    Question All incoming calls show as private numbers

    Hi all, I hope this is the right place to post.

    I have a problem which is really frustrating, all my incoming calls are shown as private numbers.
    Including calls from family and friends who does not set their outgoing calls to be private.

    I have a galaxy tab 2 7". Any help or insight would be appreciated.

    I don't know much about Samsung Tabs, but this is not a phone, is it?

    With that being said, what app are you using for phone calls?

    Its not a phone per say, but this one,(and the galaxy note tab) you can make calls and send sms's from. So you can use it as a phone.

    I'm using the default app, same one as galaxy s3.

    Interesting, I am at a loss for this one. Do you have a cellular plan with a carrier or can you only do it over WiFi?

    Haha yea. It's on a cellular plan yes. Now that you brought that up, i have a data contract since I don't want to use it as a phone. It would not be my network just not sending caller ids to my device because its on the data contract? It would be weird.

    Well, if you have data only, there is no cellular call. I don't know how the phone app would work unless you are using something like Skype or Google Voice. But I am guessing because you do not have a phone plan, that is why. No phone plan means no phone services, like caller ID. I am guessing at this point.

    Me to, i'll give them a call and hear what they have to say. Thanx

    Edit: I gave them a call and it was carrier related, they have not activated caller id for me. Also you mentioned that it must be google voice or skype, but I'm pretty sure its not. I can make and receive calls without using data. So it should be cellular.
