Question about RCA 25414RE3 Corded Phone
When I am on line 1 (in use), and a call comes in on line 2 the phone does NOT ring. (I do hear the alerter tone.. annoying) but I want the phones to ring instead. I tried turning off the alerter signal but the phone STILL does not ring when on another line talking. Help PLEASE
Without taking another look at the manual, the last time I read it I remember this is a feature, not a problem. The phone, if it is in use on any line, will not ring audibly when a call come in on another line (but will beep - after the second ring, I think - so that only you can hear it).
The presumption is that you do not want your party on the other end to be distracted by hearing a phone ringing that's only three feet away from your handset, AND that there will be someone else in the next office to pick up the incoming call.
As far as none of the phones ringing for an incoming call, I had some small difficulties with phone mis-behavior because I was using 50-foot phone cords when 7-foot was long enough. That didn't make sense to me, but when I shortened the phone cords from phone to wall, almost all the little problems went away.
Make sure you haven't silenced the ringer on the other lines.
