I can't receive calls

Possible trouble on one phone or piece of equipment can cause trouble on the telephone line until that piece of equipment is removed. If you are unable to receive calls, try the following:


  1. First, verify that your phone's ringer is turned on.
  2. If you have Call Forwarding, check to make sure it is turned on or off.
  3. Unplug all telephone devices (a telephone device may be a telephone set, cordless telephone, answering machine, fax machine, computer modem or satellite receiver) from their baseboard or wall jacks inside your home.
  4. After a few minutes, try one of the phones in several of the jacks. If the phone does not work in several of the jacks, repeat the test with a different phone.
  5. If the second phone works, then the first phone is likely the problem. If your second or third phone does not work in any of the jacks, you may have trouble with your home's inside wiring or repairs may need to be made to your outside line.
  6. If you are unable to clear the trouble, call our repair service at 374-1238 (Delmar customers dial local 574-1238).
