Have any of you had, or know somebody who has, experienced phone calls from the grave?

Over the years, there have been many reports of people receiving mysterious phone calls from deceased relatives, friends etc.

No, I haven't. Just read a book by Mitch Albom, "The First Phone Call From Heaven" which he calls a novel. I couldn't put the book down. It was so believable! I loved it.

You should talk to Leeann Wilber of the Borden Bed & Breakfast. There's a spirit there that likes to play with phones, even cell phones.
Apparitions are often confused with hauntings. The difference is that apparitions are "live" (intelligent consciousness) and hauntings are "recordings."- LOYD AUERBACH, interview

I have never experienced this myself but some of my friends claim that when they ring my home number that sometimes it gets picked up and there is no one on the other end. Of course I have tried to ring my own number when I am out but it has never happened to me yet.
On a side note my late grandmother had a friend who passed away and she tried to ring up her friends husband but she got the answer machine instead. It was the voice of her dead friend saying no one was in. Not a ghost but it did give her a bit of a scare.

Yes. My cousin was murdered several years ago, right after she died several people in the family started receiving strange phone calls. My aunt as a answering machine tape that very clearly is my cousins voice saying "mom". This call and recording was several weeks after my cousin's death.

I had this happen to me when I was a teenager. It was my grandmother's voice on the other end.

There have been several accounts of this happening, my son has had one that was extremely odd. I know a couple others who think this may have happened to them also. It is a very good possibility it does.

I never had the traditional "phone call from the grave," where it was an actual phone call...but I had a dream once that was so lucid and natural that I cannot help but wonder if there might have been a little more than just my subconscious at work.

This happened a little over 10 years ago. I had a very lucid and vivid dream that my uncle, who had just passed in real life, called. I saw his name on the caller ID and I answered it. In my dream, I KNEW he was dead, but it didn't seem odd that he was calling, lol. He addressed me in the way he always did, and asked to speak with my mom. When I told him that she wasn't home, he made me promise to give her a message. His voice took an urgent tone as he said, "Tell her she needs to go get Mozart. Mozart needs her!" I promised I'd pass on the message and hung up. For whatever reason, I didn't tell my mom about the dream right away.

Mozart was my uncle's beloved cat. Unbeknownst to me, at least on a conscious level, before my uncle had died, he made my mom promise that if anything ever happened to him, he wanted her to take his cat. He even left a substantial sum in his will for Mozart's care. At the time of my dream, my uncle's estate was still being processed. We would go over to his house and feed the cat and check on him a couple of times a day, and when my uncle's daughter arrived to start going through stuff, she took over the cat duties. It was my impression that as soon as all that was over, we were bringing Mozart home. That's all I knew at the time. I had no idea about the promise my mom made to take the cat.

A couple of days after I had the dream, I asked my mom how much longer it would be before Mozart would be coming home and she broke down. She explained that a couple of days before (I guess when I had the dream) that my uncle's daughter refused to let us have the cat. My mom tried to explain that she didn't care about the money and that she could keep the money, but she had promised that we'd take care of the cat. She still refused.

I know that its very possible that I overheard my mom talking about this and didn't realize it and that's why I had the dream...or maybe I just put two and two together since we were no longer even needed to go over and feed the cat. But, the dream just had such a strange, non-dream feel to it that whenever I think about phantom phone calls, I have to stop and wonder if my uncle tried to reach out to me through a medium where he knew I wouldn't be scared, lol.

And on a completely unrelated note...I have no idea WHAT it was, prank or issue with the phone company or what...but several years ago when we still had our land line, we were getting some weird calls late at night on a regular basis from local businesses! The local SUBWAY restaurant apparently called us and when I answered, all I could hear was country music playing in the background...not like a recording, but like it was actually in the background as someone had the phone off the cradle. Another call came in from a local Exxon gas station and was nothing but static, but it sounded like someone actually clicked the phone down to hang up. After receiving several calls from BOTH of these businesses at about the time they were supposed to be closed, I would start jumping in the car and racing down there (my town isn't that big). I never found any evidence that anyone was still in the building when I got there. It happened over a period of about a month, and would only happen when I was either home alone, or my boyfriend was spending the night.

Not a phone call from beyond the grave, but a strange coicidence that involved a phone call. When I was very little, maybe 2 years old nearly all of my family loaded up in car and started driving from Kentucky to visit my grandfather brothers in Iowa and Idaho, with stops the way to visit other family in the Dakotas, Montana, etc. Right before we left one of my dads friends was diagnosed with cancer. His prognosis was good.
He took his first round of treatments right after we left. Several days into the trip something odd happened. We had stopped for gas in some random place, all of us was out stretching our legs when the pay phone rang. My dad walked over, answered the pay phone and it was the wife of his friend. His friend had had a bad reaction to treatment and had passed away. Dad hung up the phone and told us all the news, then it dawned on him, and the rest of the adults in the group. How did this woman know where to reach us? When we got back dad asked her how she got the number to that payphone in that random little town several states away and she said that she had opened her address book to call and on a slip of paper in the address book was my dads name, the word vacation and that phone number.

When I was a kid this was possible. We had a 15 minute limit on the phone so the dead had a chance to get a word in edgewise.
These days the kids spend so much time phoning and texting people they just talked to 10 minutes ago that I'm sure, Like the rest of us, the dead have just given up.

LOL! I'm waiting for my deceased brother to do that, CaveRat; he's being inconsiderate.

I have to share this with you guys
My friend whom I work with told me of how yesterday, the hospital rang up his 76yr old mother asking how she was because she had been through an illness. Nothing odd you say? but they rang his mother because they say her husband rang them to check up on her. The problem is that he has been dead for three years now.

Not that it amounted to a hill of beans, but ol' Tom Edison was working on a phone to call the other side. Guess it would have been a collect call....
