    This number 786-428-0358 calls me every morning at 9:46 AM and waking me up. Ive tryed looking it up ion the intrnet and I get this mesage:

    We did not find a listing for the phone number you entered.
    The phone number "(786) 428-0358" is a North Dade, FL based phone number and the registered carrier is Florida Digital Network. Additional information for this number is not available. Please read our Search Tips below for more information

    does anyone know what the hell this number is? WHen I try to call back its always busy. Whoever this is is really starting to piss me off. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    99.9% chance it's some kinda telemarketer. Answer it next time and ask them to stop callin. I've had to do that myself a time or two. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    whenever I pick up the call ends. They either hang up or something. but 786-428-0358 = 0. Could that mean anything?

    Put up some free classified ads on the internet for something, with that number as the contact...

    uh, actually, that might be illegal. Or, you'll find out later it's an old high school buddy or something having a problem with his phone...

    What are you doing in bed at 9:46 (11:46 fla time I think) anyway?

    Re: Phone in south Florida keeps calling and waking me up

    I am tired of telemarketers, and my guess it's one, because they are beyond annoying.
    Also on my hate list is....

    New Century Air (I already have a/c thanks)

    Bee Line Glass (I have windows thanks)

    UPromise (I signed up, and now they call me and I hate it!)

    Pacesetter Corp (least once a week these crooks call me)

    The free dish tv people

    The time share people

    The idiot who called me at 5:15am because he didn't realize CA was 3 hours behind trying to sell me a warrenty for my car.

    All them can go chew a grenade. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Re: Phone in south Florida keeps calling and waking me up

    im sick of tellemaketers also, lately ive been picking up the phone and count to 5 (you always get the pause after you pickup the phone till the other guy picks up the phone) and hang up. the Grand Rapids Press has been calling me for 1.5 weeks at 5:28pm every day. finely they gave up

    then if you don't get to the phone quick enough, they put you on hold. your not gonna call me and put me on hold, click /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Re: Phone in south Florida keeps calling and waking me up

    I know how you feel. the a**holes (telemarketers) called me on a regular basis. I got smart with them though, for the last few years when they call, I ask them for their home phone numbers. they quickly ask why and I proceed to tell them that I'll call them at 2 am and that when they call me at 9am EST, it's like their 2 am. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I can't stand them, ask them to take your name off the call list and they act like you slapped em in the face and get an attitude.

    sorry for the hijack.

    Well I JUST got another call. The guy sounded foreign he couldnt even pernounce my last name which is Nolte. He had my address and said my Mastercard had be approved. Then he asked for my birthdate and I told him I wasnt interested. He just hung up. No thankyou nothing just dial tone. The thing that gets me is I havent applied for a mastercard and the number said restricted. I am sure this is the same people that have been calling me for the last few days. What should I do?

    Nothing, they are fishing for for info. You told them no, I doubt they'll call back. You could contact the police about them fishing, but like they probably don't have 100's of other cases just like this so they probably can't do a thing.

    We used to be on every telelmarketing list on the planet. I signed up for the Do Not Call list the first day it was available. Now the phone hardly ever rings. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
