People can't seem to call me, but I can call others.

My IPhone 5 recently started not being able to receive calls from anybody who called me, but I can call people.  When they do call me, the automated voice message isn't the usual Verizon women voice either.  It keeps saying, to everybody who tries calling me, "first dial the area code, then dial the number" and they would "dial the area code first" and still the same message.  I have one other person on the same plan and his IPhone 4 works fine and I checked the balance on the account and is $0.00 therefore our bill is payed for.  Does anybody know what it could be before I call support or go to the store?

try dialing *73 and press call.  Wait for the beeps and then hang up and test.  It may have been accidentally forwarded to another #
