I have two SONY IT-B3 phones which worked perfectly until now...if I am on another phone and my husband picks up either of the IT-B3 phones, he can barely hear us. These phones worked fine until we moved to another home...but one of the phones is on a splitter and the other phone on the splitter works fine, so it isn't the jack. Any ideas?
This sounds like a polarity issue in the new home.
I think you hace red and greed reversed somewhere in the telephone wiring. All greens should go together as all reds. If it is newer wiring the colors will be different, but the same rules apply. example: blue/white and white/blue striped wires will be one pair, it is easy to get then reversed if you are not careful.
Another possibility is there could be two incoming phone lines that are crossed with the red (or blue white) paired with the green (or white blue) from another incoming line.
The 2nd line should be on the black/green (orange/white pair)

this problem generally happens when your landlines phone line is in contact with other persons phone line . maybe your neighbor is having the phone line or it is in close contact with any other wire while on its way to exchange.. for this matter you need to contact or if you could visit them it would be better
Answer: Telephone line noise is usually caused eitherby an attached telephone or by the telephone line acting as an antennaand picking up radio frequency interference. If you have checked all ofthe telephones and telephone line devices and the noise problem occurson all outlets and all telephones (or at least all telephones without abuilt-in filter), then we recommend one of the noise problem solverslisted below. These work by removing the unwanted frequencies. If youhave tried both a filter and a choke core without results, then theproblem may be a physical problem with the phone line wiring iteself.In this case, you would need to contact your telephone company to havethem check the wiring.
We've had the same problem with our new Uniden phone. Sounds like someone's on the other line - no dial tone and answering machine doesn't work. The telephone line works though because we plugged our old phone in and it works fine. Any solutions anyone?
At one time, Radio Shack sold a cassette recorder specifically intended to record phone calls.
It can be plugged into an used jack, out of sight, and it picks up the line as soon as it is in use and records until the line goes inactive.
The legal stuff:
Some states require that both parties on the line are made aware that they are being recorded, others only one or none.
The main thing you stated that makes me feel the issue is with a line. Maybe not ADT. Security systems sit idle until needed. However, if it is an older system and has a failure, it could seize the line and disconnect. But with the static issue, it does sound like an inside wiring issue. There may be a short in the connection to the alarm system. I would call an independent wiring person. They are cheaper and can test from end to end. When two companies like this are involved sometimes finger pointing slows getting a resolution. So this takes care of that. Also, if there is a short they will usually reconnect it so you know you have a good connection. If this helped, please rate my response. And feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
was there a storm ie electrical try unplugging the main set and see if the busy line goes away if it does you can try unplugging them from the electric for while and then replug them to see if this reset them if the busy line return it appears the phone(s) are done
