Default Strange cellphone like vibrating noise (help please)

for the past 2 days when im in my truck (not driving) but maybe when i just parked or im just randomly in my car doing something

i will hear a vibrating noise, it does this three times and stops (like someone calling a cellphone) i looked i couldnt find anything that could be vibrating, such as razor, cellphone, gps stuff, camera etc etc....
what could it be?
and it doesnt happen only at home...

and i know some of u guys know that i am hard of hearing..believe me i can hear this and my dad heard it last night when picked up a load.


could it be the anti theft thingy??

Does it only make the noise when the engine is running, or does it do it when the key is turned to the on or ACC position as well?

Hmmm. I'm stumped. If you don't have anything running, my only guess is maybe somebody dropped their phone in your truck and you just can't find the damn thing.
