Question about Cell Phones

3 Answers

I am getting harassing calls from a restricted number on my metro PCS phone. (1 every minute from 1230am until about 930 am. I have other people answer my phone and as soon as I hang up it happens again ... we can hear the person breathing on the other end) Trap call does not support metro pcs and metro does not have *57 to report call. HOW DO I UNBLOCK THIS NUMBER TO REPORT TO THE POLICE

    what is an FIR?

  • kimberly robbins Oct 13, 2010

    called phone serivce provider and they do not keep logs of calls. What now?

  • kimberly robbins Oct 13, 2010

    My phone service provider stated they do not trace calls or have phone logs. The only thing I can do is restrict blocked numbers but that does not catch the person calling me every minute from 1230am to 930-10 am every day for the past 2 days!

  • kimberly robbins Oct 17, 2010

    thank you all for your responses. I am now up to 70 calls per day ... even a few voice mail messages where you can hear him breathing. I will be going to the police first thing in the morning.

This is very common everywhere, but in most cases, this happens to be PRANKS (fake calls played by known person). There are several reasons how he could hide his number or how he makes such calls, could be someone unknown trying to play some bad or evil you like extorting money, etc... Or might be someone practicing and trying out the technique about hiding calling ID.

Actually, every phone company (service providers) should have the call log system that end users (consumers) don't have, if they don't have one, they are not authorized, you can file a complain with the police to your phone company. Every outgoing or incoming call should be recorded, though you can't see the number, all systems should detect the number. Most of all, if they have something suspicious, they use a high end system (I can't recollect the exact name) to capture, record and locate the caller, it's definitely possible, they can find out where exactly the caller is calling at the moment when he/she calls you. But to do all these, you need to be with the Police, otherwise you will not be allowed as this is related to Crime and Threat.

First of all, write a complaint letter to the police (FIR against unknown person), they will swing into action after getting the detailed information. Since you receive the calls between 12:30 am to 9:30 am, you can greater chance, it's clear that it is not a random call but between specific timing. This method is implemented by police when there's Kidnapping or Extortion, etc...

I hope this will be helpful for you. I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Hi,



    FIR is First Investigation Report provided by the police,The network provider wont give you the details of the caller until you provide the report from police.Because it is supposed to be very confidential.So when you get the FIR report go directly to the service provider office and they assist you furthur

Is posible to you transfer your working number to another phone


Yes its possible. A simple sim card swap should do the trick, but be warned different models may have different sim card styles. If it is just call your Metro PCS and order a new sim card. Most of the time they are free or only a few dollars.
Metro PCS phones usually keeps the sim cards behind the battery.

Type your problem for a solution...HOW DO I FIND OUT WHO CALLING MY PHONE RESTRICTED? I DONT HAVE HER NUMBER.....HER NAME IS VICTORIA BROWN 25, TEXARKANA,AR 71854


You can check your phone records at the end of the month, sometimes providers will "unmask" restricted numbers when they put them on there. You'll have to note the date and time of a call though. Another way to do it is to call up your cellphone provider and ask them how to go about blocking restricted calling. Usually it's a setting on the phone itself, but every phone is different. You can then change your voicemail to say something about you're now blocking restricted numbers, so if they want to get in touch either leave their number in a voicemail so that you can call them, or unblock their number.

If you're getting harassed by someone with a restricted number, you'll obviously want to call the police. They can get all this information almost instantly.

If you're trying to find the number for Victoria Brown, and it's not listed, you might not have any luck. However, I've had some decent luck on a site named spokeo. I took the liberty of looking her up on there, there are several different Victoria Browns who live in Texarkana, AR so you might have to check several of them until you find the proper one. The results of my search can be found by clicking on this link. Hope this answers your question, if not let me know!

When My Phone Did That, I Took It Into Metro And They Sent It In A Replaced It With A New One, The Guy At Th e counter Said That This Is A Common Thing And That Sometimes If You Download Anything From Your Phone Like From Funformobile.com Or Something, Or If Someone Sends Them To You From Websites Like That It Voids Your Waranty And It Causes That. I Hoped This Helped You, So Just Take It Into Metro And They Should Send You A New Phone Within 4-5 Buisness Days.
