 I don't even have a phone attached to my phone jack. I use my phone line for DSL only. What the heck is going on here? I am cancelling my land line and DSL because I don't need police at my door with the neighbors watching over...what? Wierd. Anyone else have this happen?

I've seen it happen a few times. Sometimes when there is a short circuit on the line it somehow dialed 911 or if an old house alarm is set to dial 911, Very rare but has occasionally happened.
