    Hi can some help I opened Siri to put a note in Calendar and she rang my friends number in Australia and I could not find how to stop it quickly. Just lost most my credit. What do I do to stop this...

    I'd take the number out of Contacts so it wasn't there for Siri to call. At worst, if Siri tried to do it again the call would be FaceTime Audio.

    If you intend to call the number from your iPhone any time, you can put it in Notes where Siri can't get at it and all you have to do is tap the number to make the call.

    I just checked Siri in settings and it wasn't even on. Yet she spoke when it happened and said calling and said friends name. Don't know what's going on. Your idea might be the only way.

    I meant the Notes app. If you put a phone number into a note, it becomes clickable once you leave edit mode.

    I'm not sure whether the Notes field in Contacts will do the same. Worth trying, I guess, though maybe not with an international number.

    EDIT: Just tried it. Phone numbers in the Note field of Contacts are not clickable.
