    I realize this is probably not iPhone related, but I wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing this.

    I've had two calls this past week that show up as "device" even though I don't have anything saved in my address book under that number or name.

    Here's a link to the screenshot, it's not even a full number which is what confuses me.

    looks a spam text message number. I would call my carrier and have the number blocked.

    I had that happen once a long time ago. I just assumed it was some telemarketing auto-dialer or something and didn't pick it up.

    Yeah, i did that however it was one of those calls where they were like, "if you'd like to stop receiving calls or be removed from our list, please press 3 and you'll be removed immediately" :rolleyes:

    Damn telemarketing trolls

    I try not to respond to those in any way. I figure they're trolling for an authentic number and once you respond... they got one.

    Thanks guys, I guess the part that was confusing was that it displayed as the name as 'device' when they called, even though that number isn't in my phonebook.
