    Hi all,

    I recently got an HTC Desire HD and today came across a peculiar problem. I am no longer able to call a specific number. Whenever I try, the regular call-out screen is displayed and the phone remains silent for a little bit, then I hear a beeping noise along with the noise the phone makes when you lock / unlock the phone.

    This is really strange because I phoned this number last night and was connected. I can phone other numbers and I can phone other numbers associated to that contact.

    I've seen a few similar threads but no real solution. Anyone know what I could do to fix it?

    Thanks

    Specs:
    HTC Desire HD
    Android v2.3.3
    HTC Sense v2.1

    Have you tried deleting the number from the phonebook, then re adding?

    Yeah. Tried it with no luck.

    Interestingly enough, I tried inserting a different sim and had no issues with dialling the number. Once I put back in my sim, the same problem. I can call any phone in the world I want to, except for that one.

    Could this really be a network issue?

    Not sure, if works with another SIM, it could be? Is the number from another country or the one you're calling from?

    Can you send a text to it (presuming it's a mobile)?

    I'd an issue with certain numbers as a result of an earlier version of the facebook app. It stored the country code separately so whenever I tried to dial/text a contact that had a facebook account linked to it it would omit the country code so the number dialed was 7985 258554 as opposed to 07985 258554 or +447985 258554.

    That's a fake number by the way, just using it as an example ;)

    Have somebody fixed this? I really need an answer. This has been happening to me for like two month, but before that I could easily call that number and I can still text the number.

    I have the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy S4. I cannot dial to my home phone number.
