    I’ve had iPhone X for 2 days. Whenever I make an international call, they (recipient) get a totally different local number instead of my number. So effectively they don’t know who’s calling them. I’ve tested with multiple people and they all say the same

    But for local calls it shows my real number. So no one is complaining in North America. Not sure whether it’s related to my new phone. I’m planning to try and he same using my android phone.

    Anyone experience this before?

    This sounds like a carrier problem unless you are using FaceTime / Audio

    I agree with Vermifuge. Sounds like carrier issue.

    Same issue here. This is not iPhone related but more carrier related. Each carrier has rules. For instance, if I call back home, the number that always pops out is 3999-9999 (or any 9xxx variation).

    That's the same number for anyone that calls into that carrier.

    But when they do pick up your call, can you connect/talk to them successfully?


    Sounds like a carrier problem, the way it routes numbers from one country to another.
