My son and I both have iPhones. He got his on day 1, i got mine 2 weeks ago. Today while he was sitting right next to me, his phone called me three times without him dialing or doing anything. Twice it rang with his set ringtone; the third time was the default ring set on my phone.

Then when reviewing my call history today, I saw that my phone had made a call to someone in my contact list, but I didn't make the call. The party heard me in the background, said he talked but I didn't respond. At the time the call was made, the phone was in the console in my car. Nobody touched it.

Anyone else experiencing this or do I just have some ghosts hanging around playing with my head??

    I would be inclined to say 'Ghost'
    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 show

    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!!!

    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?


    (sorry for the long and some what confusing post)

    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.

    We have 3 in our family and it's making random calls on 2 of the 3. It's so annoying. Has anyone figured out why?

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!
