What do these codes mean?

I have a number of calls to SNFC CNTRL ... What in the world is that?

 

also,  a number of my calls are feature M2MCNG ... I assume M2M is mobile to mobile, but what is CNG??

 

thanks

CNG is a remnant of the time AT&T Mobility was called Cingular.

SNFC CNTRL is likely San Francisco Central, at least on my bill they show up for some 415-area code numbers. And for some others it shows San Jose W, San Jose N, etc. so I think they're just trying to fit a longer string into a limited space.

Not sure what you're talking about. The M2MCNG designation marks all calls between numbers on AT&T network, both incoming and outgoing, it has nothing to do with you receiving calls from AT&T. I suppose to stop those you have to talk to AT&T support.
