    Intercom will ring, but the phone only blinks and does not ring for incoming calls. Have picked a ringer, made sure the volume is on, and confirmed that the do not disturb function is off.

    How can I make it ring for incoming calls as well?

    I have an M7324 phone & for the past 2 weeks, it does not ring for incoming calls but goes directly to voice mail. Can you help me with this? I can't seem to find a solution.

    I have the same problem - I canceled all forwarding and the do not disturb function, and the intercom works fine, as well as calling out - but if someone calls me from outside the network it doesn't even blink - just goes straight to my voicemail and doesn't ring at all. Help!

    Have the same problem with cordless phone. Rings and flashes caller id once and you can pick it up but there are no more rings than the initial one. DSL is in place and we're using standard in line filters. Outgoing calls are fine. Any ideas?

The VT-9118 can use one of 4 different ring tones, and can be turned off.
To reset your ring tone:
1. Remove the handset from the base. 2. Press PROG. You should hear a single short beep. 3. Press #.  You should hear a single short beep. 4. Press a number 1 through 4. You should hear a long "ring" tone (it might be startling!). You can try other numbers from 1 to 4 to hear them all.  5. Press MEM to confirm your ring. You will hear a medium beep.
To turn the ringer off, follow the same instructions, but choose number 5.
Tip: tape a note to your phone - I just did!  [Ringer: PROG # choose1-5 MEM)

Hope this helps you. If you need for information, you can download the user manual from

Just recently the Innovage LED touch screen phone stopped ringing. It has worked perfectly as a home office phone since Oct. 2005. Cannot find anything in the tiny manual to correct this problem.
