Greetings fellow 2D customers. I received a message yesterday saying that I missed a call from +00 The number the message was from is displayed as 0000, rather than the usual 2degrees such as 200, 201, etc.

Has anyone else received these messages and if so do you have any ideas as to who they are from. I am thinking it could be an international number because of the +00. Usually when I miss a call it either shows the number, contact or simply says 'unknown number'. Never had one like this before.

Really appreciate any assistance. Thanks in advance.

International calls sometimes comes through as 0000

The text is likely replacing the first two zero's as a + (As in NZ, the IDD code is 00).

0000 is a standard CID in NZ for international numbers that don't have CID present.

Or its google giving you the code for 2 factor.

Many times I have been too slow turning blocking mode off on my phone so google gets rejected to voicemail and you cant just click something to make them call again on the same number which is annoying.
