Phone News

Call from 777888999 Explodes your Phone? Its a Hoax & Fake News



Fake news and spam messages are almost every where now. Fake news is taking over the social media by storm and then later follows a hoard of spam messages on messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Messenger, etc. which can be a lot annoying at times. On the same lines, from the past couple of days, there’s a spam message that’s making rounds on the popular messaging app WhatsApp. You might have already heard about this or have already read this message forwarded in one of your groups. It is about receiving a cal from a number and your smartphone or phone blasting when you accept the call.

Yes, it is a thing now and it is totally making people go crazy over it. So this particular spam message says that if you get a phone all from a 9-digit number and if you receive it, then your smartphone will blast instantly upon receiving the call. And at the end of the message, it also says the standard, ‘Please forward this message and spread the news’. And the worst part is, a lot of people have been spreading the word and forwarding it since it says it is coming from a 9-digit number.

We all know that in India, we only have 10-digit mobile numbers. If anyone buys a new SIM card, the number which he/ she is going to get is going to be a 10-digit number. So, in this case, a lot of people are actually freaking out about it. But if you think about it, this doesn’t really make a lot of sense. Firstly, you might have seen this in movies where a phone call can blast your phone. But technically, we all know that it is not possible in real world. There is no way that a phone can blast when you receive a phone call.

Yes, there have been incidents in the past, where smartphones have exploded but they were mostly due to some kind of a fault in the device or the battery. And Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a great example of that. But this message doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. So this is nothing more than just a spam message/ fake news or anything that you want to call it. And we highly suggest you that stop falling for such fake news and spam messages. Don’t spread such news unless and until you really know that it is true or unless and until you have done a good amount of research on it.

Having said that, we would like to know your thoughts on this. Have you received that message and if you did, then what did you do? Let us know by dropping a comment down below and also, stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info like this.
