Question

I'm trying to call a Philippines number but I keep getting weird pre-recorded messages


I have the 3$ option for long distance calling.

I’m calling a government number called PAG-IBIG and this is the full number I’m dialing.

011-63-2-87244244

The 63 is the country code.

The 2 is the area code

The 87244244 is the number I’m trying to call. 

The call gets through but I get these weird pre-recorded messages. They’re conversations of people similar to the IELTS Listening module (if anyone is familiar). Basically, a conversation plays I’ve heard 2 versions so far. A business meeting via phone call and another a merchant to consumer conversation.

Is this normal? I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

If the calls went through and you hear the messages then the problem was probably from the Philippines number. Did you contact the number before?

Hi. Yes, I’ve called the number before. So, I was surprised at this change.

I’ll try to monitor this.
