[FIXED] Dead sims contacting the living via phone

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? Latest
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except barckyard, spooky and first pet
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the game, I guess
What happens when the bug occurs? Dead sims continue to phone up living sims, 6 to 7 times a day PER sim in the household.
What do you expect to see? Dead sims NOT contacting the living via phone.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add a block feature for a sim to to be able to phone or text or just STOP dead sims from having phones or calling.

 

PLEASE. My current families dead father phones each sim in my house hold multiple times a day, it’s utterly mad.

 

Please fix it. Please.

Ghosts will no longer be obsessively calling you 5-ish times a day to see if you want to come over and hang out. They’ve been working on their self-control and are limited to at most one call per day now.

Fixed in Patch 1.52.100

 

 

It's not gone but they toned it down. Guess if you have further issues with ghost sending messages, open a feedback thread at the officials. 

 

This is officially considered fixed.

I have also seen this in my game and it's just plain weird. I'd like to see this fixed as well.

Just to be sure, these aren't ghosts that are living in households ?

Also, do they continue to do so after they faded away/were sent to the netherworld ?

In my game they aren't ghosts from my active household they're ghosts from different households, people who are friends with my current household and have passed away. Once the spirit fades away the phone calls stop for me.

No they stop once the ghost sim has been banished. He is not in my active household either, I have a cemetery generic lot were I keep all my graves and he’s there. 

 

I don’t mind the phone calls but he’s dead, ghosts shouldn’t be able to call at all it really breaks immersion.

Wait this wasn't intentional?!

Now for real.
I've had my sims 4 game for around 2 years and it's been there from the day I got it (pretty sure anyway)
Always thought it was strange, but maybe intentional - opportunities so we can move the ghosts in our households in case we want to ressurect them? 

Would love to see it fixed as well - if it is a glitch anyway. Or at least an option to turn this off.

yeah, this has been happening for ages in my game but it never bothered me so I never reported it.
