number was unknown to you? I always get some phone calls from numbers that are unknown to me too. It would turn out that the caller got my number from our common friend. Although some would only be mistakenly dialed as to the last digit.

No, when someone calls whose number isn't saved on my phone, their number still shows but this one doesn't literally has number. "No number" is what appeared on my phone.

Yes, it is possible. I also notice it once I have my friends in other country call me on my mobile phone. It always appear "no number". My ex boyfriend was from USA and other friends are in Singapore and Africa. Whenever they called, I do not see any number on my mobile phone.

I will just know who is the other person in line once I hear the voice. Aside from that, my ex boyfriend and friends are always introducing themselves once they called. Maybe you have a friend abroad who are trying to call you. Or maybe, you have given your number to someone long time ago.

Yes that is possible. If there is no number, it might be that the call came from outside the country or if the caller is using a public phone.

Just a bit of advise, do not answer those kind of calls, because some of these calls decreases your load, if you are a prepaid user. If you are a postpaid user, it will just keep calling and calling you until they can identify your sim id and use it for something else.. I do not want to share how it works, but I am just giving out a warning as a fellow member.. :)

If I remember it right, it happened to me, I guess that call is coming from outside the county. Might be using public pay phone that's why "No number" appears.

Yes, that is possible. I believe you just receive an International Call.

Sometimes it depends on the caller id option of the cell phone and in some cases calls from call centre come without showing the number. Have a nice time.

My phone's caller id is turned on. That is why I got puzzled when it happened.

Do you mean hidden or private number? The caller can set his or her number to be hidden. Some operators activate this private number by default, while other operators do not activate this unless you ask for it. Check your mobile phone and browse the setting. This setting is grouped in the security setting, if I am not wrong.
