rings, but no one's there
If you answer
your phone but there is no one there, check for the following:
- Do you subscribe
to call forwarding? If so, your calls may ring only once and be
re-routed to an alternate number.
- 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
- 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
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.
