Crossed lines??

  Fateful Shadow 09:45 14 Aug 04

Everytime I dial up onto the Internet (yes, I'm still on 56k :P) I keep hearing voices before the dialing starts. No-one is on the phone, and I can't understand what is going on.

Could it be that a phone call has crossed with my line somehow, and has anyone else had this?

Thanks :)

Yes, could be 'overhearing', not a crossed line as such, just induction. Pick up a phone and dial 1 to break dial tone.

It could be crosstalk as Graham ® says, it could also be pickup from a nearby radio transmitter.
