Several factors might result in the “The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” intercept message when you attempt to call a subscriber. While the chances that the subscriber you’re calling has you on their blocklist are ones to consider, there may be lesser-known explanations, and we will investigate them in this post.
The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service Causes
- What drives the call intercept message “The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” to play when trying to make a phone call? When you obtain the “The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” intercept message, one of the many possible explanations is that the number you are trying to call has been disconnected from the network provider or that it is wrong, such as you are missing one or more numbers or you have switched the digits for themselves.
- Even if you did not manually dial the number, there is a risk that the system did, resulting in the intercept message playing. This happens when calling numbers with an area code during particular times of the day, especially when the phone lines are under much strain. Even calling many times simultaneously may result in this call intercept message; however, we recommend that consumers give it some time and attempt redialing the number, as long as you have the correct number.
- Still, when it comes to calling the erroneous number, we should point out that while you may obtain the correct number and, in some cases, the phone lines are working, the recipient may have given you the incorrect number. So, whether you’re trying to reach a love interest or a business transaction who doesn’t want you to call them, receiving this call intercept message after some time points, you may have been given the wrong number.
- Suppose a person’s phone service has been disconnected, the most common explanation being that the individual has not paid their phone bills. In that case, you will receive the “The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” call intercept message while attempting to call them.
- We have received call intercept messages when attempting to call a newly issued number that still needs to be included in the routing tables. The fundamental reason for this is termed number portability, which means that a certain number has not been added to a carrier in the long run. It may continue for some time, but generally, waiting a few minutes to a few hours for a call back should resolve this issue.
- Sometimes, you call a number left on your Caller ID by someone you don’t know. If so, you should assume the phone number has been faked. Because the number is a forgery, calling it will result in the call intercept message “The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service.” You’d also like to know that certain firms and hospitals are in the business of making it impossible for you to reach them back, so you should look into this before making any decisions.
- The majority of the time, however, when you receive the “The Number You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” message, of the cause (whether the phone number was dialed, the customer has not renewed their phone bill, the telecom company has disconnected their phone number from the service, or the customer has lost their phone) is a sign that the customer is not technically out of service or that the lawsuit would be successful.
Report The Spam Number
Suppose you receive the “The Subscriber You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” call intercept message when attempting to call a number left on your caller ID. In that case, chances are you were either Robocalled, spamcalled, or called by a telemarketer. If you are calling back to opt out and the call does not go through, you may always report the number to your carrier to block the number since it is against government laws not to be able to opt out of their spam calls.
Confirm That It Isn’t Call Forwarding
As you dial, check the phone screen to see if “call forwarding” is shown. If this is the case before you obtain the “The Subscriber You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” call intercept message, chances are the subscriber’s calls are being routed to an incorrect number, and sending a text message can help you reach them.
Retry After Some Time
This will be the case if you call a phone number you know is correct and not out of service. Because the “The Subscriber You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” call intercept message is occasionally caused by overcrowded phone lines, waiting a few minutes to a few hours to retry a number should fix matters for you. This will likewise be the case if the subscriber is migrating their number to another carrier.
Confirm That The Number Is Correct
You should generally confirm that the number you have is correct. Well, if a number or two is missing or has been swapped, the call intercept message “The Subscriber You Have Dialed Is Not In Service” will appear. You might also call the number from another phone and see whether the intercept message plays.
If none of these methods work, contacting the subscriber via another channel and letting them know you’ve been trying to reach them are generally preferable. They would have an explanation and would be able to reach their carrier to get the issue fixed if necessary.
