You can also check the caller ID of the call on your old cell to see if it is a spam telemarketing call at https://800notes.com/ . Otherwise I personally would not be worried unless you in the future get more calls on your old cell phone or you know you missed any other expected important calls or texts around the time of the call showing up unexpectedly on your old cell phone. For the one call you did get, likely ESN mix up temporarily, weirder things have happened computer wise that cannot be fully explained. If do get more calls on your old 'inactive' cell/mobile, then call Verizon Wireless and get connected to technical support.

I even considered if this was some sort of sign in my current what-am-i-going-to-change-in-my-life phase. Alas, googling the number left me without guidance, lol.
It’s from a Twilight Zone episode where someone was getting calls from a deceased person. In your place you have a dead cellphone plan.

I wonder if it could have been a reverse-911 call that the provider was required to deliver to all phones connected to towers in that area?
