    Today my call log seems to be registering a call from a private number that doesnt ring the phone

    I access my call log to ring numbers etc instead of going through contacts or speed dialing
    This morning i noticed a private number had rung me (apparantly) 4 times

    Yet I recieved no phone calls at the times stated.
    I use extreme call blocker yet the calls never rigistered there ???? yet were in the call log
    And stranger still is this symbol in the call log which is cannot find anywhere

    The symbol is a red circle with a diagonal line similar to a no smoking symbol and in the middle of the red circle is a blue capital A

    Anyone know what this symbol means aor why\how these phone calls are appearing in my call log.

    My phone is a LG smart wine and my carrier is the uk based giffgaff.

    Sounds like something to do with your carrier. I'll try to find some of your fellow countrymen. @LV426 @psionandy Maybe they know something that I don't.

    Could you screen shot the symbol and post it so we can see what it is exactly?

    I have 2 inclinations in response to the description of that symbol

    Does your phone ever lose signal or drop all "bars"? If you lost signal it might not let your phone ring. A carrier could theoretically tell the phone after it reconnects to the network that it missed a call that was blocked by a loss of signal?

    Do you ever use 'Do Not Disturb' mode? Or do you set up meetings, calendar notifications, or Alarms, that might limit your phone from ringing? Maybe if Calendar shows an appointment it is stopping your phone from ringing a blocking the call?
    Airplane Mode?

    That number is on your Auto-reject list. Have you blocked any numbers?
