WHY DOES MY PHONE CALL ITSELF

I have it set up that my caller id displays on my TV.  In the last couple of weeks the phone will ring and my own phone number shows up beginning with E ###-###-####.  I answer it and nothing on the other end.

Did you accidentally enable call forwarding or simulteanous ring?

Re: WHY DOES MY PHONE CALL ITSELF

I have had the same thing.  It is obviously being spoofed, a common practice by telemarketers (commercial, political, and charities) to hide their true identity.  I just ignore it as there is nothing I can do to stop them.

If a forum member gives an answer you like, give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem.

Re: WHY DOES MY PHONE CALL ITSELF

Mine was doing that also and then I discovered that I had the "Voice Mail Screening" turned on. Once I turned it off it stopped.
