Intercom feature not working

Just setting up small business the intercom feature is not working between the 2 phones. Line 1 is voice Line 2 is fax and lines 3 and 4 are rollover lines. I had a professional come in aand do all the wiring for me and I am confident he did e/t right. He rx'd the phones and is baffled by the intercom not working. I have already exchnged one thinking it was defective. I am using Nuvox and T1 so no DSl involved. Any suggestions?

    RCA 2542 phones use a different codec than that provided by SIP providers like NuVox or, in my case, CBeyond. The CBeyond installer said he groaned whenever he saw intercom phones. RCA's documentation is useless, and so is their phone support - they suggested I return the phones for replacement...in one client's office there are 9 of them. I'm not sure if the CBeyond guy was spouting B***S*** or not, but my next step was to call Cisco.
    Anybody else have RCA phones and CBeyond phone service and made it work?

Is one of the 2 phones transformer plugged into a power strip? If so, try putting it directly into the wall, most power strips do not pass the signal properly

Cant receive faxes. constant busy signal when dialing in.


Hi Janet
Try using a standard phone to call your Fax Line
Connect a phone to this Line to test for voice
Disconnect Fax Machine from Phone Line
Reset Fax machine
The Fax machine is supposed to respond to the right tones being sent down the voice line
If it is not responding & all else works then check your Fax settings for "Receiving"

Hi,

Since you said line 3 was working for #2 company, i will suggest you put the line 3 back from where you removed it from. From the look of things the line might be the only line connected to be functioning. When ever you want to switch line since it is with intercom you will need to switch both side from where it is connected to where it is connected to, so that network connection can be achieved.

And on the other hand, the other line might not be working properly, that is why it was not connected or used.

Take care.

Intercom / page problem with AT&T phones model 944 and 955


Do you have DSL on this line? Make sure you have filters on the lines going to the phones or take the line coming out of your DSL modem and split it to the phones.

Also, try unplugging your fax, computer modem or credit card machine and test the intercom. Sharing one line for several devices can make the intercom unhappy.

Yes, you can use a regular 2 line cordless phone with your 4 line corded systems. The only concern is when you put someone on hold. The on hold function may not release if you have different makes of phone. If you already have Panasonic get a Panasonic 2 line cordless phone with the on hold feature.

Yes, you can just take line 3 and plug it into your new fax. I might suggest looking into a fax to email service instead of buying a new fax. If you receive more than send it's a great way to save on the phone line and paper.

Digital phones are pretty secure, no one will accidentally hear your conversations. It is not encrypted but I think it would be perfectly fine in your office.

What do I buy to use 2line phone and separate fax?


You can buy a 2 line phone, but to use the fax/dsl line for voice, you will also need a line sharing device.

"The stick" is a good brand....

All it does is recognize if an incoming call is a fax or a voice call. If fax it would go to a fax port on the stick. If voice, it comes out the voice port which you can call on.

The same rules apply to this line....if something is using it, the next call will get busy......But now you could have the phone company "Hunt" your line 1 to line 2 (fax/dsl) if line 1 is busy.......hence...2 incoming lines....
