Polish term or phrase: głuchy telefon
Nie chodzi o zabawe, a sytuacje gdy dzwoni telefon i po podniesieniu słuchawki nikt się nie zgłasza. Podejrzewam, ze dead line odpada, gdyz to wskazuje na brak polaczenia. Ale moze sie myle? Prosze o propozycje.

Annoying "DEAD" calls are probably auto dialers. You're sitting down to dinner when the phone rings. You get up from the table, pick up the phone and say, "Hello?" On the other end of the line, you hear nothing. This has happened to you before, and too often. Are you being stalked? Is a burglar calling to find out what hours you're home? Is someone doing this to harass you?

I receive 15 to 20 dead calls a day from this number. Sometime I hear breathing and other noises on the other end.
