Misdialed call

A misdialed call or wrong number is a telephone call to an incorrect telephone number. This may occur because the number has been physically misdialled, the number is simply incorrect, or because the area code or ownership of the number has changed. In North America, toll-free numbers are a frequent source of wrong numbers because they often have a history of prior ownership. In the United Kingdom, many misdialled calls have been due to public confusion over the dialing codes for some areas.

Pocket dialing

Pocket dialing refers to the accidental placement of a phone call while a persons mobile phone or cordless phone is in the owners pocket or handbag. The recipient of the call typically hears random background noise when answering the phone. If the caller remains unaware, the recipient will sometimes overhear whatever is happening in the callers vicinity. A pocket-dialed call can continue for many minutes, or until the recipients voice mail system ends the call. The phrase "pocket dial" was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in August 2015.
