Others cant hear me?

Must have hit a mute button, try to locate that button. If no mute button then your phone might be broken.

Rogers problems

This has become a growing problem:
  • As land lines have been reclaimed or replaced in the phone company networks;
  • As the growing older population has lost hearing sensitivity.
  • Because secondary carriers don't always receive the best or least crowded connectons (especially in case of residential versus business which pay more for service).
If you are getting static and cross talk (hearing radio or other people's converstations) notify the phone company and you will probably provided a new connection.

IF the problem is persistent without such interference, consider an amplified phone--some states (California for instance under Federal auspices) makes such equipment available free to hearing impaired. Also check the quality of your household wiring and connections.

Check with you neighbors--if they don't have the same problems, complain to the phone company. If they do, complain together.

Finally, some phones are simply too poor in quality to provide good sound. You might want to upgrade: either the phone set or its line or handset cord.

Callers cannot hear me speak....I can hear them, but they can't hear me!!!


Since you can hear them but they cannot hear you, the problem is your mouth piece.

All you need to do is to change your mouth piece,because it is now bad.

Meanwhile, i advice you get hands free,before you fix your mouth piece problem. this will help when you call, the callers will be able to her you with the hands free and you can also hear when people call you.

Take care.

No dial tone ,gets incoming, but cant hear anything, they cant hear me

Generic answer

You MUST get dial tone to talk or listen. Your base may ring but this may be unrelated to the telephone signal.

Check all wires and all settings. Are yoju certain your hand set is a member of your telephone group?

Settings complications

To change the ring tone press the flash key, keep pressing the flash key to hear all 16 different tones.
If you mean 12 or 24 hour format, you cant change it.. its set for 24 hour format.

Good luck
