Question about Motorola Mobility V170

1 Answer

No incoming calls

My phone quit incoming calls. When a call is received it goes directly to voicemail, does not ring. The phone turns itself on and off and several times a day the screen message says "Emergency Only" It has not been dunked, dropped, or damaged. I've had it for 11 months using Tracfone prepaid. Any suggestions, other than giving it a dirt nap? The battery has a full charge,there is "units" left in the airtime tank, expiration date isn't until May. I've tried asking Tracfone, but they have not replied.

Incoming calls: When we receive an incoming call,

Extension call forwarding is controlled by a timer, and they put these things in the manual. If your CF after 2 rings is from a call to a specific extension, from that extension, dial *713 and a 2 digit number from 00-99 seconds on the intercom. Start with 18.

If your call forwarding is from intercept, then you have a system programming issue and need to look in the installer's manual or check with your system programmer.

My lg 410g phone does not ring when there's incoming call but goes directly to voicemail


the reason the phone automatically goes to voice mail is simply because the phone has sim card has been set to do so.

The solution is for you to deactivate the voicemail.

That is when you will be able to receive your call properly.

To deactivate the voicemail, all you have to do is to dial ##002# and send.

it will deactivate the voicemail of your phone and you will be able to receive your calls aswell as your phone will also start to ring out.

take care

Mitel 5212 no dial tone and goes straight to voicemail

Not too sure about the no dial tone issue, but you can check to see if the DND is turned on...
Press the Blue Superkey and scroll thru till you see DND (Do Not Disturb) is on and shut it off.

HTTC 6800 Not receiving calls in sleep mode

You want to make sure your callforwarding is on. Sometimes when you select sleep mode, the calls will divert directly to Voicemail. Plus, ensure you have signal. Without signal, by default the calls go directily to voicemail. We won't wanna miss a call here. You can follow these steps here. start
call forwarding
get settings (wait for a while)
forward all incoming phone calls (check the box)

In the option to forward calls, there should be an option for the amount of seconds the phone RINGS prior to forwarding directly to voicemail.
IF your HTC device doesn't have the option for voicemail, and your calls are routed else where, contact your carrier for the voicemail number. This is very important!
