    I have the same entry on my cell phone and the same question.

    This was my first Google hit for "*now" 669, so backtracked to answer this.
    Or copy and paste what I found for the search: at&t "*now" 669

    It was in reply to:
    I have at&t how can i block a number from calling or texting me?
    (that sentence is the source (Google it)).

    quote
    "you will have to call *now or *669 from your at&T phone then
    follow the commands that apply to you then you may be able
    to talk to an operator and get the number blocked or redirected
    to another number (rejection hot line is a good one) hope it helps!
    Source(s):
    i interned at an at&t store for my business class"
    unquote

    Why it's on my three year old phone is a mystery, but I got
    my answer.

    Operators can and do put service numbers on the SIM cards. The the phones copy/display them in the phonebook.
