This dream often reflects a challenge involving communication in waking life, and suggests a need to consider how the dreamer is engaging with others.In the dream, the dreamer is usually attempting to call a familiar person, and they either keep connecting with the wrong person, or find themselves unable to key in the correct number on their phone.
This suggests that a logical way of communicating with someone, or a specific personal behaviour used when being with a particular person, is not really working any more. It is also experienced in dreams about computers or calculators where the dreamer keeps pressing the wrong buttons. This reflects that what they are doing in waking life just doesn’t really add up.
The message from the dream is that how you habitually behave with someone else method is no longer allowing you to easily connect with them. It may be time to reflect on what their needs actually are, and to pay close attention to what they are really saying to you.
