Question about Phones

1 Answer

I have been told I need the phone line into my home I recently purchased rewired. I am wondering about going wireless but need the service ATT offers where they will forward the old phone numbers to ring on the new phone number for a few months. Can I do this with digital phone lines

Hello De Ann,

Yes, it can be forwarded with new digital service or the older landline technology. Call AT&T and request that they all call forward the old Telephone Number to the new one and tell them how long you need it that way. If this helped please rate my response on fixya.com. Thanks! Feel free to respond if you have any questions.

Can't forward from my vtech to my att cell no matter what I'd do


Call forwarding is NOT a function or feature of the VTech 6041
cordless phones.

It is offered by some telephone service providers, but their
procedures are proprietary and specific to that individual
telephone (service) company -- if they offer it at all.

Good luck!

All of a sudden the line lights on our nortel switch Meridian M7310 phones started blinking and the lines are dead. Any ideas?


If you only have one line,why not just lose the Nortel system? You can reuse the wiring from the phone sets to the contoller as regular inside wire,and just plug in regular phones(and maybe put the Nortel phones and controller on EBay and make a few bucks off it!)

I recently switched to the comcast phone service from ATT. I have a structured wire set up. I also kept an ATT land line so I'd have a telco line in an emergency--like an earthquake. On every phone in the...


Assuming you have 2 line phones, what happens if you swap lines? If your structured wiring is the 568B standard, which is the most typical, the second line must be punched down to the white/green pair instead of the orange/white pair for 568A wiring. It sounds like the second line may be daisy chained in the panel so you have to see how it's wired and troubleshoot from there. Sometimes a pair is connected to a power supply to provide power for a phone or light but that's not typical any more. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you have more info or photos of the panel and jacks I'd be happy to help further.

We just installed ATT-uverse & our incoming calls don't work


I think you just need to turn the CIDCW on through the "Global Menu" The following is from the user's manual for the TRU8885.


Setting CIDCW (Caller ID on Call Waiting)
CIDCW sets the Caller ID on Call Waiting (CIDCW) displays the name and number of
an incoming call while you are on the line. Call Waiting Deluxe (CWDX) allows you
to handle call waiting calls in seven different ways.
1) Enter the Global Setup menu, and then the CIDCW
submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select CW On/CWD X O n, C W
On/CWD X O ff, or CW O ff/CW DX Off, and then press the
OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Cordless phone conflict with wireless home computer router


It looks like it's been solved by purchasing a new 1.8GHz phone- the new one seems to be having no problems. The retailer shop man said they often hear of this type of problem and recommend the 1.8GHZ models -- wish they'd told us that before we bought the previous one!!!

With choppy audio and one-way audio, either party on the call hears the audio breaking up, or no audio at all. Dropped audio is when a call is in session and both parties are unable to hear each other.
  • From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver. This feature controls the amount of bandwidth used for a phone call. Try adjusting the bandwidth saver to either medium or normal. After you adjust your settings, test and see if there is a difference in the audio quality. Please note that when you change bandwidth saver it could take a few minutes for the device to reboot and take the changes. From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver.

  • Ensure that your Vonage device is at least four feet away from any other device.
  • Ensure your Vonage device is in a well ventilated area to keep from overheating.
  • Ensure no file sharing, P2P applications, or large downloads are running while you are using the phone. These activities can use up most of your bandwidth, leaving little left for your calls.
  • Connect your Vonage device directly to your cable / DSL modem, if it is not already. If this helps the audio quality, then the problem is occurring between the Vonage device and modem.
  • If your Vonage device connects to another router and not directly to your cable / DSL modem, try disabling any firewalls or SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) on that router. Click here to learn about firewalls and SPI.
