    My phone was plugged in and on my counter all night last night. When I was leaving my house this morning I received a call (from a customer of mine), saying he noticed he missed several calls from me this morning... (at the time) 2 and 3 hours ago. Well, 2 and 3 hours ago - I WAS SLEEPING. My whole house was sleeping. So, I looked at my call log and sure enough, my phone called 3 different people multiple times last night. Ummmm... WTH? Take a look at the attached and notice the screen shot time, then the referred to call times.

    Really sounds like U have Malware (known malicious App dialer issue)

    DL a free malware App checker on the market (Google play), many AV/Malware Apps to try, see which current versions that have the better feedback, as commenters will vary

    Run the app and see what u have. Not all malware checkers give the same results, same as different PC AV programs so keep that in mind.

    I am sure you will find something with malware, I have not read any other Photon problem issues on most of the different Photon forums.

    Let us know what App it was when you find out, it may not have been reported yet.

    Hope that helps

    Did you install any apps that could have some extra permissions in them?

    Probably. I installed a few "booth" (photobooth) apps yesterday. I may give it another night and see what happens. Or, I will try uninstalling these apps and then reinstalling them 1 by 1 to see which, if any, end up being the culprit.

    Using the app Addonsdetector, I checked the permissions screen and all the main permissions are for more trusted apps (K9, Handcent, Telenav). I did use the install date area to uninstall everything I installed yesterday.

    I wonder what my phone would have said had someone answered.

    Has anyone figured out why this happens? My fiancée's phone does this. I just had him call me and its 3:15 in the morning. Jas now broken my sleep. This isnt the first time it has happened. Last week it was his dad and mum. Samsung have made an appointment but they will say he needs another phone and give us a refurbished one instead of a new one. Please help!!!!
