Strange Phone Call

When I got home today I could see that there had been a missed call to my phone line.  However, when I looked on my phone to see who it was from it gave my own phone number, this was confirmed by dialling 1471 - home can I possibly phone myself!  Is this something to do with the line being tested for whatever reason?

Re: Strange Phone Call

I have had that, also. IIRC it is an "SMS to voice" message (we do not have SMS capable (land-line) phones).
