Hello @Dave1980,


We can definitely provide you with some more information on this. If a phone number is showing as all zeros on your text message/phone call history, it is simply appearing this way as a placeholder for a blocked number that isn't available to our network. This can happen when companies have private phone numbers for example. The real phone number would have still shown up on your cell phone if these were outgoing phone calls that you made, so you may be able to match them up to some of the calls from your cell phone's call log history. Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
