Anything odd on our phone line in the early hours?

Just wondering if you guys at PN have picked up anything strange on our phone line this morning at approx 1am?
Reason I ask is both the cordless phones went into page mode - something triggered the base station to page them both. It's been going on randomly for ages but I never before thought that maybe the router/filter/line could have something to do with it.
Anything detected at the PN end?

When I was with BT in my flat the phone would "chirp" in the middle of the night, not every night but often enough to be an annoyance. It turned out that BT did polling line tests over night and my phone was cheap and nasty and it reacted to the pulse and started to ring and then stopped.

That sounds like a very likely issue then. How did you find out about it Steve and how can we check if this is whats happening to us?

I can't remember. I think I ended up phoning BT and talking to them. But it was quite a while ago now.
