The ringing you hear when you dial your phone number is not actually your phone ringing but a machine at the phone company designed to give you something to listen to while they connect your call. I would say that your phone number is working, just not at your house. You need to call repair to trace your phone line and get it connected properly. Good luck

Our phone rings, but we get the dial-tone when we answer and hear our neighbors conversation in the background


Change the channel or code setting. It's also possible the 'pairs" for your house and your neighbors are "crossed". Does it happen with all phones or just the cordless one. If it's all phones, the problem is in the phone lines.

Does not ring


is the ringer on the base or phone on? check that first.if that's ok, then plug a regular corded phone into the phone jack and see if there is dial tone.if there isn't any, try other jacks in the house. if still not working, call your phone company.

Doro Home cordless phone not working


it sounds like you may not have any dial tone in the house. some phones have a light come on when the phone isn't recieving dial tone.[in your case the anntena] you can try plugging a corded phone into different jacks in the house.there maybe a box [called a nid] on the outside or in the basement/garage where you can plug a phone directly into it bypassing all the jacks in the house [there could be a problem in the house] if still no dial tone ,call your phone company
