Gidday. I recently got my Spark account and was charged for a call to the UK (was just a few dollars which Spark kindly credited). The strange thing was that there was no call in the phone's call log from just a few days ago. My question is: Is it possible for iPhones to make random calls by themselves? Or did I just randomly get someones call to the UK chucked on my account? If it's the former then it's quite a scary prospect that you could potentially me lumped with a call that not worth a few dollars, but hundreds of dollars. Any insight or advice would be great

I would almost certainly say it's not the later.


I'd suspect it's something todo with some sort of iphone app activation




if you flick me your account details i'll pass it along to the right folk to sanity check.

Did you Google search the number that was called?
