Signs of a phone number that should alert you when you call or answer

What do the numbers in an unfamiliar incoming number say?

Numerologists say... no, it has nothing to do with numerologists, but telephone numbers have their own technical "numerology".

First, let me remind you of the structure of the telephone number:

And now the signs:

- If the first digit starts with a different from +7 (seven), then the number 100% belongs to another state.

However, it so happened historically that Kazakhstan is also +7, but after +7 comes the number 7. That is, +77 is already Kazakhstan. Also +76 this also applies to Kazakhstan.

An incoming number is free, but an outgoing number for a code that differs from +77 or +76 can cost a lot of money (up to 300 rubles per minute).

- Operator code can be as well as long distance code. For example, I am in Novosibirsk and my area code is 383. That is, if they call me from a landline, then I see +7 (383) xxx-xx-xx.

A call to a number in which the area code differs from yours will be much more expensive and does not consume minutes of your tariff, but is charged separately.

It is also worth understanding that if you are in one city, and they call you from another, then most likely they are spammers or scammers.

- Code 800 is a toll-free number from all telephones in the Russian Federation. As a rule, this number belongs to organizations.

For Russia, the pool of numbers is as follows: 8 800 100 0000 - 8 800 799 9999, the rest of the numbers belong to Kazakhstan. A call from such a number can also belong to spammers or scammers.

- If you see missed calls from one number on the smartphone screen, then most likely this is not a spammer or dialer, but a real person who cannot get through to you.

If only the last digits change, then they call you from some organization from different phones.

- It is better not to receive calls from a short number. But it should be understood that some organizations have it.

For example, Sberbank has 900 or 0440. Also, the short number may belong to your telecom operator.

It is better not to make calls to a short number if you do not know the number - such an action can activate some kind of paid subscription.

- The number +7 (9xx) -xxx-xx-xx refers to the so-called “non-geographic” code.

Such numbers can belong to both a mobile operator and IP telephony. Geographic codes are +7 (3xx), +7 (4xx) and +7 (8xx).

The latter is also combined with toll free numbers (800), Kazakhstan and Abkhazia. +7 (840) - landline phones of Abkhazia, and +7 (940) - mobile phones. Calls to them can also be charged differently.

It should be understood that the incoming number can be absolutely anything - modern ip-telephony is designed in such a way that you may not find the ends.

It seems that they are discussing some kind of law that will regulate the whole thing, but so far, only at the level of rumors.

Well, you can dial a number from a mobile through the classic eight and it is not necessary to write +7, but there may be problems with messengers.

Also, accordingly, SMS messages to international numbers may be charged higher. And with short ones, you need to be even more careful - you can activate a paid service or a subscription by accidentally answering an SMS. It is better to delete any SMS from short numbers immediately in order to eliminate the risk of an accidental reply.
