Interesting thread OP.
I have shared a similar experience but it doesn't exactly fall into the same context. I have recieved messages that I can only describe as spooky and mysterious. I know I'm not the only person who has recieved these too, a few other people I know have said this has happened to them.
The messages rarely have any number specified, so there is no way to reach whoever left the message. If a number does happen to be present, it only yields a soundless phone call (not even rings), every now and then you'll hear a "clicking" sound as if someone is picking up or hanging up on the other end. The timestamp is ALWAYS 0/0/00. The thing that creeps me out is the actual messages. I have recieved one that said, "Call Home". Another messages read, "Don't be fooled" and perhaps the most mysterious message is, "Watch for the Storm".

I really have no idea what they mean, and I chalked them up as technical problems until others said they were recieving messages that were similar. I got this feeling that made my skin crawl when I started to think about the movie "White Noise" in conjunction with these messages.. Any insight on what may be occurring here?

Maybe John Titor has learned to text from the future now. Imagine; a whole new internet explosion on the Titor phenomenon....

At least you can text everyone you know right now and let them know that you'll still have the same number in 11 years time..

spoofing is easy in Korea since you can pick what number you want displayed, date however is a bit tougher but korean phones allow you to change it I do believe.

I was in the field and received a vulgar call from someone from the number 010 6969 6969 for example.

I 'work with computers', (he he he I like putting it that way) so I can tell you that anything is possible from changing the date to the number. You can even send SMS's online. So I wouldn't be surprised with something like this.

In the other hand I thought that story about Fox Trot 4 was very interesting.

Technology my friend......since this day we all went digital just years back we were analog.Technology is suited for that time only.Just because they have text 10 years in the future,dont mean your todays cell phone is going to get it.
Just like tv...we are all by law going digital in 2009,that means the old tvs we have wont receive the signal and will be worthless to use.
not true the old tvs will work,but you will need to purchase or rent an adapter box of sorts.so you were half right on that.

You know, I did get one of these about two months ago...I dismissed it and deleted it. I just figured it was a fluke...but I recall that I was taken aback by the timestamp, and that the body was blank. ODD!!!

You CAN send a blank msg from your phone... send a 'space'...

a couple of weeks ago i was taking a final when my phone starts ringing. I saved my phone number in my memory when i first got it in case i forgot it or something so it said "ME"
anyways, i was taking the test and it starts ringing. So i look at it, it has my picture caller ID, my name on it, and my phone number. So i freeze up. I let it keep on ringing. So when i got out of class, i checked my call log and it showed that there had been a missed call from me to me.
When i checked my most recent phone bill however, no such calls had been made from my number or received at such day and time. I thought i might have dialed myself but it's impossible because as soon as i dial myself, it sends me my voicemail as in where i check my messages and not leave a voicemail. Anyone have any ideas what could have caused that?




I had two somewhat similar experiences to yours a few years ago.


The first instance, I was at home, and alone, when one of the house phones started ringing.


Looking at the Caller ID display, I noticed to my surprise that the number ringing said "Home".


In other words "Home" was ringing "Home".


Curious, and getting over the initial confusion, I picked the phone up to see what would happen.


I still remember this clear as day because what I heard gave me the chills, especially when one considers the 'caller' was using ringing from "Home" and so was at "Home" with me!


I could hear what sounded like many voices speaking at once, rather like you do when say, a friend or somebody else you know rings you from a busy place like a bar or pub.


And then, louder, into the foreground of this noise, came a voice that I can only presume was the caller.


They sounded female, and all she said or managed was "Mmf.....mmf."


And then, with the many voices in the background still speaking at once, the phone went dead.



Remember, this caller, from what my phone said, was calling from home, where I was, alone.


And yet I had picked up the receiver and listened to a caller uttering "Mmf.....mmf.", from a place where it sounded like there was many people.


Of course, I was terrified. Brrr! The chills I get writing this now!



The second experience was not too long after the first, when I returned home with my family and my mother checked the answer machine, to discover that a message has been received from guess where?


Our home telephone number, when everybody had been out.



There was a message, waiting to be heard it seemed from our home number, and my mother, remembering my first experience that I had told her of, did not want to hear this message from "Home", and she deleted it, unheard.



I do wonder what that message may have said sometimes.



Do I regret it was deleted, unheard?



It depends. I do wonder what it would have said, on the other hand, it may have been terrifying to hear, a message calling from the house you live.....



Equally, I do wonder who the female caller from "Home" from the first experience was, and the people with them in the background.


I've got goosebumps from writing this.

Spooky.


I would be very interested to know when you received these messages? Roughly dates.

um did you ever think about the fact that you can change your calendar date on your phone? when you send the text message it will attach whatever date you have...
unless the date gets modified by the base station and then sent to your phone.
either way try sending yourself a txt message but change your date first.

This sort of reminds me of the time that the Blare Witch Project came out, and there was all these people on the net trying to say it was real.


That was a publicity stunt to get people to watch it! I think that maybe the text message could of got lost in a satelite maybe through a black hole...
(Just a thought!)

I recieved the "Call Home" message just recently actually. It was recieved on the 25th of May 2008 when I look at where it falls between other messages. The "Watch for the Storm" message was recieved in early December 2007. The strangest thing is, about a week later we were hit with one of the largest snowstorms to hit the Ohio region in quite awhile. It was so bad in fact that we couldn't drive anywhere. I was supposed to pick up a new puppy for the family up in Michigan the weekend the storm hit too.. Which needless to say I didn't go, I knew the storm was coming by that time and decided it would be best to hold off. I can't remember if the "Don't Be Fooled" message was recieved last summer or the summer of 2006.. Either way most of the messages have been recieved within the last year or two.

I would like to think it's just a technical problem as opposed to messages from the grave or some strangeness of the sort.. I just can't help but think this may be related to a recently deceased relative or something. I don't mean to sound ridiculous, but the messages all have a kind of parent or "elder" type warning or advice. I'm not sure what to think of them and I try not to think too far into the evidence I have been presented.

EDIT: Fixed a typo
