    In the browser and some apps strings of numbers are treated as clickable phone numbers accidentally selecting them will dial your phone.

    Mine has done it several times during signal drops. Its not something you did. It is a known issue, and has happened to other members on here. Mine was just sitting idle, lost signal, then started dialing *22899, on its own. I hung it up and it did it again.

    It's the 4G equivalent of 3G's #228 for Verizon. It is used to initially activate your phone, and then update your phone if you alter your service (roaming extras, etc...).

    Why it would do it randomly I can't think of any idea, unless you made a change to your account and it is trying to update. If not, I'm drawing a blank. I would think that it is a Verizon issue, not so much a Gnex issue with the phone itself.

    This has been going on the since the GNex launched on VZW. There's another thread here about the same thing. Just let it complete or it'll keep doing it until it does. The scary thing is that it doesn't show up in your call log. I 1st noticed it because I heard that annoying hold music 1 night and saw that my phone was in a call.

    Happened to me one morning during a subway train ride in NYC. I had no service and I was listening to music and the music would pause and the phone would dial it. Did it 3 times in a row. Put it in airplane mode and that stopped it. Hasn't done it since.

    Interesting. Good to know.

    It happened to me in the middle of nowhere in the desert when I had no reception and I thought my phone was hacked because it kept trying to call it. I got scared and put it in airplane mode until I got home and it never did it again.
