Today in the highly dynamic world that is filled with tons and tons of communication means, a phone number has almost become our identity and you can use it for logins, backing up your data, and to stay connected with your family, friends, and colleagues.
Now, we all know that every phone number has several parts depending on their country, city, type of phone that is, and even the carrier. So, you might be wondering if you have received a call from any number that has all zeros as that might be something that you have seen. If you are confused, here are a few things that you need to know about it.
Phone Number All Zeros
Is it Possible?
Well, technically it is not possible for you to have a phone number with all zeros. There are laws, codes, and lots of other stuff involved with that. A phone number must contain a country code, an area code, a carrier code, and then the number. Mostly, you might get lucky to get your hand on some phone number that has all the zeros after these codes but even that number is going to cost you tons. The scarcity of such numbers makes them unique and that is why you cannot easily get your hands on one.
Although, if you have received a call from some number, that has no code either only zeros on it, that could mean several things such as:
Blocked Caller ID
There are different applications and services available from different carriers out there that can help you to suppress your Caller ID while calling someone. It usually shows “Private number”, “No Caller ID”, or all zeros on the number whenever a person that has blocked their caller ID using any mean would call you.
Now, there is no certainty if they have blocked their number through the carrier, some third-party application, or if they are using any specific carrier so you cannot possibly track any such calls.
Now, this type of communication also possesses some security risks as well because you cannot possibly know who are you dealing with. If you are expecting a call from such a private number, or you know someone who calls you from any such number then you can take the call. Otherwise, it is not recommended to take any such calls that don’t have their identity to show.
It is a common thing, as someone who is not comfortable to reveal his identity on a call, must have something to hide and you need to be aware of that. Another thing that you need to keep in mind is that any support center such as your bank, credit card company or your service provider will never be calling you from such numbers. Also, they don’t ask for any sensitive or personal information over the call, so you need to make sure that you don’t have to share any information that can cause you to be a victim of any scam such as your personal or financial information over such calls.
