You should have answered it. They were probably going to tell you the specs for the next iPhone.

Sometimes when people use Skype to call out (meaning call 'regular' phones, including cell phones, not Skype to Skype call) the number shows up like that. Does anyone who might call you use Skype?

I get it when the call is blocked but not blocked fully. It's masked and so far it has been nothing but my car warranty expired on a car which I have never owned.

That was a call from Alexander G. Bell. The first phone number.

Most likely Jack Bauer calling to let you know that this season is going to have the same outline as last season.

It was a masked number. Some VoIP service like Skype do this when you call out to normal numbers you only pay to call out and not to receive calls.

That or it was the Party Van

no it wasn't a call.

it was social security informing you of the status of your retirement and 401k accounts.

btw: i usually get only "blocked".

Oh my goodness.
This exact same thing is happening to me. It is the most annoying thing ever.
They've called me 6 times, and leave a voicemail every time, saying that this is my "last chance".
Then they call again.
Ah well.
But yeah, it's a masked number, nothing to worry about.
Or perhaps it was a prank from one of your friends, with one of those Spoof Caller ID apps on Cydia.

I've seen 000... from skype, from an incoming international call, and from my work. They block their number, but for some reason it doesn't say blocked.

I got an all zero call last week when Wells Fargo called me to remind me that I had an interview on Friday. I still have the voicemail.
