Default how does *69 work??

in the past few weeks i've been getting some mysterious phone calls. basically, the phone rings, i say hello, but there is dead silence on the other end. no static, not even background noise. been happening off and on for a few weeks now...

oh and i dont have caller id or anything. just basic service.
so tonight the same thing happens. i have no idea who the person is, or who knows, maybe it is a dropped call? but anyway, i decided to try to do *69 to see who it is, and when i did i got 'the number is unknown' automated message.

anyone know what that means? would that be like an unlisted number? or possibly a cell phone? this is all through bellsouth btw.

i think each *69 request nets you a charge too.

telemarkerters use automated dialers, pain in the butt, they will eventually reach you though.

That could be any number of things. If it's an ongoing problem, call your phone provider and tell them you're having a lot of dropped calls, and dead calls that don't show up on CID or *69. They can check their equipment and see if it's malfunctioning in the area. For a while I had the same thing, turns out their system was ringing my number without anyone being on the other end, a call to Vzn fixed it right up.

that might be it, except that during the times it happened, it happened at night. and maybe once a week or so. and around the same time. also, if someone tried to call (legit) and it got dropped...i would think the person would call back...
