Phone troubles last night

Technically, this morning.

This morning around 11, I kept getting woken up every few minutes by someone calling my cell phone. I'd answer, and all that was on the other end was silence or maybe a few beeps now and then. I thought it was a telemarketing place's autodialer, and finally got pissed enough where I was trying to report them to the police. The lady on the other end at the police asked if I'd blocked the number. I replied, honestly, "This is a Tracfone, I don't know if there's even a way to do that." But looked for one anyway. "Add to reject list" is what I found, so I did. Haven't been bothered since.

Also, I called the number trying to call me, to tell them to stop (at police-lady's suggestion), and got modem noise. I think it must have been a modem or a fax machine dialing the wrong number.

Stange: I have no idea why, but when I looked at the reject list, it was listing this number under "Brooke Erickson." No way to edit the name, either. But it wasn't Brooke's number; hell, it's not even a Portland number! So why it's doing that, I have no idea. I just hope that's the only number it's blocking.

reverse lookup says it's an "unpublished" (unlisted) number in Charlotte, NC. WhoCall divulges the further information that it's a landline, not a cell phone. the only way you're going to find out any more than that, beginning with whose phone number that is, would be to pay between $2 and $10 for a "report" from one of the many reverse-lookup sites.

i think it's a fax machine.
