Can anyone tell me if this number is actually a real phone number from somewhere:

1 203 011 300

I've gotten 2 calls from this number on my Cingular cell phone.

Thanks,
TekWiz

Impossible since no real phone number starts with 011. Also you have
1 + 9 digits which is impossible in the NANP (North American Numbering
Plan.) All numbers in the NANP are 3+3+4 (area code/prefix-number)

Looks like you left off a digit. Area code = three digits, exchange =
three digits, location = four digits.

A great site for at least locating the city/state and carrier is:

It's missing a digit - at least.

I will agree that the number listed is impossible according to NANP.
However, it is possible for numbers not comforming to the numbering plan to
flash on the screen when receiving a call. Just last week I received a
return phone call from a customer service help center (not Cingular) and the
displayed was 6583 21.

It's possible that the call could be from a PBX-based system or other. But
as it is, it's impossible to tell where the phone call originated or even
what the actual phone number is.

Just a thought.

Unless it's an IP address, then it's right on. Maybe it's an internal
VOIP number?

No. IP's only go as high as 255 in each octet.

If so, who? (1 is a class A, and probably much wished for.)

>Maybe it's an internal VOIP number?

Internal IP domains are 10 or 192, unless someone doesn't mind
creating a problem for himself.

Actually:

10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255

Oops. I missed that one.

I have received calls from my sister in Germany - now I don't remember if the
Id started with 011 or not, but it tried to display in the NANP format, not
the formatting my sister gave me for the number. But it did display all 12
digits of the number, and possibly the leading 011. So maybe the call
originated overseas.

The display is a function of your phone, intended to make the number easier to

O11 is the international access code here in the USA. It does not show up in
any caller ID. If in Germany to make an international call you dial 00 followed
by the country code <etc>. The 00 doesn't show up on CID.
