Default I got your number + black box

I've worked it out mathmatically and I get zeros for all seven symbols. Not only that, but the question asks who is calling, not what's being called. The obvious answer I think is "you" (you're the one calling, right?). Unless this is a famous phone number, and as weird as 000-0000 is, I don't think anyone has it.

My other problem is with black box. I've tried every photo editing trick in the book, and it's still a solid color block. I can't think of what else to do. I even set the black box to be my wallpaper in case some subliminal image popped up, without any results.

I do have an actual Hamumu forum name (Deciple_of_Dumb, spelt wrong on purpose), so if anyone has hints (not answers!) it would be a big help is they could pm me.

Hm. If you haven't figured out the black box, you mustn't have had your fill yet.

Thanks, I've finished black box, but I'm still having trouble calling 000-0000.

While all zeros is a solution, there is a better one where each symbol represents a different number. Or, if you're old enough to remember back when a pay phone only cost 10 cents to use, you could probably guess the answer.

True - it is impossible to solve mathematically. You need to use deduction and more information than just the "equations". After all, it's not a math problem, it's a puzzle!

I got this one very quickly. Of course, it helped that I grew up in the early 80's.

"in the night, all the cats are black"
Lack of light can make things that normally look different look the same because of the black shade than covers everything.

Still stuck on Black Box. The hints don't help, as it could be ANY animal, and I've tried a lot. Help!

There really aren't a lot of animals that it could be, really, unless you're doing something horribly wrong.
