Why is my number showing up on the call logs of people I didn't call?

I just received a text from a person I don't know saying that I called her phone, and she wanted to know why.  I explained that I haven't touched my phone all morning and that I don't know who she is, and I didn't call her. She then sent me a picture of her call log and sure it enough it showed that I called her.  Thing is my phone was sitting on my desk at work, and I've been sitting here all morning. I haven't used my phone at all.  Is anyone else having this issue with somehow your number showing up on people's phones that you called when you didn't?  Nothing shows in my call history that I called the number.  I'm really confused and want to know if there is something that I need to do so this doesn't happen again. I have a Kyocera Brigadier.

Possibly someone is spoofing your number?

sounds like suzyq may be right. there are apps that you can choose your phone number and that is what shows up on the caller id of the other line. That would be the only way really.

That happened to me 5 years ago.  You got spoofed.  Someone is using your number to try to get something from the people they are calling.  I was told there was nothing I could do about it but change my number.  Now I have a new number and I hate it. I'm getting calls for the person who used own this number and her name shows up on other caller ID.
