    it has called 2 people on its own. the S voice has turned itself on twice.
    Perhaps your phone likes to talk to those two people without you listening in?

    Does it appear that this is inadvertent **** dialing or that S Voice is making the calls?
    Do you use S Voice for anything? If not you can simply disable it.

    i do not us S voice for anything. and the people it called was the two people that i text the most! but on the upside since i have tried everything possible i traded it in for a galaxy S5 so far not having any problems. when the lady was trying to reset the phone it keep going to all different things before it would let us press the erase everything button. so i glad i don't have it anymore.

    My Android phone started doing this today. When I go to Manage Applications - All, at the very bottom there is an Android icon for an app that has nothing but Chinese characters for the app name, 4KB. When I select it and check its permissions, it appears to have every possible permission - directly call phone numbers, receive text messages, take pictures, record audio, etc. etc., modify contact list, erase SD card, a very long list. Anybody know what this app is? I'm wondering if there's malware on my phone dialing out randomly and capable of doing even worse things.

    Perhaps you should backup anything important using the Kies software on your computer and then perform a Factory Reset?

    Mine did this last night; auto-called 9 people in under 10 minutes at 6am. So embarrassing. Some of the people it was a 10 second call, others were over 2 minutes so it was just the background of my kitchen on their voicemail! One was a friend in Alaska, so it was 2am there (I'm in Indiana). It was playing a video when I woke up. It had also downloaded a few apps. This was all because it was hooked to a junk charger. These junk chargers make phone act strange. If you don't have full access to your phone while it's charging, you need a new charger. This charger freezes the screen or just jumps all over as if I were pressing the screen.

    It could be apps that have special permissions, decline the permissions that control calling, if that doesn't work contact your carrier.

    my phone does that all the time (calls people on it's own) but that's not what concerns me. My phone also does things like for instance when I'm on speaker phone not touching anything the it dials 666 or 6667 or 999 by itself. A little freaky. I also get odd calls with what sounds like back words breathing and odd noises in background like tapping and water. It does not sound like normal human breathing. BTW there is no number attached. It normally cuts in when I'm already talking to someone else and they have heard it as well and just yesterday I had 2 messages like that left on my phone. I cannot tell where the calls came from.

    I just had the same type thing happen on my Android. It was dying, so plugged it in (a generic charger..) and I was trying to text. It was flashing and acting odd, and taking pictures, and calling people..all on its own..and my text was gobbledegook, and couldnt correct it. Even though I;ve used it while charging before, it seems the problem was the fact it was plugged in and charging. It seems to be OK now.

    Mini S4 (will also post in Verizon forum) does the same thing... every day. By its darn stickin' self! I had some one tell me "impossible"... did the typical 'text message', closed it... put it down on a desk several feet away from me... within two minutes without (!) being touched, it started to dial the person I texted... lousy phone.

    My Galaxy S5 Active has been doing the same thing. Resetting it to the factory default corrected the problem for a few months, but it recently started doing it again. To be clear, it is not pocket dialing. It is dialing numbers while sitting untouched upon a flat surface.

    This also happens to me, but I have a HTC1X. Would you know how to solve this problem? This has been happening since the past month. I would think that I accidentally pressed something, but I didn't. By the way I don't have the finger gesture on. As well one time I had my phone in my hand while I was on social media, but then it started to call my family members. Is this is a glitch or something? This usually happens 1-4 times depending on how many times I check my phone.

    We went with the LG G3 as our phone choice but these phones when sending a text will dial the person instead. Can't figure out the why or how of it but you type the text press send. The phone starts to ring and the person to who you have sent a text is answering and the dial pad comes up. Yes you have the option to call someone within the text message but the phone symbol is on the upper right hand side. The send text button is above the keyboard so it is not an inadvertent click. It is happening on its own.

    Same problem on my Samsung Note3. Uninstall Skype app and remove your mobile number from your Skype caller ID profile. Worked for me.

    My Galaxy Edge S6 does this at least once a day, it also takes screen shots by itself. Usually when it is in my pocket and I'm listening to music on my headphones.

    I have gestures and all the call back type features disabled, it's not even calling the last contact viewed or anything like that.

    It even dialled my ex-wife once!

    What with the stupid volume warning bug and inability to stop reminders repeating, I'm so regretting buying an Android phone.

    I have the galaxy 7 and I cannot find where you guys are finding the motion in settings? I have always had an Iphone and tried this one since it has such a good camera. Regretting it already. If I am texting someone sometimes it calls them.

    I have been having this exact problem with my Note 4. Actually today my phone called my wife while the phone was completely unattended and charging. I am replying to this because I was looking for someone who was having the same issues.
