Default mysterious phone charges

I have a Sprint Android phone with International calling. I did use the phone a couple times knowing completely well that I would be whacked for $3 a minute.

I tried using it a few times early in my cruise and found that the call would drop usually in under 30 seconds. When I could connect, the reception was terrible. So I stopped using the phone except when I was in a port and had a good signal. When my bill came around, I started reviewing it and saw that there were 6 incoming calls of 1 minute each from the ship the day before I reached the port. There were also 2 incoming calls that I supposedly answered between 1 and 2 AM the day befor that.

This of course made me suspicious of every call that was logged because I knew for a fact that the last 8 calls were 100% completely bogus. I called Sprint to discuss it and they are looking into the matter but it seems someone is trying to hose me for $50 or so for no reason at all.

Anybody else have this happen to them?
