    You need to be a bit more specific. Is it connected to another Apple product?

    In the case you are not trolling...

    Do you share your Apple ID with someone?
    Do you have Hand-off enabled that would make it possible to call from a Mac?
    Other than that, I have no idea?

    But the people are from your contacts, right?
    It's not dialling random numbers.

    Or, someone is spoofing CallerID with your number (by coincidence), maybe for telemarketing, or worse.

    SO - not actually using your phone, just using your phone number?
    If it continues to be a problem for you, then you could have your phone number changed.

    The Verizon messages app allows your iPad/iPod to make wifi calls against your phone number but it has to be setup. In addition I believe on iOS 9 your iPad can use your cellular phone number tied to your Apple ID to make calls, but it has to be setup.

    Which people? Who? What? Does Verizon see the calls coming from your account? Is someone spoofing your number?

    Jeez...can you atleast provide remotely relevant info or is this you getting fooled on Apr 1 by your peeps?
