The caller ID of 918-042-5291 is more a formatting issue for the North America numbering plan. The country code for India is 91 and 80 as a city code is Bangalore.

90 is the country code for Turkey, and it appears the cell phones in Turkey start with 5, so a phone number 905, which it might be Ontario, could also be a cell phone in Turkey.
