Phone Keeps Making Calls

Answered

Hi folks,

 

A friend's mobile phone, sitting by itself on a desk in their house, keeps auto-ringing my number.

When I answer, it triggers the ringtone on their phone.

They then answer it to hear me asking "Who's Calling?"

 

They are equally perplexed as to what's going on.

 

Any suggestions as to what may be causing this bizarrerie?

(or solutions?)

 

Many thanks in advance!

Sorry...I can't help but had the same problem with my last phone....nearly sent us mad and decided the phones were having an affair. My solution? Threw the phone away and bought a new one....at least we now have my sanity back!


@My123 Hahaha, its certainly weird, I've never heard of that before?

 

I probably would have tried a master reset before throwing the phone away :-)

 

Maybe an app or a bug in the OS?

 

@koit Do you know what model and OS the mobile is?

Thanks for that suggestion, I might try to take them through a master reset.

 

Though the fact that they're an elderly couple could make it a tricky affair - I'll ask them to set aside a few hours in the morning and see if we can get it done before nap time Smiley Happy

 

(And unfortunately they live on a remote property, so a Telstra shop is a bit far for them)

Someone has sent your phone (probably by iMessage OR email, a bug). A sophisticated algorithm. DONT use public wifi as it is very easy way to hack you. I would suggest a hard reset 

My Telstra

View and activate your international roaming status, and purchase international Data Packs with the My Telstra app.
