    I can hear the caller talking while my phone is still ringing

    Okay. This is really strange, but it's been happening for over a month now. When someone calls and my phone is ringing, if they're talking on their phone while they're waiting for me to answer, I can hear them! If I press "Silence" on my phone, the volume drops, but I can still hear them talking on the other end. Weird!

    I live in central California. Anyone else experiencing this oddity? I've experienced it with both my 6610 and my 3650, so it's not the phone. Must be my SIM, or just T-Mobile?

    I used to get that on my old Sprint phone (the Sanyo 8100)... I could hear the person talking before I answered, which actually provided for some good comedy when I did accept the call. I always thought it was extremely odd.

    I tested it from my house phone. We have SBC. When I call from that SBC home phone, I can hear the caller talking. I had my friend call from her Verizon phone and I could hear her talking. But when I had my friend call from his Cingular phone, I couldn't hear him talking. Don't know why there was a difference.

    It's kind of like having your own spy gadget.

    Yeah, I wonder what all this means. Is it bad?

    @Rash,

    This is known feature/bug of T-Mo. Now that you're aware, don't be talking when you call people. They may be T-Mo'ers.

    This has been happening on my phone too for a while now.

    I like it.

    The only way I can think that it would be a problem is if they were cursing and you were meeting your girlfriend's parents... or you're being arrested and your accomplice calls and talks to himself while it rings.
