The full number changes with almost every call and I'm thinking this is becasue it goes through Embarq before the call gets to me. It is always an 866-649-**** number. So only the last 4 numbers change.

I hope this helps!

Goopkat is right. The main number that should show up on the ID is 866-649-7319. The last 4 digits might change depending on the number of calls going out but the 866-649-XXXX will be your friend or family in a TDCJ unit no matter where they are in the state.

Default finally got a call yah!

That's for letting me know what will show up on the caller id as soon as i saw 866-649 I knew it was him, because of your statements.
The call went by so quick though, even though it was 15 minutes it felt more like 5.

Unhappy Question about caller ID

Can anyone tell me what shows up on your caller id when you receive a call from Garza West? If I don't know the number I don't answer it but i don't want to miss a call.

Unhappy i missed my first call! :(

i got a call from 866-397-3641 (and other websites says it's embarq). *CRY* i wasn't home from work yet so i missed the call! was this the call telling me that my phone had been registered or was this a call i missed from him? Damn! how frustrating!

i don't get home from work until 730pm (cali time), 930 (texas time)! ugh! can they make calls on the weekends?

*i feel like crying!*

You can put unknown numbers into google and search to see what comes up. if its a bill collector there will be several posts with their experiences of people calling from this number.

I am not sure if it is everywhere that they can call on the weekends, but I did get a call from my husband on Father's Day(Sunday). I didn't think they could call on the weekends but he said that they were on and working.
