What does announcement 1480 mean?
AGUZADA

I am calling someone.  A verizon announcement says that the person is not available and to call later.  Then it gives "1480" and a location number.

Generally that helps identify the server/router/tower/switch that could not complete the call and the code for possibly why.

Thank you for considering my elementary question.  I learned today that the person (a child of mine ... ) had not purchased another monthly prepaid card.

We want you to be able to get a hold of that person Aguzada. How long have you had this issue for? Are you having issues with any other number? What is the make/model of your device?

Sorry to get you all involved. I did email the first person who answered.  I cannot see how to respond on the website.  Anyway, it was the person I was calling (a child, wouldn't you know) whose monthly prepaid account was over.  He had to buy a new card.  Thanks All.

AGUZADA, since you initiated this thread are you able to mark it ANSWERED?  Maybe a moderator can LOCK it since it IS ANSWERED.

This is happening to me today. Also, none of my texts are getting to him. Other people can call him, just not me.

 I started having this problem after picking up a call from a specific number. Smart ID tagged it with caller's name. Whenever I make a call now, I get that message, or it goes straight to the person's voicemail. I can still receive calls and texts though, and can call out using an app, but regular phone is busted.
