    at our company party today, there was a mentalist who blew our minds. Best close up card tricks I’ve been lucky enough to see. He did a bunch of tricks with our phones too. For one, he asked two of us to put our phones on the table and then told us to point to each other. He then moved our fingers together and the second he did, my phone called the other phone. We kept our fingers together, checked the phones to see if they were connected and then placed them down on the table again. When he pulled our fingers apart, the called ended. WITAF????

    i assure you that it has nothing to do with your fingers touching. :)

    seriously, of course its a great trick from yr description. i wish i had seen it myself !
    and, it has nothing to do with these 2 phones calling each other by themselves.

    i wonder if both of your phones might have been called by a 3rd phone, linked by Face Time Audio group call.

    LOL. Yes, we figured out the fingers part has nothing to do with it. We didn't think about the face time audio group call. However, he did it once with a phone that was an android phone, so...

    Was it an actual call, like one that still shows up in your call log?

    Yes. It shows up on the log. Both on one phone as a call made and the other as a received call. Tried to upload the video but the file is too large.

    Something like YouTube and then a link to it?

    The easiest method is to have a plant in the audience who is in on it.

    Since your phone was the one making the call, you must be the plant!

    I'd love to see a video of this.

    I can't upload here. I'm going to ask the people in it if they mind me putting it up on youtube to link it here. Unless someone knows of a quicker way to do it.

    If you upload it to YouTube, you can set the privacy settings to be 'unlisted', which makes it so that only people with the link (or anywhere you use that link to embed the video) can see it.
