While I was driving, I voice activated my phone to "call my dad" and I handed my daughter behind me my phone to talk to grandpa. At some point th connection dropped. Next I hear my four year old using the voice control and says "call my dad", sure enough, she reconnected to my dad.

1. I didn't know she knew how to activate the voice control (double click home button) but she had enough exposure to other phones/tablets to know to try it.

2. She was four.

3. Somehow I expected my phone to call itself :P

Amen. Got a Cat S50 I can't root for the life of me. I need root to remotely help my grandfather who accidentally presses buttons all the time. I got him a great water proof drop proof old age proof phone, but the gas and mileage of physically driving 100 miles to press a stupid button is getting on my nerves!

You are making the assumption they are all tuned into the same frequencies.

Imagine you get 100 people into a room and their teeth pick up radio signals, some AM, some FM. What one person hears will be different from the next one.

Yes it's a mental disease, but like any other, there are reasons pro's/con's why it happens and how.
