Hello,

If there's a protective order you still can't talk to your wife. When there's an order in place, only the courts can make it go away. The parties cannot just decide to forgive each other because that can get you arrested for violating the order, and the fact that your wife invited you to violate the order by being the one to initiate some kind of contact with you, will not save you from an arrest and new charges.

Bring the phone call to the attention of your lawyer. He can contact the DA and the judge and perhaps get the order modified or lifted.
