    I was sitting on my couch just now and noticed my wife's iPhone light up. It showed that I was calling her. I looked across the room and saw that my iPhone was sitting on the counter. I went to answer the call, but it ended before I could.

    Out of confusion I checked my iPhone. My phone had a missed call from my wife at the same time.

    Both our phones show missed calls from each other at the exact same time, and neither were touched. Any ideas how this could happen? (besides an iGhost)

    Wow, good thing you didn't answer.

    I heard the exact same story about some other guy who that happened to, but he answered the phone. Exactly 13.72 days later, which just happened to be the number of seconds he stayed on the phone, he was found dead of "natural causes."

    Since you didn't answer, I'm sure you'll be fine.


    Ooh, and yeah- I'd call the phone company.

    That's some spooky ****!
    Had you tried calling her prior to that and had a call dropped?
    My phone has tried to auto redial sometimes when a call is dropped, idk why or how, but it has happened. Maybe thats what happened?

    Other than that, could have been death calling you like everyone else said.

    We hadn't called each other all day.

    Also, we just noticed that she has a voicemail on her phone, but it's a recording of my voicemail greeting.

    Ya know. If you were a newbie I'd be seriously questioning this but since your not.

    It's possible that a conference call was initiated somehow on both phones.

    Your wife is having an affair and has her boyfriend listed as you in her address book.

    Is there an different answer by seeing the missed call log instead of assuming he's telling the truth? As you mentioned the troll factor is low, so he's either right or mistaken or just having a bit of "fun". Personally I don't put much stock in screenshots or scanned phone bills as both are 'shopped quite easily. And if he's pulling our leg then detailed questions here won't help, either.

    But back to topic, the OP needs to call his carrier. If they confirm the call originated from the wifey's phone and is not their glitch, it's easy for me to believe she's got an app/service enabled (JB or not) or a hardware problem. I don't know the level of detail the internal logs keep but a Genius might be able to shed some light on this.
