All across America, people who have Sprint service on their iPhones and other mobile devices are receiving repeated calls from the number “865-6696” without any area code. Sprint message boards are full of thousands of complaints of people experiencing this issue, but no one seems to understand the true reason why these calls are being made.
When the call is answered, no one is there. Attempting to call the number back does not work. Spelled out on the phone keypad, the number “865-6696” spells out “UNKNOWN,” adding to the mystery of where these calls are originating or what their purpose might be.
Comments on message boards such as 800notes.com say things like this:
I receive 3 or 4 calls per day from this number… with no area code. just 865-6696. i’ve not answered it for fear of who might be on the other end. i’m not sure how to report this and get this number to stop calling me. VERY aggravating!
