Huh?

Try throwing a period in, at the end of your sentences, and maybe
your post would be a bit more coherent!

well, what's your cell phone's area code? 702, or 775? :)

1. Call from your home phone (assuming it's in CA)
2. Call the firm's non toll free number.
3. Move

How is Sprint PCS "giving your number as a nevada phone number" if you have a
California area code?

I don't quite get it. Usually, phone systems that personalize menus and
services by phone number read your Caller ID or ANI info. Both would pass
530-xxx-xxxx as your phone number. Nevada's only area codes are 702 and 775; if
your cell phone number is in one of those area codes, it's a Nevada number. If
your cell phone number is in AC 530, it's a California number.

You're saying your cell phone number is in 530, right?

Area code 530 is in northern California. I don't see how that
could be construed as a Nevada number.

I don't quite get it, either, but now that I read back through the
thread I see that this is very similar to what happened on my account
awhile back, too. I was living in Missouri and had an 816 number, but
when I called any of my credit card companies, mortgage company, etc.,
I always had to answer more than a few questions in order to establish
my identity, and when I called from home the number of questions was
much lower, usually just one. So I started asking my CC CSR's to add
my PCS number to my CC account to help them recognize me, and that's
when it became obvious that the number that came up on their screens
was NOT my number. The only part that matched in my case was the 816
Area Code. Dialing the number that showed up gave a "This number is
not in service" message. I tried several times to report it to SPCS
and get it corrected, but was never successful. About 10-11 months
later, I moved out of Missouri and haven't had the problem since
setting up my account at the new place.

My theory is that the wrong CSA code was entered during account setup,
but I was not able to confirm it. BTW, SPCS has an ANI number you can
use to see what the system thinks your number is, but I'm not sure
it's public knowledge so I'll let someone else provide it.

Then they're not only idiots, but lazy. It's not hard to look up which state an
area code is in. You could probably even do it via google.

702 and 775 are the only area codes in Nevada. 702 is Greater Las Vegas. 775 is
everywhere else in the state.

"people" obviously don't understand the North American Dialing lan as
written. Area Codes are assigned by geographic area and do no over lap state
boundries. Looking up the 530 area code it is a California Area Code.

Why is this a discussion anyway?

Ask them to read back the number as displayed on their caller ID.
Are they seeing 530-XXX-XXXX?

Is it possible that Sprint's hardware is sending out the wrong ANI for him,
eventhough the caller ID string is correct?

Yes, but it's rare, which is why the folks participating in this

I don't think he's saying that people don't know where certain area
codes are from. He's saying that people are reading "his" area code
back to him, and it's not correct. The "lazy" and "idiot" tags might
not be fair.

Yeah, that's why I asked him to get these called people to read back
to him exactly what they're seeing. So far he hasn't revealed the exact
(supposedly Nevada) area code.

This does sound like a problem with Sprint's ANI system. ANI is
used to deliver the caller's phone number to toll-free destinations.
