Every night at around 11:00pm EST my phone line gets momentarily activated like someone picks up a handset.
I only have a cordless setup with one base and two remote handsets.
I have changed the frequency that the handsets use several times so I don't believe it's any interferance from a neighbor, plus it happens only once at around the same time every night.
Is there such a thing as phone line phishing?
I did have my DSL router hacked into once.
I have a cordless landline phone base and two remote hand sets in my house, no other landline phones.
When ever a handset is turned on (to get a dial tone) to make a call the base makes a clicking sound.
The base has always made the clicking sound ever since I bought the cordless unit over 3 years ago.
Every night within a 15 minute window at around 11:00pm my cordless phone base makes the same clicking sound and I know no-one in the house is using the phone. This started occuring about three months ago.
As previously mention I have changed the frequency channel assigned to the units thinking maybe a neighbors phone was interferring on the same channel but that hasn't made a difference.
If I unplug the cordless base (power and phone cord) then obviously I would not hear anything and I cannot be sure that nothing is occuring with with phone line.
I'm at a loss as to what could be causing this.
I'm not at my residence now but will provide the make and model number later this evening.
I will disconnect just the phone line a few minutes before the time range that the clicking normally occurs and listen for what if anything happens and will let you know the results.
