S4 - Without Answering Call Caller can hear my conversation

This is weird guys but I can't find the solution on Google.
My S4 kitkat having some issue where caller can hear my conversation and I didn't answer the call either. For example, my friend called me one time and I saw that it's him and didn't answer the call and continue conversation with my girlfriend. He called me back after few min and I picked up the call. He said that he heard my conversation until phone was ringing. ....so I am kind of Frick out because couple of folks told me the same...
..
Is anyone else had issue like this..please help..

Hello.
Are you saying they could hear from the phone microphone BEFORE they rang you, or while they rang you until it went unanswered.

There are accessibility, palm control sensors and voice control settings to answer a call, depending on the device - but I don't believe there is a capability for a caller to listen in to a contact before a call is answered by whatever means.

Yes, I could hear the phone ring and the conversation. I tried to call from my girlfriend phone and told her to don't answer the call and asked her to say something while phone is ringing and I swear I heard everything she said without answering the call.

Thanks for registering.
You should consider joining a Magic Circle in your area. You seem to have special powers.

There's still not enough information there to figure out what's happening, but I don't think that's normally possible. If you can hear her after the phone has stopped ringing, there may be a simple explanation then. You can of course check the call log and see if it was an answered call that used some seconds of time.

Enjoy the forums.

Re: S4 - Without Answering Call Caller can hear my conversation

Well , let me try again maybe I wasn't clear.
Issue: when anyone call my Galaxy S4 and if I don't answer the call and let the phone ring. The person on other end who is calling my S4 can easily hear my conversation in another world, if I am calling you on your Galaxy S4 and if you don't answer my call and let your phone ring until it goes into voice mail, during that time if you are having conversations, I can very easily hear that. So basically, you didn't answered my call but I was listening your conversation. ...
This is bothering for a long time and I checked all the settings and they are default as long as I know.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: S4 - Without Answering Call Caller can hear my conversation

Hi. I understand what you are describing.

I personally cannot offer you an explanation, but there may be someone on the forums who would have an insight into how that could be. Would the caller to your phone, who hears your conversation without you answering, have the call logged and timed on their phone - I don't know.

If no one else responds here, ( a lot of people overlook a quick question on this particular forum) you can raise it again in Android Central Community - General Help and How To forum, or Introductions.

Just experienced the same thing. I missed a few calls from my Mother, as my phone was on mute. When she was calling me, even though I didn't answer, she heard the conversation I was having with my fiance. I have no idea how or why this is happening. Anyone have any clues?

I had the exact same thing happen today on my Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.4.4. My husband called me and could hear me talking BEFORE I answered the phone. And it's repeatable. We tried it at least 4 times and every time he could hear me (and any other sounds in the room) while the phone was actively ringing. Once I pressed the reject button, he could no longer hear me. For us, it only worked when both phones were using Wi-Fi calling. We were both on the same wi-fi network too. We plan to try this again when we are on different wi-fi networks and see if it still happens.

It's like the microphone gets turned on before the accept button is pressed. His phone is a Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3. We tried the reverse situation where I call him, but I couldn't hear him before he answered.

I know it's been several months since your post, but this is glitch is too interesting to not reply!

This has started happening on my Galaxy S4 as well. I think both times I have been on Wi-Fi calling. Not sure if it is a phone issue or related to my carrier, T-Mobile. This is a weird bug and thankfully hasn't caused any embarrassment yet based on what the other person calling me may hear.

There's something going on with the S4 then. There may be commonality as in T-Mobile or wifi calling as Ryan says, but the previous posters haven't posted again. There could be another thread or forum on this.

Happened to me. too. with S7 today.

This is not a minor glitch!!!!

Imagine the damage done to a relationship if you say something offensive not knowing they are listening. Lawsuit if not fixed. I'm calling consumer cellular to report it.

Funnily enough something similar to this has just started happening to me on my s22 ultra, its happened twice both from the same person, they call me accidentally, pocket call I assume from what I'm hearing, the green and red buttons come up to accept or decline the call but the entire time the phones ringing waiting for me to accept or decline the call I can hear them on the other end.

Welcome to AC!
Try clearing the phone apps data and force stop it to see if it helps .
