    I just logged into my sprint, and almost had a heart attack. Apparently, I have "friends" in Jamaica and the Dominican Republic now. That was an extra $232.90 on my phone bill in one night. Before you ask, no I don't have children, and no one else has access to my phone. If it happens to you, make sure you back up everything, as Sprint is going to want you to completely reset your phone, right up to using the MSL.

    They took off the charges, it will take two or three days to process, though.

    Chicks always cost you, one way or the other. I should know I'm married to one.

    Same thing happened to me. Jamaica and Dominican Republic. The fraud dept. rep told me the calls were originated in Sacramento. Pretty tough for me to do considering I was on the east coast when the calls were made.

    Be careful answering calls with 876 area code. If you stay on too long, they some kind of information that allows them to mimic your phone on the network.

    I saw on the news last week, that smartphones were being targeted by hackers, usually in **** sites. If you visited these sites they would get control of your phone's info and make long distance calls while you were on those sites.

    Seems to be a lot of trouble to go through to steal a phone call.

    My phone is quite embarrassingly stock, I don't visit **** sites on my Pre (LOL), and I have not donated to Haiti. No 876 numbers either, although I'll definitely keep that one in mind. As far as I know, there's no explanation for why. If you find yourself suddenly with a Long Distance Restriction on your account, make sure you check your bill - that's one of the signs.

    Oh, and I haven't downloaded any apps in awhile. So I know it's not that either.
