    Ive been getting constant calls from these strange phone numbers:

    7188389202

    9234346144

    and

    923434614416

    Each time the phone rings, if i answer, the line goes dead... if I let it ring and voicemail picks up, the line also goes dead and no message is left.

    I try and call these numbers back, but when i dial the 718 number, it just redirects to my voicemail.

    The other two numbers give me error’s when i try and call them.

    I’ve also gotten random calls from various working numbers - the people are telling me I called them, when I didnt. This happened a few days ago on Sunday and also on Saturday.

    Would someone mind trying these numbers and telling me what happens? This is the weirdest thing ever.

    I get that from time to time. Not from those particular numbers, but the exact same thing happens.

    I get calls from 'unknown', 'blocked', or 'anonymous' numbers, too - and the same thing happens - dead line if I answer.

    Fuckin' weird.


    Lemme try and find my phone, I'll give 'em a ring.

    edit: the 718 number rang twice, then went to a busy signal. iPhone shows it as a NY, USA number.
    The 923 number says 'your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check the number and try again'.

    A quick Google search shows that 923 isn't a valid area code in the US. Poking around and it seems that it's some sort of middle eastern number.

    Fuckin' weird.

    It could be someone fucking with you *shrug* Iphones have an application you can use to call any phone from any number you want.

    I use to call my friend from his own number and he would trip

    Caller ID can be spoofed by anyone and they're probably just random numbers. 99% of the time it's an automated telemarketing computer checking to see if your line is active. If you answer, they know it's a marketable line.

    I agree- it's probably someone that has a caller id faker app installed on their phone. Get a call blocker app and tell it to ignore those numbers and problem is solved.

    wasnt there a way you could put in someones number to fuck with them
    and then it would call them, and another random at the same time
    and each would think the other called them?

    I don't know if you can do that or not- I haven't ever tried the app myself. All I know is one day a few months ago- ramdom members of my family kept calling me and asking me if I had called them, and I checked my call log to be sure I had not butt-dialed them, and I had not. Later that day they were all calling me back asking why I just called them and asked me to call them right back- but I had never called them. I think it was one of my brothers that was doing it- but I never got them to confess.

    Hmm. Well my phone wont do apps, so thats out. Also, the numbers will call frequently in succession - probably an autodialer like some of you have suggested.
