any advice? thanks
I did the *57 and it told me to contact my service provider..... i don't know how to go about doing so
Unfortunately, there's really no way to find out more about a private caller. Preventing your number from being discovered when calling another party wouldn't offer much privacy if the number could be found out.
If you're receiving any harassing or otherwise unwanted calls though, then what *57 will do is flag that particular call within our database so that if the police or someone authorized by a court order needs to access these calls, they'll be able to see when they were placed as well as obtain as much information as we would have on them (possibly a name and number, as long as the number isn't spoofed or fake). *57 will not have any other effect than flagging the call in our database.
Hope this answers your question.
Not an answer to your question but may be of use. I disable the ability for private numbers to call at all.
You can use *77 to enable, and *87 to disable 'Anonymous Call Rejection'.
Anyone I want to hear from, does not block their number. Nice feature.
