what does this message mean when i dial

What does this verizon message mean?

'your call cannot be completed as dialed'

i got a number on my caller id from my ex's neighborhood

its not his (old, home) number, but i am concerned that he got a new number or maybe called from a pay phone--

he has a history of psychological abuse

i tried calling the number back from a pay phone from the next county to see if i could find out thatit wasn't him to put my mind at ease..

but i got the above message

i dialed the number that was on my caller ID

would this message come up if it were a payphone that does not take incoming calls?

why else would i get the message.

thats the number that came into my caller id, but i am told it can't be completed as dialed..

i was calling from the 732 area code and did use the full number with the area code


i tried googling the number and doing a reverse look up

we live far apart--i don't know anyone else in his town--its too much of a coincidence to just be a wrong number
there is not enough to file a police report yet
