Haunted Phone?

Back in the early 1990s, before cellular phones were available I had the following experience that has bugged me ever since:
A friend of mine had passed away from an ashtma attack. One day after college I was having a snooze and the land-line phone rang. The male voice said that they were looking for a guitarist (I was heavily into playing back then) and when I replied it was like white noise. The band never existed, and it was nobody that I knew. Although what was said lasted only a few seconds, it was all symbolic stuff I knew, but so disjointed.
I subsequently heard that the phone phenomenon is called the "little voice" from beyond. Perhaps it was just somebody pulling my leg, and in South Africa there were still political wire-taps going on. Still I'm not convinced it was natural. I mean, I knew his sense of humor, but couldn't he have told me something more profound? I clearly remember the voice being as desperate as mine when the distortion came in ... hello ... hallo.
Are there any similar experiences, and what about mobile phones?

My wife's mother was the matriarch in our family and was very close to her two grandchildren (one of them was my daughter). She (my mother in law) was diagnosed with lung cancer after years of closet smoking and voiced on numerous occasions her sorrow in not being able to see her grandchildren grow and to be there for them. Well, after six months, she finally passed and we attended her funeral.

When we came home, my wife and I were busy putting things away when the land line rang. I thought my wife got it and she thought I got it, but in actuality our daughter answered the phone. When we finally determined what happened, I asked my daughter who had called. Now, she was about five years old so she didn't mince words. She said" Grandma called". I thought she meant my mom, so I asked her what grandma Julie wanted. She said is wasn't grandma Julie, but grandma Cindy (Grandma Cindy was the one that passed). At this point, my wife and I were conflicted with many emotions. I blurted out "what did Grandma Cindy say"?

My daughter replied "Grandma Cindy said that Jesus was coming".

And that was that. Now it has been over 16 years ago, but it still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

From the mouths of babes I guess. Thank you for that, it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I don't follow one particular religion, but I understand what the lady was conveying. To me the characteristics are the same:
-landline (so far)
-short message, sentence or two, breaks up if longer
-something that identifies the recently departed person by typical interest
-a voice that is identifiable
-a haunting (paranormal) feeling afterwards
-usually last goodbye - final call
