I have a question that I have (so far) not been able to find an answer to:
My cordless phone (landline) has started showing that it is 'in use' several times a day and night. It first caught my eye about 6 weeks ago and it
is happening regularly. It usually happens once in the morning before 9 a.m. then midafternoon, 3-ish. I notice that now it is happening at about 8
p.m., 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.. Never precisely on the dot, but a few minutes after or before the hour.
What is the cause of this? I have tried to google and see if the phone companies do some kind of 'line open' checks, but I cannot find any info. I
am willing to believe that it may be something like this, but it is very odd that I have never noticed this before the past 6-8 weeks.
My cordless base sits underneath my television on my bedroom wall, which is directly opposite my bed. That makes it very noticeable when it blinks,
and I am just noticing this phenomenon. It blinks for 8 counts, or about 6 seconds. The other base is right at my left elbow as I sit here at my
computer desk, and I have seen it doing it, too.
It is starting to freak me out a little. Maybe I have just been so unobservant that I never noticed it before , even tho I have owned these phones
for 2 years now. They are located in the same places that they have always been.
I hope someone with better skills than me can give me a good answer about this. Otherwise, what the heck could it be?
Oh, and the phones are both v-tech dect 6.0 cordless phones, model no. cs6114. No bells, no whistles, not even an answering machine. And maybe this
is a weird forum for this, but I didn't know where else it would fit!
