There is possibly no conspiracy here but I thought it would be worth posting in case it had happened to anyone else or has been mentioned before.
Last night the wife and I had a friend round for dinner and at around 7pm the land line rang. The caller ID said 'Withheld' and I answered. There
was nobody on the other end so after a couple of 'hello's' I hung up by pressing the red button and put the phone back in it's base. we carried on
chatting and went to bed about 11pm (minus the friend :lol
. The phone didn't ring again after the last call and no outgoing calls were made.
This morning we got up as usual about 7am and we were eating breakfast at around 8am when my wife noticed the green light flashing. She picked it up
and showed me the screen with a shocked look on her face. It said 'Private number' - Duration 13:06:27 and was still counting. We hung up.
I don't know how this could have happened because the last call we had was 'withheld' so if we had not hung up properly, it still would have said
that. There were no more calls last night so how a private number had been active with the phone in it's base for 13 hours, I have no idea. Could
this be a method of listening in by someone or is there a more likely explanation?
For the record, this is the phone we have -
