    humm, so where do i put this then. i'll just put it here, and you can move it where its more appropriate.

    what could cause the cellphone to ring like that?
    are there any cellphones with a "spam calls to certain people on your cellphone"
    feature?
    i'd say the cellphone could have stopped ringing because the battery went flat.

    and another discussion on it:

    5 possibilities



    1. HE'S A GHOOOOST... seriously, perhaps whatever electrical energy left in his dying cerebral circuitry was powerful enough to either continue moving the hand and ring the phone or activate the phone telekinetically


    2. the TOD is wrong and he was in fact alive and ringing for help/calling loved ones before his demise (TOD can be miles out given certain physical conditions, some of which are possible in a traincrash


    3. someone else alive found his phone and began calling people from the contacts list for help, it would explain why there was no phone


    4. the calls were placed shortly before the crash and got 'caught up' in the satalite networks and slowly bled through to their destinations over 11 hours, alternatively he only sent one call to each person, perhaps with a premonition of impending doom, and a glitch in the networks caused it to get caught up and duplicated multiple times (hence the static on answering)


    5. a stray electrical wire fell onto the phone during/after the crash, the electricity would mess up the phone and potentially place repeated calls

    #2. the search crew couldn't find his mobile phone. if he had been calling the mobile phone should have been in, or near his hand.

    #3: could be. although it was only family members who received calls, and all the calls were traced to the trainwreck. but then again, it wasn't a very big train.
    maybe he was talking to one of his fellow passengers about his family and loved ones, they picked up his phone and started calling.. maybe.

    #4:could be. any details on how this could happend, or has this happened before, with damaged cellphones, or networks?
    #5:dunno, maybe.

    here's some pics of the trainwreck:





    this is a "recreation" of the train crash.

    Maybe it had a voice feature, and kept misinterpreting the things being said around it?

    Maybe it was an elaborate prank?

    Since they never found the phone, the glaringly obvious explanation is that someone else had it and was dialing people in the phone's directory. Perhaps they only heard static because the phone's microphone was damaged in the crash or something. If it had actually been him (or anyone else) alive in the wreckage with the phone, I would assume he would dial 911 rather than friends and family. Even if you wanted to use a "he's a ghost!" explanation, that wouldn't explain why the cell phone was missing.

    I think that when you get feedback on your cell, you hear your voice slightly after you speak, is an example of this
