Phone randomly talking about cars

  cleveridea 23:58 18 Oct 2015

My grandma's phone has been randomly talking sometimes, while listening to it, it sounds like a car help playlist, talking about drunk driving, brake fluid replacement, tires. I went through the running processes and nothing there that would just start playing randomly.

Her phone is a galaxy S4, latest version of android. I've never heard of this problem before, so I wasn't quite sure what to do. I scanned her phone w/ avast, nothing was found. No video player app was currently running in the background, nor did any start up after a restart. Anyone else ever have this problem?

Have you considered doing a factory reset just in case you missed something.

This sort of problem is not unknown. Our local plumber use to have problems of third party interference, when he was talking to his customer's.

I think in the end, he contacted the service provider and the phone manufacturer, and the problem was resolved.
