Im on the phone right now with tigerdirect, every time I go into hold I hear several people talking, carrying on conversations that have nothing to do with the place I am calling. I first hung up the phone thinking someone was using it, but noone is.

So I call back, im on hold and I hear it again. I hear two women talking and she says "wow I really cannot believe it, I found my dream home......$100,000..... and the other women says something.

When the people at tigerdirect finally answer they could hear it for a second or two and then it stopped on both of our lines.

He goes to talk to his manager and puts me on hold, again I hear another women but it goes something like " Yeah what the fuck....."

Again the guy answers and says he heard it to.

So WTF? Ghosts coming through?

They couldnt hear me.

I just yelled that I was being stabbed, either they didnt care, or didnt hear me.

almost sounds like a party line, retro baby, retro . when I was a kid we had party lines, no it's not that kind of "party" you young punks (anybody under the age of 45) are thinking of. i t was one telephone line where a few phones were connected to, and you shared that one line. if you wanted to make a call and another party was on it, the other party had to get off the line so you could make the call. or if you were nosey, you could listen to other people's conversations.

But why doesnt it only happen when I'm on hold and the shitty music is playing, and within 3 seconds of being taken off of hold it goes away?

We have had this phone for 5 years and never had this occur before

Sounds like something in their phone system. If you are hearing it on all calls sounds like the line is crossed. Call your provider and have them test the line. It only takes one squirrel bite and a bit of rain or a terminal full of ants to make for a long day for the telephone repairman.
