The display "00" is not an error on the smartphone. Usually it can be assumed that you will not miss anything important if you reject the call or have not heard it. Instead, the caller uses the "clip - no screening" function. Under certain conditions, this function can be used to transmit a desired number to telephone providers.
As a rule, advertisers or call centers, for example, want to hide their phone number in this way so that they are not called back afterwards. Elsewhere, we show you how to block or reject calls from certain numbers, such as 00, so as not to be disturbed.
Who is behind the phone number 00?
In the recent past, many smartphone owners have also received calls from numbers that begin with a "00". If a number begins with two zeros, a call from abroad can be concluded. Fraudsters often use such numbers for so-called "ping calls". There is only a short ring, so that the smartphone owner is tempted to call back. However, there may be high costs when calling back. Such numbers can look like this, for example:
- 0038: Call from Bosnia? Attention!
- Area code 0088: Beware of the recall mesh
Elsewhere we will show you how to search backwards on cell phone numbers.
