Was I hacked, or what?
I was standing at my own door,and presumably with net access via wifi when my Android started screeching a dance music song at full volume. Someone thought it was a ringtone. I thought it was their phone.

Now I _never_ play music on that phone, and would hardly know how. The track does exist on the phone, buried in a collection of loser tunes copied on to be copied off at someone's wedding. There's no desktop icon for music on any screen - it's buried in the pack.

The phone is an ancient htc dream running CM-6.0 with some mods for less memory usage.

Brain fart in the old phone? Messer?

Might have triggered during a software update for some reason, but log into your account and make sure there are no changes or weird charges.

Genius Guess - except that there was no update

I'm putting it down to some brain fart in the old phone. It's challenged for memory, despite the fact that I gave it a generous swap partition. And it slows the cpu to 0.1hz and then tasks back up if you touch it.

The uptime was over a week - errors accumulate in ram(see above) and nothing ever gets read if it's in ram, so I'm putting it down to that. 1 reboot a week isn't bad.
