Just had a strange experience. I was looking for an item to purchase on eBay on my iPad. Saw what I wanted but needed to ask a question of the seller. I found the contact telephone as listed and was given the option to just Copy or Add to contacts. I decided to add the number to my Notes app for the moment. The number I was looking at was 017xx278461. I selected copy and pasted it into my app. Imagine my surprise when the number was then shown as a totally different number e.g. 164872xx710
I then double checked and to make certain I was not doing anything wrong, used the Add to contacts. The number turned out the same, 164872xx710. I also copied and pasted into an email, just in case there was an issue with the Notes app, but same result. How weird is that?
Can anyone tell me why this is happening and if it is a bug then it needs to be sorted?
