also, with Sprint an unknown call comes through when someone hits 8 when listening to your voicemail to call you back. It comest through as a "private" numer.

If you're listening to a voicemail on Sprint, hitting 8 will call the number that the person who left you the message dialed from. That call will look like an unknown caller to the person receiving the call.

You hit ## to return to voicemail after you have completed the call.

Actually, yes. I've received them and they show in my call log as 'unknown'. I click to call them and the number is displayed. I just hang up after I see the number and do a reverse lookup on the number to see if I REALLY want to call them back.

Agreed. Its one the features pd my pearl that I love! My previous phones wouldn't even allow me to call back unknowns, much less the ability to see the "unknown" number!
