What he's saying is that when you call Nigeria from the UK, instead of the UK number you called with appearing on the recipient's phone, a Nigerian local number will appear. This has happened to me a many times too and people will be asking, "when did you come back?"

The reason that is happening though is because the FG through the NCC increased tariff for international inbound calls by more than 500%. This made the foreign network providers to now route their call through local Nigerian numbers so they are charged as local calls.

How many people uses virgin to call nigeria ? May be they are not bordered cos they have less traffic towards nigeria.

This guy is probably an 18 year old kid

Why would i want my phone number to show when i call Nigeria or some other countries ??

That's why i don't have a phone number or SIM card in my phone, i just download a textme app on my phone and get a free phone number

This is 2017 and not 1965, no one trips for foreign phone numbers anymore

We complain too much in this country.
U just want people to know you are abroad when it shows +447*******
Moreover it doesn't happen with Lycamobile (especially when u use the Nigerian Plan that gives u 250 mins call time to Nigeria) or EE

so the only issue here is your number changes to a local number here right?
my question is, what happens when someone in nigeria is making international calls?

this isnt a big deal tho

the big problem i see is when family keep seeing different numbers every time you call from abroad, is this an issue ?
