Default wireless interference

Many things can interfere with a wireless connection. A cordless phone, a microwave oven, a baby monitor.

You've identified it as the phone itself, solution would be to change physical phone to either a corded phone or a cordless that is NOT 2.4GHz range. leaving you with 900 MHz older tech or 5.8 Ghz newer tech.

NEW 5.8 GHz cordless phones: are they better than 2.4 GHz? is a good explanation of the frequencies so you can decide. As they state in the article, if you're buying it to deal with interference make sure you get a full 5.8GHz phone not a dual-mode that can give you better battery life but will still use the 2.4GHz and interfere potentially.

I have had this issue once, the best way i found around it (usually it's a 2.4GHz phone and a router which shares the signal) switch your phones to a channel above 12 if possible, then switch your router from the standard 6, to channel 11. This channel i usually reserved for specific devices (not portable phones), that the average person does not own.
To be honest i have done some research on this, and the first 6 channels on your router have different numbers, but emit the same frequency.. atleast close enough as to not matter. Channel 1-6, 7, and 11 all have reasonably unique signals, but i still say go with 11.
