Hello ATS (and a weird experience I'd like to share)

I've been lurking on this site for a couple years now, and though I am not necessarily a "conspiracy theorist" in the usual sense, I thoroughly enjoy much of the content this site has to offer. I find it is mind-opening to look at things from outside the mainstream perspective, and honestly the more I read the more I find that the accepted dogma (as it concerns science, world events, and otherwise) has significant holes. I'm currently a student at a prominent California university, and I joined this site to share an odd experience with people who may be able to relate, so to speak.

A few years ago, I worked for a major retailer, and was on-call in the early morning. One night I awoke to the sound of my usual cell phone ringtone, and in the dim light I stood up to the side of my bed and picked the phone up off the nightstand. I remember distinctly assuming this was my job calling me in to work in the morning, but when I flipped open the phone to check the number, there was no number at all, only 12 (I think it was 12) apparently random letters, numbers, and symbols-- something like ?^8B*k$df#23. As soon as I put the phone to my ear, I remember feeling an extraordinary pain that totally consumed my head-- it was as if the phone shocked my head. I don't really have anything else to compare it to, other than to say the pain was similar to being smacked in the head with a heavy object, but with no real feeling of a point of impact. After that, I remember keeling over in the general direction of the bed, watching the floor rush up at me, but becoming completely unconscious before hitting anything.

The next morning I awoke in my bed, feeling basically normal, if not perhaps a bit more tired than usual and somewhat ill at ease because of the "experience." I checked the recent calls on my phone (which, if I recall correctly, was on my nightstand,) but I don't think there was a record of the call. Weirdly enough, I remember the "experience" vividly but I only foggily remember how I followed up on it that morning. I'd write the whole thing off as a dream, but NOTHING, during the experience, was out of place in my room-- down to the magazines on the floor, the pattern on my comforter, ANYTHING that I can recall. If it was a dream, I have NEVER had one that close to reality before or since.

So I've been wondering, why would a phone display a random code as the phone number in the first place? Has anyone else had this happen to them? I've googled this sort of experience, and I really can't find anything all that similar other than "manchurian candidate" type operations, but I seriously doubt the CIA uses high school students, and I didn't have an experience of missing time other than the few hours I was apparently asleep.

I figured I'd hand this one off to the specialists...

haha yes I believe my parents at the time did pay the bill. I did have service through AT&T however...

I know it sounds ridiculous hearing this from some random dude on a message board where it isn't unusual that someone puts up a video of lights on a hill and calls it a UFO... but seriously... what I described is exactly what happened.

I'm mostly just wondering how the heck I got a call on the caller ID screen that wasn't actually a number.

That's a pretty strange experience. It almost sounds like a Derren Brown trick. Have you done a google search to see if anyone else has reported something like this happening. You might find nothing, but you might find several cases of it.

BTW. Welcome To ATS. Look forward to your posts.
