Default Any mobile phone experts around?

I made a call today from my mobile to a mobile phone owned by someone living a few miles away from me in South Wales.
I withheld my number by pressing 141 and the call went through and was answered .
Iíve just gone into the call history on my phone and the number I dialled is appearing as an outgoing call to ĎGlasgow Scotlandí??
The number I dialled isnít in my phone book or list of contacts so why on earth would it say that?
Does it mean the call recipient was in Scotland?
Itís stumped me!
Can anyone shed any light on it please?
Thanks .

My iPhone often gets the 'suggested location' wrong on incoming calls.

I sometimes see "A Name or Another Name" too, on calls from people I have in my contacts that are from the same/similar area.

I don't think it's an exact science dude.

Yeah, probably not an exact location/area as itís mobile to mobile. Maybe a similar area code or something.

Glasgow code is 0141 so the phone is interpreting your call as being there..!
