Mysterious call on hold preempts all music and HVAC

So the myLink annoyances continue, but this one is not so minor. Starting a day or two, every time I start my Volt I first get whatever I was last listening to. But very quickly as my phone connects, the music stops and HVAC level goes way down like I'm receiving a call. And who am I calling, you ask?

Apparently.... me.

And I guess I'm on hold. It seems like they could at least offer me some hold music.

But when you click on my call, it turns out I'm not really on hold:

You can try to end the call, and the count-up time will stop, but nothing else changes. You're still locked out of music and HVAC.

The only way I've found to fix it is to start streaming music from my phone. This "ends the call," and I can then switch to whatever source I want.

Did I mention the car is doing this 100% of the time? Ugh. Anybody else experienced this? I'm using an iPhone 6 with latest software (9.3.2 if memory serves). Volt is a Dec 2016 buid.

Yes, It happened to me just as you have described,,,drove me crazy too !
My 2014 volt and my iphone5s,,,,, this works:
turn off Bluetooth in the "Settings" menu on your iphone before entering the car. Practice this procedure for a couple of days,,,,the "normal" screen functions will be resored (you will stop calling yourself).
When it appears that everything is back to "Normal",,,,turn on the phones Bluetooth and hope it and the car don't start up their private relationship with each other.
I believed this happened a second time but turning the phones bluetooth setting off for a couple of days fixed the problem and it never happened again ! The "WHY" remains a mystery.
Good Luck !!!
