  • Why is my iPhone 5 number listed as 'unknown' and not listed in iMessage and FaceTime?

    I am a customer of StraightTalk. Originally, I had an iPhone CDMA 5 purchased directly from this company. After three years, the battery swelled and I came out of the Apple Store on Thursday with a replacement. After inserting a SIM to speak directly into the device and setting up, I can make calls, send text messages, use the cell data, etc.

    However, my phone number in the settings is listed as 'unknown', and it is not listed at the top of the contacts screen. I can't send messages in my phone number iMessage, because it is not even listed as an option. Ditto for FaceTime. After several hours on the phone with Straight Talk, they determined that my phone service is configured properly, and it is a phone number.

    Does anyone have a solution for this? It is incredibly frustrating that the iPhone 5 does every thing I need to do, and I prefer to keep my phone from replacement $ 75 for three years before moving on to an iPhone SE.

    Hello, smirza!

    Thank you for using communities of support from Apple!  What I understand in your post, you got a replacement iPhone 5 and have found that your phone number is not listed in settings > phone and iMessages/FaceTime.  Your number should certainly be in all those places, so I'm happy that you came here, then we can help you understand what is happening together.  Check with your mobile provider was a big first step.  I have other ideas for you as well:

    1. It seems that you already have the latest version of iOS (9.3.4), but we will also check your carrier settings are up to date: iOS: update your carrier settings
    2. If you haven't already done so, save your iPhone on iCloud or iTunes: How to backup your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
    3. On your iPhone, go to settings > Contacts > My Info and make sure that your personal contact (with your iPhone phone number) card is selected.
    4. Go to settings > phone > my number and see if you are able to manually, enter your number and save it.
    5. If none of these steps work, try to restore your phone from the backup that you made: restore your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch from a backup
    6. If you still don't see your issue, try restoring your phone as a new and see if your number is: use iTunes on your Mac or PC to restore the iPhone, iPad or iPod to factory settings

  • Is it possible to block calls "Unknown Caller"?

    Is it possible to block calls "Unknown Caller"?

    I know how to block calls from numbers that are unrecognized, but when no phone number is detected, it doesn't seem to be a way to block these calls. (When you click on the "I" (information) in the histoet call, no option "call block" does exist.

    It is not possible on the phone, but contact your wireless carrier. Some offer this choice to their end, until the calls are even connected to your phone.

  • Blocking of the appellant 'unknown '.

    I get at least three calls a day from the appellants 'unknown '.  I don't touch my phone when these calls come, because I suspect there is some malware attached when the call is answered or if I responded in kind.  I just let it ring until the call is abandoned.  These calls come with no number, so there is nothing to block in the current Apple 6 implemented.

    Y at - it an app that can track these until Apple developed the code that will allow users to block calls?

    There is no way to attach any malware to a phone call, but it is probably marketing or crook calls.

    Check with the carrier service provider. Some offer a way to block unknown callears before it happens even on your phone.

  • Unknown data usage "background."

    So, I have firefox OS B2G OS 2.2 and the battery is not lasting half a day. Began to seek what could be draining the battery I decided to uninstall all applications that I could, calendar and emails synchronizes the manual value and closed all remaining applications (except for owapp and telegram because I don't want to go through the new registration process). Then I reset monitor the use of data and after an hour, using the phone to all of this, that's what I have:

    Other: 10,56 MB
    OWapp: 4.12 KB

    So, openwapp it is supposed to check for new messages every 10 minutes so I guess it's normal, but where are all these other 10 MB of "other apps" coming from when I use not even my phone.
    Maybe it's because my battery is running low so fast?

    I don't think it's a battery problem because if I disable the use of data, then the battery lasts for much longer than a day!

    my best, jose.

    I post this info for someone how can run into this thing and also for this mark as resolved.
    Finally I uninstalled the telegram (which I barely used) and suddenly disappeared from unknown data consumption and now my battery is hard a day and a half with all services running (e-mail, openwapp, calendar, messages, ets). But I must say that I don't use my phone much.
    I will report that the developers of telegram.

    Thanks, jose.
