    This morning (3am), I woke up to hearing someone saying "Hello? Hello? Hello?". When I looked at my phone, it had called 10 people, which were the last 10 people I had called the day before. I use my phone for business, so having it call people in the middle of the night is definitely not a good thing! :cus:

    Has anyone else had their phone call people?

    i have NEVER seen this happen before. sounds like your droid MIGHT be trying to take over the world. i would back up everything you can, and do a hard reset as fast as possible.

    I've seen various bluetooth headsets do this in the past but never heard of a phone doing it.

    Where is the hard reset button on the Droid? And do you know what it will wipe out and what it will save?

    Thanks!

    Before you do that, call up verizon tech support, see what they tell you. Because a hard reset will wipe out everything on the phone and rebuild it from a recovery build.

    I was getting strange calls at 3 am last night too!!! I got 3 of them and then it stopped. I doubt it was the phone calling me, but the number on the call log was 880-1-67-5590870...any ideas???

    I'm seriously starting to think those commercials were not a joke. These devices really might be "waking" up. Sort of like War of the Worlds...I think I may return mine to VZW and just get a flip phone.

    I just locked my Droid in a safe. Not risking anything.........

    Sweet!

    I had no idea that Motorola/Google had engineered the DROID with Artificial Intelligence.

    (Looks over at DROID eagerly awaiting some sign of perspicacious autonomy) :)

    Hmm, maybe the Visitors are intercepting transmissions and dialing up those that have been hiding out on Earth for the past 7 years.

    My droid has also called somebody in the middle of the night, put itself on speakerphone and made a call by itself at 3:30 am.

    Could it be a malicious app doing this? Everyone with the issue should list out their apps and see what matches.
