Calls from 'Private No."

We get calls on Turkcell mobile from 'Private No', don't answer them as we only use it to take calls from people we know. Does anyone know what a private number on the Turkish network refers too?

We also get calls from International nos, (not UK), and don't answer those either, since adopting this policy credit doesn't disappear like it used too.

But what are 'private nos'?

Re: Calls from 'Private No."

We always use a no number no answer policy. If someone wants their number to be a secret then why have a phone and why even use it....

Re: Calls from 'Private No."

Sometimes people calling from Skype/VOIP services can show up as a "No number," but usually those blocked numbers are advertising calls. The mobile operators and service companies such as TurkTelekom have no respect when it comes to giving out your number to advertisers, and do an incessant amount of their own telemarketing as well.

Re: Calls from 'Private No."

I assign a silent ring tone to Turkcell and any other persistent offenders so that I don't hear them calling.

Re: Calls from 'Private No."

Mine always shows up as private number when I phone anyone despite taking off the 'no number sending' on my phone, unless they have my number stored in their phone, in which case my name shows up.

Re: Calls from 'Private No."

Thanks for the replies. As you suggest 'private no' is what we usually call 'number withheld' .
Mystery solved on this one as it was friend calling, but she had to borrow someone else's phone, who had 'number withheld'.
It's a good policy to only answer known numbers though, credit does seem get used when answering some numbers, though don't know how that works.
