Major Phone Bug Allows Anyone to Leave You a Voicemail

in Quickies by

A significant bug has been discovered in all phones and is currently a cause of frustration for 99% of people.

The bug allows you to call anyone, and if they don’t pick up, you can leave them a voice message which they will have to open at some point or see notifications for it every now and then.

Naturally, this poses a huge problem for anyone with a phone number.

“I keep missing calls from some old woman looking for her daughter,” says Tomas Petit, a 28-year-old Brooklyn-based programmer. “I’ve probably got at least two voicemails from her every week. It’s really fucking annoying.”

Although the phone rings like normal, if it’s not picked up, callers have the option to leave a thirty to sixty-second voicemail that just sits there until you listen to it. Worst of all, there is no way to either accept or deny voicemails on the participant’s side.

“How’s it make me feel? Pretty damn helpless to tell you the truth,” notes Stephanie Harriman, a 30-year-old real estate agent in Miami. “The voicemails don’t stop, no matter how hard you scream back at them.”

There is no telling how or when this glitch started, or when it will end.
