    Hearing another persons phone call while on my cellphone...anyone experience this?


    So this has happened twice over the last few days. I'll be on the phone talking to a friend and in the middle of the conversation I hear a bunch of static and I hear another persons conversation. I can hear two people talking. I can't really make out what their saying because it's so faint and static. It lasts maybe 20-30 seconds then cuts out and my call is perfectly clear again.

    Wondering if this has ever happened to anyone before? I have an iPhone.

    Haven't noticed anything like that since my college days with a landline.

    Is it the same friend? And does she/he have a landline? With all the digital technology in current cell phone service, it is hard to believe it has anything to do with the cell phone portion of the service.
    Overly complicated cell phone service. Unlimited with iPhone X. Low cost plan on other national network with iPhone 7+. And a real cheap pay per use plan for "home number" with Moto E4. Combination of best chance for coverage when traveling, and a home replacement number to give out when I don't want to give out my primary cell phone.

    I'm gonna go ahead and state what I think is the obvious. This is not an issue specific to an iPhone. You might want to either make a new post in the forum for your carrier here on HoFo, or a mod can move it.

    Also, I doubt it's on the cell end, sounds more like your other caller, unless they're on a cell phone too.

    EDIT: disregard, I see you posted in your carrier forum as well, so I think that's the right place to get an answer.

That's where cell phone tech got the G's from. The G stands for Gigs and the number is the number of Gigs the signal is.
