    how do I find out who's number it is?

    someone rang my mobile off a 0871 number and when I called it back it asked me to enter an international id? so I hung up quick! I googled the number but only 2 results came up, both were forums discussing the same number doing the same... ringing and cutting off. is there anyway I can find out what it is?

    no not on there, thanks anyway

    It could very well be a scam in itself - collecting money for having people call back out of curiousity. Stay well clear!

    Have you triedhttp://whocallsme.com/



    yeah that was what came up when i googled it, there was a discussion about the number on there

    It's more likely to be a scam. I kept getting a 070 mobile number calling my work phone and it would only ring the once not giving you a chance to answer it, so the 'normal' thing is to ring back to see who've you've missed. Then when you get the phone bill....! I had to alert all the users at work not to call back any mobile numbers that were prefixed 070 unless they knew who it was because the company was being charged at a premium rate.

    All I can suggest is try to suppress the curiosity of wanting to know who called (hard I know) and just rely on the fact that if it was urgent or they need to reach you, they'll try again.
