If the 999-999-9999 listed calls are all recent (within 24-48 hours) it may just be that the actual number has not resolved - and it will show up later.  It may also be where the call recipient has blocked their caller ID from showing, so the number is not viewable.  Just guesses, but explanations I have heard for seeing this on call logs.

As far as the numbers on your wife's text log, those are shortcodes, and could be text notifications from an app or service she has signed up for.  32665 is FBOOK, Facebook notifications. 40404 is Twitter. 22383 may be a local store coupon program, or local radio station alerts.... what do the texts say that come in from that number?

I didn't run through all of this thread and it's a number of years old:

999-999-9999

You can do a quick google search of it as well, everyone has their guess as to the reason, though I don't know that anyone has ever been sure.

That is very weird whodat81. Let’s investigate this. When did this start? Does the phone even ring or you are just seeing this in your missed call log?

We have the 999 999 9999 listed on our bill from 2/14 for 41 minutes!  No call was taken or made for that amount of time that we can remember. Are we charged for this amount of usage?
