Do you use the 'password' feature to lock the phone? Try that and if you still have the problem; I'd make a call to Montel Williams to get on his showWindows XP

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2007 1:42 AM (in response to Bonnie Goldman)Do you lock the phone properly? I only ask as my mum used to have a tv set with a touch button channel selection panel and often it would change channel on it's own! I remember at the time that an engineer said that electricity in the air, statics from pets and people etc could simulate a key press. Also is your screen clean? Or maybe you do have a ghost!!!Mac Book 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo/2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2007 11:21 AM (in response to Bonnie Goldman)My iPhone was doing that same sort of thing last night. My friend, who has a Motorola phone, and I were driving back home and his phone starts ringing and I hear it and immediately my phone started ringing. We were both like "WOAH! Our phones are ringing at the same time!" Then at the same time we checked our phones and mine said Greg was calling me and Greg's said I was calling him! We both answered and could hear each other talking and got a little freaked out. Then, about fifteen minutes later my phone rings and its a call from Dmitri. I answered and he told me that his phone was saying that I had called him. I reset the phone. A couple minutes later it did the same thing to another contact!
So basically, my phone is locked, in my pocket, and it calls someone but says they're calling me. What should I do?

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2007 4:48 PM (in response to TravisDonovan)Well, I do feel better knowing that the ghosts inhabit someone else's phone, too.
And, yes, I do lock the phone properly and nothing was touched accidentally. The phone wasn't in my pocket or purse, but on the table all by itself. Same with my son. Hasn't happened since yesterday though.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 2, 2007 4:20 PM (in response to flipflopz)Uh oh, I keep calling people w/o knowing. Usually right after I have talked to them my phone will call them. This is embarrassing to say the least. Especially since I have a habit of talking to my self while im in my car. Yesterday I heard this little voice in my cell phone saying hello! Hello! then when I picked it up one of my emplyees was like...hey you just called me back and I heard you conversation, who were you talking too. And I was like , uh oh, umm I was talking to myself. Now they think I'm crazy, which I'm not , but this phone sure is.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 13, 2007 8:42 PM (in response to Bonnie Goldman)So glad to hear it is not just me with the call back ghosts! My 10 day old phone is doing this too. Apple needs to address this as it appears to be some sort of quirk.
I also have speakerphone low volume and people complaining about the quality of my voice issues as well. I think I should just try another one and pray they can find me a good one!
Currently Being ModeratedDec 13, 2007 9:27 PM (in response to Bonnie Goldman)I had the same problem 2 days ago, it only happened once.
The same day I got a message on my phobe "no sim card found", I removed the sim card, I put it back again and now is working fine.
I hopr this help.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2007 8:53 AM (in response to Bonnie Goldman)Had this happen to me twice so far. My wifes IPhone will call my Iphone and she had no idea. When she got home from work I asked her why she called and didn't say anything. She said I never called you.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2007 11:38 AM (in response to Bonnie Goldman)I am not having this problem- +but since I am giving iPhones to my family for X-Mas I am a bit curious.+ Do the calls "register" on your recent calls list?
One poster says their iPhone calls numbers that they have just called, as if a redial was being triggered. Has this been the case for anyone else that has experienced this problem?
Does your phone only make phantom calls to people on your favorites list or does it dial randomly from your full contacts list? Also, do you know if your phone has dialed completely random numbers?
Do these phantom calls show up on your bill? It would really suck if your phone started randomly dialing Bora Bora!
Sorry for the 20 questions, this is kind of an interesting puzzle! I will be watching my recent calls list from X-Mas on!g4, Mac OS X (10.4.10), power user
