    Got a call from my daughter last night shortly after 10:30 pm, and she said the reason she called was that I had called her, but when she answered there was nobody there so she was calling back to see what I was calling about.

    Looked at the call log, and indeed it showed an outgoing call to her number about a minute before she called me back. I had been asleep with my Pre charging on my nightstand, no apps active. (I have the close phone app on hangup patch, to keep me from inadvertantly redialing someone). At any rate, the most recent call I had made before turning in was not to her.

    Has anyone else had anything like this happen? Could the phone app have launched on its own and dialed a number randomly?

    You must have the "Miss Cleo" app installed -- it knows who you want to call before you do and makes the connection just in time...

    I've only had my pre a week and can't answer your question but I do know its so easy to redial on the phone pad. I had to put a pin on my phone at night...my 12 year old cat touched my pre and dialed my mom at 3am! Figured he can't input a pin so no more calls for him!

    Stranger things had happen with these phones. However, welcome to precentral.net.

    I have it on good authority that Miss Cleo was a fraud...

    I know something similar happened to me once trying to use an after market charger. Apps started opening by themselves; including the phone app. Is the cable you're using the one that came with the Pre?

    No, haven't used it for months. This is the one I normally use:

    But I also frequently use the charger that goes to my Motorola bluetooth earpiece, which was what I was charging with last night.

    But I've never anything like this happen before. Only app I've ever had launch on its own is Classic, and that happens sometimes even when it's not charging.

    Probably a different problem, but my touch screen went crazy last week and I had to get a replacement phone. Making phantom phone calls was one of the things it would do. It would act like I was touching all over the screen when it was just sitting on a table with nothing around it.

    Interesting... had seen that thread but never looked at it.

    Hopefully it was a freak occurance and won't happen again. If it does, will maybe do a restart every night before going to bed.

    Well, at least it was your daughter, and not...

    "Dave, what are you doing Dave? Why are you calling me in the middle of the night Dave?"
    Sent from my slowly diminishing intellect

    I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!

    Weird, keep us up to date man.

    I accidentally call people (but that's user error).

    My wife just sent me a text asking me if I ever figured out exactly what happened, and suggested that my phone is possessed....

    How can you be sure that your wife truly sent that?

    I have seen Pres with malfunctioning touchscreens open and navigate around different apps without any user input. Notably, when my friend's Pre is malfunctioning, we saw it open the contacts list a couple times and click on a random contact, so what happened to you certainly is possible.

    Hahahaha.... I'm actually old enough to remember when it would have been "In my country, Pre calls you."
