    Default A weird call came through -

    I Hi everyone,
    At 1am, I had 2 calls come through.
    First, my block mode was on.

    The call that came through had a weird ring tone, my screen became all black, it had a picture of "someone" and it said Manager Rajat. Since block mode was on, I'm wondering how this call came through.

    I checked the call log and the call didn't register into my call log. I figured that when the screen popped up because it didn't look like a "normal call." My screen never turns complete black with a picture when someone calls. The picture was of a guy but it wasn't clear enough. I'm not familiar with this person so I didn't answer, plus I was sleeping. My phone kept ringing at 1am, I had to completely turn off the phone.

    The ring tone sounded weird and nothing like I've heard before. It was loud, sounded like a rotary phone.

    Not sure what's going on here or who to contact about this.

    This is just creepy.... Didn't get a good night sleep at all.

    Albrigg, why would I be trolling? Been on this forum for months.

    I would call Att but not sure what they can do. Just thought I would post here and see if anyone else had this happen. Yes. It's freaky and weird. I didn't sleep well and stayed up most of the night trying to go back to sleep.

    Okay I believe you, I'd contact your network provider and they'd be able to check any connected call even if it's not in your call log, also do me a favour answer my last thread?

    It's an odd one for sure. Someone working for a carrier may be able to explain it. There was an amusing thread of a similar nature you may have seen (below). My guess it was a support centre misdialling, but that might not explain the time. Probably a once only thing, and maybe call blocking wasn't working as it should. There are a lot of settings in there.

    Phone rang at 3:25am... Grrrrrr! - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Maybe misdialing from India or another country?
    Wonder why the number didn't register on my call log? This wasn't a normal call by the way it "looked" and rang through. It sounded really weird. I'm not exaggerating. Wonder if they're going to call again tonight? Wish I had a screen shot or picture.

    Reading your description again, yes it wasn't a normal call. And it rang twice?
    Some people had theories as to why calls may not appear on the call log. Maybe the Blocking Mode kept the screen dark, but it still got through.
    (I get voice messages and no log of a call, but that's not unusual)
    I don't know what to suggest, except ask AT&T CS how it could happen. I doubt if it will recur, but nice to have an explanation.
    Lots of coffee and a camera tonight?

    Makes sense! But I have no one in my contacts by the name of Manager Rajat. Lol

    I hope it doesn't happen again. It's scary. Lol
    I'll give AT&T a call and see if they're aware of anything.

    It wasn't fun losing sleep last night wondering where the call came from. Phew!

    Did anyone else knew that you can make calls from Facebook?

    I think that used to happen to me with my iPhone but I deleted my Facebook over 2 yrs ago so it's hard to remember. I do remember having to turn off the chat feature on FB as random people would msg me at all hours of the night.

    Sarks.
