Wrong number displayed when i call internationaly

Hi Everyone,

 

I have these issue for a while now and it seems like knowone can solve.

Lately (started 2-3 months ago) every time I call or text to a number in europe my number showing on the other end is NOT mine resulting on people not picking up the call. Instead of my number they see a number from another european country. I called Fido tech support....they blame the europeans.....my friends and family in europe called the local carriers....of course they blame Fido.

Anyone with the same issue or any suggestions on why this issue persist?

 

Thank you all in advance

Hey @efdd,

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

When making an international call, some countries charge extra for calls that originate outside the country. Some carriers route calls so that they appear to be local calls, so that the billing is at a lower rate. 

 

While I get the inconvenience of the situation, there is currently no known solution for this situation. I did do a quick online research to find out this is a known issue amongst different carriers, with no resolution in sight for the time being.

Thank you for the reply FidoLony. It makes sence, the problem is that everything was working normal until recently.

 

Thanks again
