Cellular Phones/call detail question


I have service with metro pcs and on my call detail sometimes it doesn't display a number it only says incoming call or outgoing call. What does this mean, who's calling me?

Unfortunately MetroPCS is not the best provider when it comes to detail. A lot of providers only provide the detail on outgoing calls but if you see periodic "incoming" or "outgoing"  it basically means that they weren't able to capture the number on the call. Not a great thing for a carrier and not sure why it would be this way. Doesn't make a lot of sense.
