My phone rings, but no one's there

If you answer your phone but there is no one there, check for the following:


  1. Do you subscribe to call forwarding? If so, your calls may ring only once and be re-routed to an alternate number.
  2. 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. Plug in a corded phone into one of the jacks and ask someone to call you. If that doesn't work, try a different phone or jack.
  3. You may have received a misdirected call. Computers or fax machines could be programmed incorrectly to dial your phone number. You could answer a ringing phone and get no one on the line, a fax tone or a computer tone.
  4. Telemarketers may use computerized auto-dialers that dial multiple numbers at one time. When someone picks up, the telemarketer speaks with the first person to answer and your line is left dead. F&B's Telemarketer Call Screening stops unwanted call from telemarketers, blocking them before your phone rings.
