How come my home phone and cell phone ring at the same time?

by on April 30, 2010

Q: Some how my land line and cell phone sometimes ring at the same time. One time I would think was just a coincidence but it has been happening at least once every few days for the past couple weeks. The two numbers have never been associated with one another such as forwarding etc. They both ring at the exact same time and my cell shows a private number but my land line phone is just a regular call like family or friends. This only happens randomly and not for every single call to the land line phone. How is this possible? Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Try doing some debugging.

    Have a friend use their cell phone, and have them dial your home number and see what happens. Then have them dial your cell phone number. Odds are dialing either just the cell or the land line will cause both to ring.

    If calling the cell phone causes both to ring, contact your cell phone provider.

    If calling the land line causes both to ring, contact your land line provider.
