  1. Just loading a new phone and noticed I have at least 3 people's numbers who are no longer with us

    One of them rang :eek:

    I hung up sharpish

    How many have you got ?

  4. None, I still have my dead brother as a friend on Facebook though.
     
  5. Just my Mam and Dad's - I won't delete them either.

    After about 6 months, unused numbers get recycled.

    There have been cases where people have sent SMS messages to dead friends/relatives and then one day, they started to get replies!

    Not many, I delete them as I go. Only a few left on the list now.

    One, got a notification they had left our whatsapp groups about a year after they died. :(

    name has left the group/conversation.

    Something like that anyway.
    Guessing their number had just gone back into the pool or been taken out of commission.

    None on my phone.

    Got dead people still on Facebook. One was a woman I became friends with as we both were pregnant with our daughters at the same time. She passed away a few years back due to breast cancer. Her family occasionally put pictures of her daughter on and it's nice to see how she's growing up.

    Deleted a couple from our house phone the other night and just checked my mobile and had to delete it from there too.
    Bit depressing really, but the sad fact is they won't be calling you again.

    None. For removal of establishing motive and evidence purposes.

    It happened to my sister, but she got the message from B-i-L's phone without texting him.

    If it helps, you can still talk to them. You don't even need to pick up your phone

    There was a family from South Shields I think the other year were texting their dead Nana who then replied 3 years after she was buried saying "I'm watching over you"

    Quite often do when i`m driving, working, generally stressed to fuck :oops:

    Out of daftness and inspired by this thread i`ve just googled on of the numbers for daftness, turns out its now some committee member of a local WI. Which is quite nice really as its something they both were involved with
