The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service – Are You Blocked. If you try to reach a subscriber, but you receive “the number you have dialed is not in service” intercepting the message, there could be myriad factors causing it. Although the possibility that the subscriber you’re calling is on their blocklist is something to think about, there are other causes, and these are ones we’ll explore within this post.
Why is “the Number You Have Dialed Not in Service?”
- What triggers the “the number you have dialed is not in service” message to play in the event of an international phone call? If you receive a “the number you have dialed is not in service” intercept the message, one of the reasons is that the number you’re trying to call is not connected to the provider of your network or it’s not correct in that you missed some numbers or you’ve switched the numbers to themselves.
- Even if you did not misdial the number, the system might have misdialed you and resulted in this recording of the intercepted message. This can happen when you try to dial numbers within an area code during a specific time of day, mainly when pressure on phones is more. Repeatedly calling simultaneously could respond to this message. Still, we advise you to take your time and try contacting the number again so long as you’re confident you’ve got the correct number.
- However, if you call the wrong number, you should not forget that although you might receive the valid number or, in some instances, the phone lines work well, the person who called you may have provided you with the incorrect number. Therefore, if it’s a romantic person or business acquaintance who doesn’t want to call them, receiving the call-intercept message after a while will indicate that you may have received the wrong number.
- If . shut off the phone service of a person, the most commonly cited reason being that the individual didn’t pay their phone bills, and you’ll receive a “the number you have dialed is not in service” call intercept error message when trying to call them.
- We’ve had calls intercept messages when trying to dial a number that was recently issued and isn’t yet in the tables of routing. The most likely explanation is called Number portability. It means that the number isn’t part of the carrier anymore and isn’t a part of an additional carrier. This could go on for a while but typically, waiting anywhere from just a few minutes and several hours to contact the number is enough to solve the issue.
- There are instances when you call the number listed on your Caller ID by a person you do not have any contact with. If this happens, you should consider that the number may be fake. If you attempt to call the number, you’ll get a “the number you have dialed is not in service” call intercept message since it’s a fake. You should also be aware that some hospitals and businesses have a policy that makes it impossible to reach them, and you should examine this before making any conclusions.
- In most cases, it is the case that you receive that “the number you have dialed is not in service” message, regardless of the cause – whether or not the number was incorrectly dialed or the user hasn’t paid their phone bill, or the company that provided them with the phone has removed their number, or the customer has lost their phone an indicator that the person is not technically out of service, in other words, the situation will not cause you to be permanently in a position to contact the person as if you have the correct phone number. So you should try retrying the number later and then see if the call succeeds.
Fix 1: Report the Spam Number
If you receive this “the subscriber you have dialed is not in service” call intercept message while trying to dial the number left on your caller ID, the chances are you’ve either been scam called or contacted by an ad-hoc telephone caller. If you’re calling to opt out, and the call does not succeed, you can report the number to your service provider and ask them to block it since it violates government regulations not being allowed to opt out of unwanted calls.
Fix 2: Confirm That It Isn’t Called Forwarding.
It is possible to look at your phone’s screen as you dial to see whether it displays “call forwarding.” If that’s the case, before receiving a “the subscriber you have dialed is not in service” call intercept message, then the odds are that the user is having their calls redirected to an incorrect number, and sending a text could help them reach them.
Fix 3: Retry-After Some Time
This is when you call the number you are sure is correct, and sure it’s not out of service. Because the “the subscriber you have dialed is not in service” message you receive from a call intercept is often caused by overloading phone lines, and waiting between several minutes and several hours to try an address should be enough to resolve the issue for you. This is also the case if the customer that you are trying to port their number to another provider.
Fix 4: Confirm That the Number Is Correct
It is generally recommended to ensure that the number you’ve entered is correct. If one or more digits are not there or switched, you’ll receive a “the subscriber you have dialed is not in service” message from the call intercept. It is also possible to try calling the number using a different phone to determine if the message is played.
If none of these methods work, it is best to contact the subscriber in another way and inform them that you’ve tried to convey your message to them. They’re sure to be able to explain and call their provider to fix the issue if they feel there’s any need to do so.
