Question about Phones

1 Answer

We spend winters in our 601 Three Islands Blvd. Hallandale apartment (#501) and we transfer our Vonage account back and forth between NY and Florida. But the ground-floor front door of our building can be open from upstairs only if we dial "6" from a Bell South number. Is this a forced monopoly? There MUST be another way. Please tell us what to do. I woukd appreciate.

Lcd screen is blank also trying to pick up voice mail and can not


Called GE. Here's what's happening (at least with my phone). I use VONAGE as a carrier. VONAGE's package includes voicemail. I have my VONAGE voicemail account set up to take any call that comes in if the answering machine on my GE phone does not pick up -- for instance if I'm on the phone and I do not "flash" over to the incoming call, that caller will eventually be sent to my VONAGE voicemail where they can leave a message. (Otherwise I would either take the call, or, if not already in use, the GE phone/answering system1.gif would simpy take the message.) This GE phone is commucating with my VONAGE account and letting me know that I have a mesage in my VONAGE account voicemail. All I have to do is either go online and delete the messages (after listening to them of course) and refresh the page. Once the messsages are deleted, the carrier lets my phone know the messages are gone and the NEW VOICE MAIL prompt on the handset disappears. I suppose I can do it by listening to the messages by calling in and deleting through the touch pad on the phone as well

GE corded/cordless phone, Model 25983EE2, now showing the speaker button flashing twice and this is constant. I am unable to turn this flashing off. Also there is a message showing a ''new voice mail'' but...


Had the same problem, turns out it was my Vonage service alerting me to a new message -- I had a Vonage voice mail. When I logged into my Vonage account and deleted my message, my "speaker button" stopped blinking

How to set the number of rings before the machin answers


Log into your Vonage account and change the number of rings or seconds to intercept for VM. In my Packet8 service, I can set a number of parameters for dual ring, intercept, and/or turn voice mail on and off. The last time I worked on a customer's Vonage we could do the same.

No dial tone on headset 2


If you have a regular phone, then connect it directly to the Vonage phone router. Be sure and connect to the correct port on the router (mine has 2 ports, and I use both, but a single line subscriber would only hook to Line 1).
See if you get a dial tone with the standard phone hooked up (we are testing that the Vonage is good.first, then we'll deal with the Uniden phone.). If not, what do the light's indicate on the Vonage router? Have you subscribed to Vonage? Do you have a cable between your router and the Vonage router?

Reply back back what you find and I can help you more.

My in-laws have vonage telephone service with comcast internet, before they just had at&t with no problems. Now when they are having a telephone conversation the connection seems to cut in and out and...


With choppy audio and one-way audio, either party on the call hears the audio breaking up, or no audio at all. Dropped audio is when a call is in session and both parties are unable to hear each other.
  • From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver. This feature controls the amount of bandwidth used for a phone call. Try adjusting the bandwidth saver to either medium or normal. After you adjust your settings, test and see if there is a difference in the audio quality. Please note that when you change bandwidth saver it could take a few minutes for the device to reboot and take the changes. From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver.

  • Ensure that your Vonage device is at least four feet away from any other device.
  • Ensure your Vonage device is in a well ventilated area to keep from overheating.
  • Ensure no file sharing, P2P applications, or large downloads are running while you are using the phone. These activities can use up most of your bandwidth, leaving little left for your calls.
  • Connect your Vonage device directly to your cable / DSL modem, if it is not already. If this helps the audio quality, then the problem is occurring between the Vonage device and modem.
  • If your Vonage device connects to another router and not directly to your cable / DSL modem, try disabling any firewalls or SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) on that router. Click here to learn about firewalls and SPI.
  • If you wish not to disable your firewall, then you can port forward the Vonage traffic to the adapter. Click here to learn about port forwarding.

Wireless Routers and Cordless phones — If you have a wireless router and a cordless phone:
  • Ensure all wireless devices and cordless phone bases are at least four feet away from each other.

  • Ensure there are no more than five phones connected through the house wiring. The signal fades as more phones are connected to house wiring.
  • Test with one phone directly connected to your Vonage device. If this fixes the issue, there may be a problem with your house wiring.
If you have made it through this checklist and you are still experiencing an audio problem, our first class customer service is available to assist you. Please have handy your account ID, phone number, name of your internet service provider (ISP), and model numbers for your Vonage device and any other devices in your network.

Philips phones


Moved from Texas (CST) to Florida (EST). Brought my vonage equip. with me and kept my TX phone number. Just bought a new Philips CD440 phone. I set the date and clock to correct time. When I receive a call, my phone then reverts back to CST (loses an hour). I have checked all my Vonage settings; they show me as having EST and my new FL address. I can't figure out what is making the Philips phone think it is in CST. This is spooky.

New Voice Mail


I have FiOs and used some of the info I gathered from this page to get my voice mail working now! To set up my voice mail I called my phone number (from the house phone), then pressed * when the automated system picked up...Your prompted to use a 4 digit pass code, which is the last 4 digits of your phone number (worked for me). From there I listened to the prompts and created a new "4 digit pw" as well as a "name password" by the end of the cycle. It then allowed me to listen to the messages on the phone and delete them! Phone finally says ready on it.
