Analysis: Don't panic, it's a hoax.
Variants of the so-called "death call" warning first appeared on April 13, 2007 (Friday the 13th) in Pakistan, where they caused widespread panic and inspired a slew of ancillary rumors, such as the claim that the phone calls, if listened to, could also cause impotence in men and pregnancy in women. Pakistanis were heard trading secondhand stories of actual deaths that had occurred, some claiming they were the handiwork of ancestral spirits enraged by the construction of a cell phone tower over a graveyard.


Government officials and mobile phone providers issued statements challenging the truth of the rumors in an effort to quell the panic, but, just as they began to subside in Pakistan, similar emails began to spread throughout India, the Middle East, and Africa. MTN Areeba, the largest cellular network in Ghana, released a statement echoing the assurances made by other providers: "A full scale national and international priority investigation has been conducted in the last 48 hours," a spokesperson said. "The investigation has confirmed that these rumours are completely unsubstantiated and have no technological evidence to support them."

According to engineers, cell phones are incapable of emitting sound frequencies that can cause immediate physical injury or death.
