    I have just had this happen to me on my iPhone 4s. I've recently upgraded to the updated iOS 5.1 and have woken up to find that my phone has made 5 outgoing calls to 2 different people. I do work for myself and one of the calls made was to a customer that is probably wondering why someone from my company is snoring at him down the phone. This really needs an answer from an Apple representative with a viable solution as for this to go on for so long without a fix is unacceptable. I am now wondering whether to go and get an Android phone as I have never experienced anything like this on that operating system.

    Has anyone found a solution to this problem?  My husband has an IPhone 4 and it is randomly making calls on it's own and also trying to FaceTime people randomly.

    Hi, I wrote the previous message and the first response I have had to it was an email today stating that someone had replied to the thread. I'm not sure if Apple reads/responds/cares about these forums but I have had no solution and am resigned to the fact that it seems to be such a random problem that Apple cannot invest the time to research why it is happening to people. I'm sorry if this is not what you want to hear but on a plus side I will also add that it hasn't happened to me since and I have had no updates or even changed the positioning of where I leave it on the bedstand when I sleep. I'm not exactly happy with the iPhone and I'll probably have to get rid simply because I don't like the idea of Russian Roulette. If you do stumble across a fix/solution to this problem please post here as I'm sure there must be other people that have either given up on iPhone or are not happy with the solutions (or lack of) posted so far. All the best, Paul.

    No, basically they do not.  As was explained in the information when you signed up and created your account, this is user-helping-fellow-users forum, NOT an offical Apple Corporate Support forum.  If you need technical support from Apple, you need to telephone them.

    I resolved my problem the only way known to humans. Return the phone to Apple store before warranty runs out. got a new one. not the 4s, but has OS 5.0.1. not a problem since.

    Has anyone considered that there may be spyware installed on your phone?  There are applications such as mobilespy and flexispy that allow people to download software on your phone in order to see all of you texts, photos, phone calls, etc.  I believe they can also make outgoing calls although not 100% sure.  Might be worth looking  into.

    Well thanks for the helpful input. Now if someone could be as helpful and actually offer some form of solution to the problem that would be great. Thanks in advance.

    Unless the iPhone has been jailbroken, this is not possible.

    Here is steve jobs saying "we do not ship junk"

    but they have, since the iPhone dials randomly while at rest on a surface (not in a pocket).

     

    therefore I nominate the iPhone for the iTurd award 2012 for the most hyped and pricey piece of crap up to date.

    Apple does not seem to be fixing this issue.

  • Abele McCain Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    and the iTurd award 2012 goes to the iphone. for making multiple random calls from the phone number list, without the owner ever intending to make a single one of those calls.

    My phone dialled my boss at 3 am - I woke up because it had activated speaker phone and I heard it wring and go to his answering machine. The phone was locked sitting on my bedside table. Nothing disturbing it. When I checked the log it had called two other people. Not a good time of day to ring up your boss. I'm high profile in the public - I have many people in my contacts like the Premier of my province - glad I wasn't dialling him at 3:00 am! A bit creepy. May need to get the 5 sooner than later!

    my iphone 4 (t-mobile hungary) called up the last number from the recents, 2 days after updating to the latest iOS6. The phone attempted calls in every 30th second for 1hour 42minutes. These calls' duration was 15seconds, assuming the message service played then call ended. It happened when I was sleeping at 2.45 am didn't realize anything until received the phone bill. Unfortunately I was in the US and the called number was an UK number so this "call" costed me alot (330$) - roaming zone

    Now I can wait for my provider to investigate the situation and pray to God they put a sum to my credit and I won't loose that money. I'd never thought I could have a problem with an Iphone 4 like this. I had to invest a lot of energy to this and I feel unsupported, shame on you Apple!

    Mine just did it four times in fairly quick succession. I shut my phone off to stop it, then looked here before I re-booted it. My husband had just left the house in our "new to us" car that has bluetooth phone connection so I just called him to see if he was messing with it in the car.  AHA! I had not turned my phone's bluetooth off so it was, apparently, still connected and not allowing him to connect when he got into the car. He kept attempting ot re-pair it and did the dialing from the car in our garage. Guess I'll turn my bluetooth off when I'm at home.

    I discovered that my iphone 4s has been making random calls yesterday when a friend from Australia asked why he had so many missed calls at all hours of the day and night.  I suppose I should be glad they didn't connect or I would have had a massive phone bill.  I've since found out he's not the only one to have the calls.  The weird thing is mine weren't in my call log.  I've tried resetting my phone so hopefully that will do the trick. 

  • jessipalooza Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Just a quick notice to say this is still happening. My phone is randomly making and receiving calls with nobody on the other end. It's mainly between mine and my husband's. We'll be sitting there, not touching our phones, and suddenly one will say it's receiving a call from the other while the phone doesn't say it's making a call. Or they both start randomly calling the other. Whenever we pick up, it's completely silent on the other end.

     

    Please tell me somebody has found a fix for this or tell me Verizon covers getting a brand new phone, because this is very, very aggrivating and it's not only spending some of our minutes, but it's also signing me up to bogus lines like "Cat Facts" and I'm fairly certain it's also driving up my data charges for some reason.
