Was my smartphone intercepted or hacked?

For last three consecutive days, when I make a mobile-to-mobile international phone call, the conversation hung-up after few minutes and the entire conversation of my recipient is repeated (like it would be taped). The recipient in this period hear only the connection waiting signal. This is first time I experienced it using various smartphones for last 12 years. How it can happen? Does it mean that my conversation was intercepted/hacked?

    Probably no. As this is an international call, tower/signal related problems might be there. You can check/ clear your doubts, just switch off your phone and again switch on and observe if there any malfunctioning happens on your phone like very slow start/additional addons/plugins installed without your knowledge etc.etc. For safe, you can change all passwords of your phone including email account with complex ones.

    One more thing, don't try to install any type of anti virus/optimization tool. Any smart phone (Android/iOS/Windows) has such a built-in mechanism that can help to prevent that types of viruses. Yes, it is better that try to avoid fund/money transfer from your smartphone.
