Incoming call only gets one ring

When there's an incoming call, the phone only rings once. I tried calling from my cell phone and after it rings once, there's static and my cell phone says "call suspended by network".

SOURCE: PHONES WILL NOT RING ON

This question was posted on the troubleshooting page for the VT-9118. This answer is specific to this model.
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.  
Hope this helps you. If you need for information, you can download the user manual from http://www.vtechphones.com/docMgt/public/art/313/vt9118.pdf

SOURCE: Disconnects incoming calls after one ring

The problem may be a short on your line. (Have the local Teleco check your line.) If you have other phones, you may want to check them for dial tone(DT) when this happens. If you have no DT, your cordless may be the problem...unplug, and let charge overnight. If problem continues, replace the battery in cordless, or discontinue use.

SOURCE: Incoming calls on home phone ring 1 time and then extreme static

When you unplug everything connected to the phone jack what happens? If it works, you have too many ringers or a short on the line. If it still trips the ring, you have a defective box.

Nokia 6085 drops incoming calls


in profile management under caller settings you should find an option there to set the number of rings before timing out. Set it to whatever your preference is and it should solve your problem. otherwise it may be a provider issue, try calling AT&T and explaining what's going on.
