Personal phone number being used by someone else

I am very curious how this is even possible. So me and my friend were together and gets a phone call and the phone call is apparently by me the thing is I never called him my phone was actually off (battery died) in the exact moment of the call. I am curious is there applications or programs that can do such things using my number and calling that person (on his screen it showed miss called my name and the same exact number I had). I later find out this person did it how is that even possible. The person is in the family plan to my close friend so he monitored the phones calls and knows my number I am just curious how he ported the call with my number.

That's what all the annoying telemarketers and robocallers use these days.

This is pretty scary man just freaked me out because it showed my name (has me as a contact) and made me go wow like I didn't call I was assuming my phone glitched and called, but no it was that person because he admitted it. So I assume there is applications?
