Why does your voice sound higher over the telephone?

This is something I have wondered for a long time.

    The frequency range of the average phone is 300 to 3000 hz. It shouldn't really sound higher, just some of the lows get filtered out...

    Because frequencies below 300Hz are filtered out.
