Receiving strange calls/pocket dialing


Receiving strange calls/pocket dialing

I have tried to research this on the web but cound't seem to get any direct hit on AT&T wireless.  In any event, here is what's happening the past two weeks.  On the weekend I average received about 10 phone calls from people all of the US.  During the weekdays the calls reduced down to a couple and then everything went back to normal.  The 2nd weekend the calls returns and just this past weekend including Monday same thing.   Prior to posting this msg, I got 6 calls in 6 minutes all from different numbers.  Some calls dropped after just a couple rings and some calls actually went to my voice mail where I can actually listen to the background conversation. 


After my first episode, I contacted AT&T a handful times and the situation was being look at by the Urgent Care departement in KY.  Few days later, the rep called me and told me they had identified the issue and it was some technical malfunction at the switching board center.  I don't know what that is and simply don't care.  My question to him was to confirmed the problem and if they are going to resolve it.  Of course, they told me what I wanted to hear but the problem persist and escalated during the weekend. 


I am just curious if anyone has experienced this?  I am ready to move to another carrier and potentially filing a complaint against AT&T.  Receiving phone calls like this in the middle of the night and throughout the days are starting to get to me!

That is definitely an odd issue and not one I've seen before.
