Need your help, /x/. Last night, at about 23:00EST (11pm), I received a phone call from a number I had never been called from before. The message comes from a number in Atlanta, GA (407 area code) and I do not know anyone down there and have never received a call from that area code before.
The problem is that the message is 00:04:00 long and sounds like it's from a somewhat muffled phone, possibly in a pocket. The entire message has beeping at a regular interval, high-pitched. The first 5 beeps play, then the next 5 beeps sound like they are in reverse. Then the pattern repeats, no change in timing, no stopping. Occasionally, there's a muffled screaming sound, sounding like a female voice. There is some random muffled sound like that of movement, someone hitting the phone on something or something being hit against something else. There sounds like a male voice in there, but nothing is clear enough to make out.
Did anyone else get anything like this before?
I'm hesitant to do so since I am not sure if this was an intentional call or not. Also, the content of the voicemail message is questionable. If there really is something nefarious going on, I certainly don't want to exacerbate the situation if the caller was a lurker of this board.
someone probably forgot to lock their phone, put it in their pocket r bag and it's accidentally dialled yor number. Then when voicemail has kicked in, someone else has tried to contact the phone that's calling you and you get them beep things to notify you that someone else is trying to call.
Sure, that's what I was thinking, too, but I don't know who it was- I live in the NE of the country.
I'm trying to get the file together to have you folks listen to it, though. Gonna take me a few to figure it out.
just take an aux cable from the headphone out of your phone, plug it into the mic input of your pc/laptop and then record it with audacity or that sound recorded in windows accessories.
if you can do that then I'll clear the audio up in one of my DAW's and see if I can hear things a little clearer.
It seems like a failed attempt of a sos morse code by dialing the numbers. My theory is that someone is in trouble and he/she dialed a random number cause his/hers hands ar tied or somethin.>>15758281
I'm at work again, gotta wait until I get home some time tomorrow before I can find a service to post the file to.
I'm glad that I'm not the only one who finds this voicemail strange.
wow that sounded pretty fucking spoopy. the screaming sounds like it comes from a partially closed mouth, like taped or something. wouldn't it be possible to isolate and kill the frequencies of the truck's beeping and try to enhance the other ones? Shouldn't be harder than removing the vocals from a song with an equalizer if you know what you're doing. If I were you, I'd ask /mu/ for some help.
After listening to it, I'm convinced that there's only one explanation
Okay, track is now downloadable. If anyone here has the know-how to filter through some of the sounds in order to get a better idea of what's going on, please feel free to do so.
Sounds to me like a garbage truck. Also the 'screaming sound' sounds like mechanical arms going up or down, like the ones that grab on to the trash can to dump it. Also the 'gunshot' sounds like somebody dropped either their phone or something they were holding onto a counter.
It doesn't really sound like anything strange is going on in the voicemail. I'm gonna' go with it's a butt dial.
some kid playing with a phone? sounds like it is running around in the house. the beeping sound.. not sure about this.
at 1:22 someone is picking up the phone.
some babbling. then running. another phone vibrating?
The beeping noise.. could this be a fire alarm?
just post the number,OP.
Consider how bullshit it is that the voicemail lasts exactly 4 hours (tho ive known people who's phone automatically hang up after four hours)
HOWEVER a VOICEMAIL lasting four hours? The person would need tp keep pressing a number ( 2 on mine) to extend the voicemail that muthafucking long.
ALSO consider the bullshit factor that this person didnt check their phone for that long (in this society? Doubt it)
Fuck you. Seriously, why the fuck are you here? You thik that's fucking funny?
