Question: Phantom calls

iPhone 7; iOS 11.2.6

Bought a new iPad and fiddled with continuity settings.

Around 3am Fire department called to ask if there was an emergency. NO

Phone made 7 calls to 3 numbers in 20 minites while I was asleep.

All numbers were on Favorites list for phone.

Apple Support ran several tests. No conclusions as to cause.

Did learn that Facetime was "ON" on phone and was OFF on ipad.

I shut off "Calls on Other Devices" on phone.

Apple's suggestions were to

1. Check with carrier. [Carrier confirmed that my phone made the calls (duh!)]

2. Back up and restore the phone

Next night, no calls made.

Following night at about 0330, I awoke to recording playing on phone. It had called a number (twice) from my Favorites that had a recording that the number was unassigned.

Facetime OFF; Connect to other devices OFF

iPad Facetime OFF;

Checked iPhone 5 (SIM removed) Facetime waiting for a connection. Turned it OFF

Phone is being backed up & restored while I write this on my Mac.

Any other ideas?


iPhone 5s, iOS 9.3.2
