      Perhaps you should try withholding your number and calling from another phone to check whether anonymous call rejection is still in effect on your home phone line.

      Already tried that and my line is refusing withheld ID calls.

      Could have been a BT test call. They often run an automated line test during the night to test groups of numbers. Ring current is not normally sent during these tests but a mechanical bell often "tings" when the line is seized. Not sure what effect this would have on an electronic ringer.
