Sometimes the phone will ring once and then stop. If I pick up quickly I can talk to the party on the phone but when we hang up my phone doesn't hang up and makes the alarm sound, then after awhile it stops and just hear static. The static/open line stays open for at least 30 mins or more then I get a dial tone and everything seems normal. Also the open line/static affects the DSL and causes it to not work at all.
Have a good dial tone at the NIB. This problem started about 2 months ago. I have visually checked all the jacks and have not found any loose wires or touching wires.
What could be causes my phone not to hang up. Also get static on the line when someone calls, but not usually when I call out.

Re: phone line won't hang up
I would check the DSL filters. Your phone should not interfere with the DSL. Make sure there is a filter on any line going into your phones. If there is a filter replace it and see if that works. Also, check other equipment on the line, fax, computer, credit card machine. They will need filters from the DSL too. Remove these other devices and check the line for the problem then add them back one at a time.

Depends on the phone system or service you are using. On a regular land-line you can do a 3-way call (if you have this option available to you through your service provider). To do this: 1. Call the first party. 2. Once the caller is on the line ask them to hold while to connect with the 2nd party. 3. Flash to dial tone. There may be a flash button on your phone or you may just press talk. In any case you should hear a quick "beep..beep..beep" then dial tone. 4. Now you can dial the 2nd party and click the flash (or talk) again to return to the 1st party and you both should hear the phone ringing for the 2nd party.
There's hundreds, if not thousands, of different phones, phone systems, and provider combinations that have different procedures for making conference calls. This is probably the most basic way. Hope this helps
when your using a phone with the a button for talk and end usually you can press the talk button and it will switch lines. on other models the phone will have a button marked Flash this would be the button to use. if you are using rotary phones you quickly tap the button that hangs up the receiver this will switch to the other line.
Go to settings on your phone, click on the phone option, it will display different option, select call forwarding or call divert, enter the number you forwarding the call to and press ok, you are done. follow the same procedure, when you get to call forwarding, you can select to cancel as you can no longer add a number.
One thing to try and take note of is when the message does pick up on the "two ring" message present part do you hear on your side two full rings before the pick up? It may be that the primary ring starts on the home side as does happen sometimes with VOIP service. If you are only hearing 1 or 1 1/2 rings before the message picks up then you might try hanging up after the second full ring thus knowing no messages are present and it should overcome your problem.
To make a Conference Call 1. While on a call, press Cnf/Trn_____. 2. Dial a [DN] (or access an outside line and dial an external telephone number). 3. Press Cnf/Trnafter the called party answers. All parties are conferenced together. If you added an outside line to the call, press Cnf/Trnagain before hanging up to allow the outside parties to continue talking. (If you do not, the call is disconnected). Note Some types of outside lines (“unsupervised”) do not automatically disconnect when conferenced parties hang up. In this case, press one of the flashing buttons to monitor the conference. If the parties are still on the line, press Cnf/Trn + Spkr, then hang up. When no one is on the line, press Spkrto disconnect the lines.
Some phones answer when picked up off the charger, but with some you must press the talk button to answer. Some have a green reciever on the button. And to hang up you must press the off button or the button with the red reciever.
