A couple of times this week I have dialed people in my contact list, only to hear a different voice on the other end of the line (reaches a wrong number). I don't dial the wrong number, because I go directly to my contact list. When I immediately try again, everything is fine.

What could be happening?

Are you sure you are choosing the right contact? I've had it happen where I meant to dial #32 but hit #33. When you have an error go back into your "Dialed" list and make sure you hit the right one.

I have had the same thing happen, but only on about two ocassions that I can remember.

The persons who answered were not even IN my contact list... The number dialed on my phone indicated the correct number that I was trying to reach, but I didn't even know the party that actually answered...

Must be an ocassional hiccup at the cell tower or switching station is my only guess...

I agree with Lyndel,
This is almost certainly some kind of network error.

This has happened to my wife a few times. It only happens with one dialed number, but the call has actually been routed to several different wrong numbers. No one seems to be able to come up with an explanation, but they suggested that, since it only occurs with one number, they might be able to track it down.

The more complicated technology gets, the more often stuff like this seems to occur.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

Exactly, they were not in my contact list either. Very odd.
