Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
What phone does your husband have, please? and is it in Spanish on his voicemail, or something else?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

What message is coming out in Spanish, on the Alcatel phone, please? can you catch any words of it? or, when does the message appear, when you call and... what/when?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
just the number
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

So, then, if I understand you rightly: you call your husband's Alcatel phone, and a voice speaking in Spanish states a number?

Can you tell whether the voice repeats the number you are calling from, or the number you have just called/dialed ?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
she say's the words and # in spanish
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

A pity I cannot hear the words... without knowing what they are (I do understand Spanish some at least, routine phrases for sure), it is hard to say whether the carrier or phone company is speaking in Spanish, or the Alcatel at the other end is, or (I doubt it but perhaps) your own phone is speaking.

So... can you record the words being spoken, and attach a sound file of the recording to your reply? I admit that's asking for a bit of effort, but there's no way of telling who what or why is speaking Spanish-and-a-number to you, until those words are known/hearable/etc.

You may return here at any time by going to

and thank you, ***** ***** no urgency about getting back to me - though I would like to help you with this odd and rare puzzling occurrence on your husband's phone.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

It might perhaps be that a setting for Language Choice on your husband's Alcatel phone has spontaneously changed to Spanish from English. If you would like to pursue that avenue of inquiry, let me know, and I will instruct you as to how to proceed.
