Before reporting trouble, customers should conduct the following tests:

  • Ensure that the telephone equipment is properly connected.
  • Check for visible damage to the touchtone pad and/or connection cord.
  • For modular, single line instruments, unplug the telephone and test it at another connection location.
  • For multi-line sets, check the faulty instrument by dialing the telephone numbers programmed on it from another set.
  • Check to see if the telephone instrument's features may have been set to cause incoming calls to ring or be transferred to another line.
