Several of these Iowa numbers have been showing up. Evidently they use VoIP to make calls from the US for a negligible amount. You can only call regular numbers if it's calling into a country that has caller pays mobile. The numbers I have collected so far:712-945-1111 712-945-0419 712-338-8849 712-858-8094
I'm not exactly sure why they're using Iowa but there it is.712-945 Salix IA (Aventure Communication Technology LLC) 712-338 Milford IA (Great Lakes Comm) 712-858 Superior IA (Superior Telephone Cooperative)
None of them appear to be the ILEC Qwest's CO codes.
