The other night, I noticed my boyfriends phone vibrating here and there, not like it's on vibrate, but just the staticky noise (hum) that you usually get when you put the phone near the computer and it rings. This happened twice, however when I checked the phone (with his permission), there were no missed calls, no calls at all for the time frame that the phone was humming. Am I imagining things or is the phone off? Im not familiar with technology , so for those of you who are, is it possible that he was not getting hidden calls? I figure if the phone is off like that, he's hiding something. Any help, please..... don't phones say missed calls automatically if you don't pick up even if it's on silence? Oh and I had noticed lately that he isn't getting as many calls/ texts, but I figured that was becasue people (his women "friends") were busy for the holidays.......) thank-you

If his phone was not off, and there was no missed calls then you are imagining things or hearing things. Are you even sure it's his phone that is vibrating?

smart guy next good move is to lock it up or never leave it unattended around you.

to dating.

Would you prefer that he turn it off when you are not around?

If he allowed you to check it with his permission I don't understand the paranoia over it. If he completely turned it off around you I would consider that he was giving you his undivided attention. You can manipulate the situation either way.

Yikes. Not only do you check his messages and monitor whether he gets calls, but you worry that he is hiding something from you because his phone causes interference with your computer? This kind of distrust is going to tear the two of you apart.

I never--never--checked my ex's phone but he checked mine. Generalizations are so lame.

The phone is probably just communicating with the system. It's not unusual to get occasional interference through speakers with some phones; there doesn't necessarily have to be an incoming call.

Anyway, if he wants to hide conversations, all he has to do is keep another cell phone or two that you don't know about.

To the OP:

I don't even check my boyfriend's wallet, let alone his cellphone.

Time to let go. Or go yourself.

Additionally, if you read the OP's original post 'he gave her permission to check it.'
