    I think we all have to remember that this is BETA software (the desktop version anyway) and if the phantom calls originated from desktop versions of the software then we should all expect this.

    9:26am ( Thailand Time ), my wife's iphone 4 get's a Facetime Call from me.
    When i was just standing next to her.

    Both of us have 4.2.1. My Macbook was also not on, and my iphone4 was in standby.
    Very strange.

    The same thing just happened to us, at 2am. My FaceTime called my husbands phone, but when I looked at my phone no calls where being made from it. 5 mins later the reverse happened. Creepy!

    I was wondering if it's between people/devices that had used FaceTime before and had it fail. Perhaps apple released all the failed calls in the system, with a reboot of some servers.

    The same thing happened to us, at 0226 GMT (UK). My FaceTime on iPhone 4 (4.2.1.) called my wife's iPod Touch 4 (4.2.1.). My iPhone has no log of the call but her Touch has a log of it.

    Both were fast asleep. Spooked beyond belief - thought our 6 month old pup had learned how to use my iPhone!!

    I just wonder how many other people were called by my iPhone - can't possibly check if everyone in my address book was woken up by me .................. !!

    The same thing happened to us at 2:30 am uk time. My wife's i4 got a facetime call from mine while we were both fast asleep. Spooky.... And both our phones are on ios4.1
    Seems to be apple servers.

    I think you may be right. I had 2 failed calls from my iMac to my son's iPhone 4 (before he got it connected to a network) and he was then treated to 2 calls at 2.30 in the morning (UK time) at a time when my iMac was off.

    Had us both scratching our heads when he called to complain/enquire whether we had burglars.

    Would have to have originated somewhere central.

    Exactly the same behavior in here. (Belgium). As i've woke, i've seen that i've had a 19 minutes facetime call with... myself. At least from the email i've used for the FT beta. Computer was off anyway. And, at 03:30 (gmt+1) which seem to correspond with other people experiences.

    [edit] which is even more weird is that i wasn't connected at all to any wifi as my wifi was "off" on the iPhone. another issue is that is i'm not connected on the wifi and try to call me from another account, i don't have any ringing or anything, just a badge that mention that i've missed a call if i'm using the phone, or a "missed facetime call" notification if the phone is locked. But the phone isn't ringing anymore on a ft call while not connected on wifi. this gets really weird.

    It does seem to be the same time across the world, 6:30pm LA, 9:30pm NY, 2:30am London, 3:30am Europe. What was Apple doing?

    Happened to me too, not happy about it. Girlfriend got a Facetime call at 2:30am from my mac but I was in bed with her 16 miles away at her house. When trying to answer there was nothing, I panicked thinking someone was in my house or hacking into my computer that I ended up driving back in the ice and -9c to find out my computer wasn't even on!!

    What's going on Apple? Risking people's lives and causing panic that I've seen on other posts isn't on!

    Yeah, happened back here in Portugal at around 2.30 am too (GMT time, same as UK).
    Some glitch must've happened...?

    my girlfriend's iP4 started ringing with a FaceTime from me. I was sleeping next to her...

    OK - me too. Just posted in another thread but this is exactly what happened to me last night.
    At 02:26 UK time received a FaceTime call from relative in the US who uses facetime beta for Mac. Apparently another friend of his received a facetime as well from him at the same time.
    His Mac was switched off and he was out for dinner at the time.

    So the more I think about this, the more curious I'm becoming. I wonder if everyone experienced the call coming inbound from the last person with whom they had a Facetime conversation with?

    I know that is the case with my wife's and my experience.
