Default [Q] phone automatically tried to dial 809 area code

to start off...I am unrooted, the phone has all of the official updates, and I only download applications from either the marketplace or via appbrain.

Today, I was listening to some audio the evo automagically dialed a 809 number (did a reverse lookup and it was to the Dominican Republic. no the phone number was not in the phone book)

obviously I must have something malicious installed.

I would like to track down application. I used apcat in order to try to search for the telephone number dialed in the log files.... but I dont understand what I am looking for...How do I find what application made the request to initiate a phone call?

my gut is telling me it is an application called rockplayer because I launched it earlier in the day to watch a flv ( ** for the first time** ) .... and I havent installed any applications in weeks... I have uninstalled it and there has been no problem since.


thanks for your time

Have you gone through your apps and looked at what permissions each one needs?

below I am listing from aSpotCat application which groups permissions of installed applications nicely:
"services that cost you money" came up with:


First Aid ( makes sense to use the phone app as it has a calling function)
Fring (cant do anything about)
google search (If I cant 'trust' google, well then I should throw out the evo!)
maps
sprint terminator (makes sense as it can use text messages to do functions)
Voice Search
Voicemail

doesnt look that bad???

Done.
Thanks for your input


Regarding log files:
Does the application that causes the launch of the phone leave a trace in the logfile?
