when you checked the ground, i'm assuming you had the red test lead to ground, but where did you have the black test lead?
if the phone is bleeding back to your subpanel, it is a pretty good sign that the ground rod is not very good.
it is possably that something on the subpanel circuit had a capacitor in it. that could store a charge for a few seconds to several minutes. but if you had all sub circuits in off position, i'm not sure how that could back feed to you.
is the meter a digital? does it have auto ranging? if so, some of those meters (even the cheap ones) are so sensitive that they will pick up radio frequency and other emf energy in the area and display a value for it. (this is not enough to give you a shock or even a tingle though). love a mistery, got some more information?
