Cellular Phones/Own number showing up on cell phone bill


My wife and I have ATT for a provider, I am away for 6 months and all of sudden phone calls are showing up on our bill from HER OWN NUMBER. Now I know about VM checking and all that but calls are lasting 25m mins, 36 mins, 11 mins etc.. what are the other possible options for what is going on here? You can be candid don't sugar coat anything thanks!

Any help would be great!

The calls that you see on your bill that show your number are ones where typically the caller ID is not available . I wouldn't be concerned that this is someone getting a hold of your number or anything like that. It's actually very common on an invoice. I wouldn't worry. Hope this helps. Thanks.
