    My own Number keeps calling me.....

    So over the last week, I kept getting a call from my own Cell phone number. I missed the call the First few times. Finally caught the call and Someone claiming to be a rep of T-mobile, Said there was a problem on the account, etc... someone had reported a problem by the names of two of my old x-relatives combined. She had asked for The other numbers associated with my account and my name, etc... told her I wouldnt give it to her and she told me to call Customer service.

    So I call customer service, of course they have no record of it or any complaint. Obviously something fishy going on.

    Sure enough the number keeps calling, answer it and it just hangs up, Stoppped for a few days and started agian today, like three times already. Its my very phone number calling me.

    Any idea who or what can call me from my own number?
    Not looking forward to changing my number.

    Sounds to me like it could be some sort of Voice Mail reminder. Check and see if you have any VM.

    Give absolutely no info to them. It is a scammer. They are spoofing the caller ID with your number.

    definitly a scammer, next time they call just keep an airhorn with you and blow it in the phone, or just start sexually harrassing them, but mean and angry like.

    That has no relevance with the OP's issue.

    OP stated that he/she was getting a call from there OWN number (that could be VM, as it is your #). I might remind you that this is a public forum were ALL opinions are welcome.

    When i call my voicemail its not the same number as my own number.
    On top of that i dont think my voicemail calls me asking for personal info.
    I dont get why they keep calling though, they dont answer they just hang up, i told them to piss off the first time i talked to them.

    also wierd they knew some names of family

    The fact that OP stated that someone was on the other side of the line should have tipped you off that it was not voicemail.

    If the number shows up in the missed calls area, go to a T-mobile dealer and ask them what the heck is going on. Also, try dialing #686# to make sure that your phone number appears on the screen. - If it is a scammer, they could have switched your number somehow. Dialing #686# will tell you what your number is to make sure it hasnt changed. Then like i said, take your phone with the call log into T-Mobile and show them. My steps I would try for fixing it would be as follows:
    1. Add a password to your account with customer service and change your password for online t-mobile.
    2. try a new sim card - You never know - it could work
    3. Have a warranty replacement sent out due to oddness of self calls???? Maybe not though
    4. Change your number

    Hopefully yopu wont have to change your number but hey..It would stop you from calling yourself - Ha Ha
    So I no longer have the big hot pink T over my head, nor do I bleed Magenta. I now sell Land Line phones, DSL and IPTV!!
