* At the end of the first arc of ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[spoiler:Natsuhi, Battler, George, and Jessica]] are holed up in Kinzo's study. The phone lines have been cut, as they discovered some time before when attempting to contact the police. While they're all sitting there in tense silence, all of a sudden, the phone rings. One of them goes over and picks it up... and all they hear is Maria singing [[CreepyChild creepily]] in the distance.

*** And then spoofed to hell in ''ScaryMovie 3''. Aside from the Evil Phone getting dragged into actual conversations, it tries to contact the female protagonist's son and gets her instead, gets hung up on, calls back and poses as a solicitor, and then finally asks her to take a message for him.

Added DiffLines:

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TalesFromTheCryptkeeper'' a crank caller, in a form of karmic comeuppance, ends up crank-calling a seemingly kindly old lady who turns his phone into one. No matter what he does to his phone she'll just keep calling him over and over insisting "but you called ''me''", and if he goes elsewhere ''any'' phone he comes within range of will ring for him with her on the other end. Needless to say, things [[FromBadToWorse get a hell of a lot worse]] when he goes to her home to apologise.

* The ''SCPFoundation'' has a chilling example in the form of [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-145 SCP-145,]] otherwise known as the "Man-Absorbing Phone". It constantly rings despite not being plugged to anything. Picking the phone up results in conversation with a woman pleading for help as she details gruesome acts of torture performed on unknown victims - and if you just so happen to be alone when you pick up the phone, ''[[NightmareFuel you're going to be joining the victims yourself]]''.

* In VideoGame/CryOfFear, your phone is mainly used as a flashlight in the game (which is always night). However, it's also used to [[spoiler:lure Simon into the dark, abomination filled apartments through a series of text messages]].
