It doesn't tell you in the detailed breakdown of your ebill?

Do you need a specific city or something that the country code isn't good enough for? Keep in mind many countries don't do area codes and instead it's carrier codes or just the whole country.

The person calling me has cell with local area code.
They were calling me in Ontario from Dubai or so they say.

I searched on my airtime it shows both #'s but not their location only mine.

Searching the UAE telephone numbering system, only land lines have area codes, which really are more accurately emirate codes within the UAE. Mobile numbers are broken down by carrier.

If they are using an Ontario number then that is the phone number that it will show.  It will not show the location of where the call originated from

You could try using a reverse lookup service. Call display, etc. does not always transfer, even to the USA!

then it's maybe a VoIP number that gives the person an Ontario cell number

I thank you all for your help, I ended up finding it on a site that tracks cell calls .
