Question about Nokia 6300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I want an 'engaged tone' to sound when people try to phone me whilst I'm on another call!!

I understand the importance of being accessible and contactable to others in this hectic 'Rat Race' way of life that we live, but, my mobile (business) can ring anything from 50 - 100 times during the day!!

The problem is this;

It's either 'Call Waiting' - sure fire direct route to madness!!!
or,
Bloody Answer Phone!!! - I'm then obliged to make a return call, more time with the thing stuck to my ear!!

Bottom line is, I hate these features - which are more geared toward recreational phones for your mates than business users if you ask me!!

So can anybody help me find, or activate the good old (and much missed) 'engaged tone'? In doing so, also assist me in retaining my sanity for a little while longer!!
(Service provider think I'm 'whacked out' for wanting such an "out-dated" feature and are usually about as much help as a 'Windows 98 For Dummies' manual would have been in the late 'Jurassic Period' of pre-history!!

Any help would be most welcome.

I am not sure what you are trying to say here. Is it the busy tone you want? You can deactivate your call waiting, or if you totally do not want to receive calls, you can block incoming calls through call barring if your provider supports it (menu>settings>security>call barring>activate all) or you can deceive everybody by having a ringback tone and voicemail message that sounds like a busy tone. Or perhaps you could get a phone that has that feature built in (try checking with sonyericsson because they had a phone before that could block incoming calls to specific numbers).

Phone doesnt have dialing tone, cant make a call also when we ring home its goes to engaged tone


This means that your phone line is short circuited somewhere.
The technical name for it is Partial line Lockout.

Try unplugging anything connected to the phone line, including modems, fax machines, house alarms etc (as faulty equipment can cause this), then try ringing home again. If it now rings, plug things in 1 at a time and ring each time to see what is causing it.

If it is still an engaged tone with everything unplugged, then the short circuit is on the phone line in the street and needs to be repaired by your telephone company.

I have Nokia 1661-A and model: 1661-2b. When


I had the same problem with mine. when I would go to tone settings every time I tried to hit ring tone it would turn off the phone and restart, by the way in ring tone it was blank. No matter what I did it wouldn't work. So I went to settings then restore factory settings entered the code. It reset the factory settings, then when I went back to tone settings the ring tone said Nokia Tune so I hit enter and it gave a list of all other ring tones, then it worked so my phone finally rings.... Hope it works for you.

Phone line gets busy tone while recieving fax in DRPD mode


As I understand it, this is as it should be. You have two different numbers sharing the same physical line and only one can be active at any one time, so if you are using the phone and someone tries to fax, the fax line will be engaged and similarly, if you are sending a fax and someone tries to ring on your phone line, it will be engaged.

We cannot make an indirect call using polycon soundstation2


it appears u have connected it to the epabx extension. when u try nos first & then press call, the unit dials the nos so fast that it does not understand ur access number (0 or 9) for dialling out.for this u need to give a pause between the access number ( 0 or 9 to get the dial tone for diallin an external no)this is available on the keypad as pause / redial & then out the number & press call.the prob should get fixed!

We have a roll over telephone line, in which the 2nd line is used for faxing, However if by chance we are using the 1st line Is there a particular setting or ring tone to where we will know when a fax is...


Nope. Fax machines use what is called a handshake to establish the connection.
It's a tone sent from the sending fax machine to the receiving machine to make it answer and receive the incoming transmition.
It's not a unique ring.
I always tell people, one of two things. If faxs are that important, you should have a dedicated phone line to receive them. Or, in instances where the message it very important. Use E-mail and sent the information as an attachment.
I understand the expense of an additional phone line for a fax. But you should weigh the importance of your faxing to the expense. Are you missing valuable information by sharing a line?
Just some thoughts.

No dialling tone - just a beeping sound


It sounds like the handset is not 'registered' to the base station/cradle. Solution may be in the user handbook, which you should be able to download at :

Fax nightmare!!!


If you have a BT line and use the 1571 answering facility , when you have a message waiting the dialling tone changes from a constant tone to a split tone. This is to let you know that you have one or more messages waiting.

In order to get the dialling tone to revert to the constant tone you have to deal with the waiting messages in accordance with the options provided i.e Save, Listen Again or Delete. BT say the Split Tone is to let subscribers know when they have a message waiting. This should resolve the Fax problem.

It certainly worked for my phone/fax system.

Good Luck
