Re: Phone number

Hi @Annoyedone, thanks for getting in touch with us. Since the number is disconnected, it's unlikely to get in contact with the person. Did you lose this number a couple of years ago?

Re: Phone number

Thanks for clarifying that for us. In that case, the number is most likely in quarantine for 6 months and then released back to telecommunications companies for public use.


I would recommend contacting Instagram's support team for further assistance.
