Go to the NID (network interface device) on the side of the house and open the customer side.

plug a telephone that you KNOW is working into the customer test port.

if the 'phone works then you have a different 'phone that is bad or a short in a jack or wire.

if the 'phone doesn't work (you still hear ROH tone or just battery but no dialtone) then the problem is with the 'phone company.

if something is messed up inside... unplug all 'phones and modems. if you get dialtone, plug in each station and listen untill you go back to off-hook... and then you will know what is shorted.

if you don't get dt with all the 'phones unplugged then you have a bad station wire or jack. disconnect all the station wires at the NID or other bridging block and test for a short with an ohm meter.

How do I unstuck my Phone from line in use?


unplug all the phones in the house, or go out to the NID (network interface device) on the outside and disconnect the "line" from the "network". It should have a standard modular plug. You should be able to plug a regular phone into that jack and see if the line has cleared. Chances are there's a phone in the house that's partially off-hook.

Callers get busy signal, all 3 phones say extention in use or parallel line in use


Possible causes:
1. Another phone is off-hook besides these 3.
2. Bad house wiring - call the phone company.
3. Bad wiring somewhere between your house and the Central Office - call the phone company.

When trying to fax, iam getting a fast busy signal, this problem just strated


This could be related to the fax machine, but more than likely it's a phone line issue. Try sending a fax manually by using the fax machine's speaker or "on-hook", then manually dial the number. Listen carefully as the machine dials and make sure it's even dialing out. Do not hit start until you hear the other fax machine pick up. If the "fast" busy signal occurs before dialing is complete or right after, have your phone line checked.

Disabled phone line


Sounds like the answering machine is picking up the telephone line and not releasing it.

Hence the busy signal, cause the answering machine has the line off hook. It's like leaving your telephone off hook, the next caller will get a busy signal...

The answering machine might be bad... have you noticed that you were talking on the phone and hung up then the next call would be the busy signal? Maybe test this out.
Do you have the correct voltage to the answering machine, too much power or too little power can do funny things to telephone equipement.

Can't phone out.


 Maybe one of your phones (if you have more than one in the house) is on talk mode. If that's the case you might not be able to use the other phones because that one phone is "Busy"

Vonage customer, problem running through home phone wiring


Make sure you have disconnected the original phone line at the first entry point to your home. Even though regular phone service is disconnected (software) the original phone line carries some "noise" which can cause issues when trying to utilize existing phone wiring throughout the home.

Based on my experience, I think, maybe it is related to parrellel phone dectection. ATT 1717 already think, the system is busy or in use. The line voltage is too low when you hook up other phone.
Your house phone line maybe far from switch (3km to 5km).
