    Hi All, I hope every one is doing well. My galaxy s7 is doing something I can not figure how to rectify. I have called my wireless provider for a new sim, but it is still happening. Whenever I receive a call, my phone identifies the number as being from China. I get this format when my phone rings, +86 5xxxxxxx instead of +865 xxxxxxx. This does not happen with contact calls. Anyone have an idea? Thanks

    865 is both an area code in Tennessee and a country code in China. (Someone has to start talking to someone to straighten that out.)

    The space between the 6 and the 5 is an artifact your phone adds - area codes and country codes are sent as numeric strings - no spaces. (It's possible that your carrier mayreplace the phone as being defective - you can try.)
