The next step after getting such a call is to dial *69 in order to call back a restricted number on a landline or cell phone. This only functions when there haven’t been any calls made or received since the restricted contact.
A restricted number, sometimes known as a private number, is one that the caller has purposefully chosen to block for a variety of different reasons. This stops the caller’s phone number from showing up on caller ID, and neither missed call logs nor voicemail messages contain this information.
Such communications make it difficult to get in touch with the caller again unless alternative methods of contact are available or the recipient is aware of the person’s contact information.
It is feasible to contact the restricted number back when neither of these circumstances apply, provided that nothing else has been done on the phone since the restricted call was received.
This implies that no incoming calls are recorded since the restricted number, no outgoing calls are made, and no voicemails are recovered. The previous line that made a connection with the particular cell phone or land line can be reached by simply dialling *69.
The majority of the time, this is effective, but there may be fees associated with using it, depending on the service provider and other carrier constraints.
