Here's the drill.
Call your telephone company, and they will check your service to the house or apartment.
From the box on the outside wall, the wires to your phone on the inside are your responsibility, meaning you would have to get someone to fix them your self.
However, at the outside connection box, there is a plug wherein you can plug a phone in to, and see if the signal is getting that far.
If it is, you need only check wires and connections between there and your inside phone.
One other thing.
I hope the 021 number you listed is not the number of your phone, because if it is, now many persons or businesses could copy that down and bother you.
Please do not publish your phone number where others can read that number, to save phone calls you do not wish to receive.
God bless your efforts.
if you have a landline phone, plug that into the Demarc either inside/outside of your house, if you dont know what that is, its a grey box where your phone lines come in and you will see customer service side. Get a phillips screwdriver and open that side up and plug your phone in. If it doesnt ring there, your phone company has to fix the problem.

If you have a landline, most likely you have a short in it. Not enough to kill line, but, when the 90 volts a.c. comes in to ring it jumps short. The short answers the phone.. It doesn't stop out going but can cause static. Check the line at the box outside. if bad there call your phone company, if good there, trouble is in house
should you dial 9 or another access code for outside calls?
If if you dial an "outside" number on an intercom line it will look at the first 2-3 digits as another extension. You need to dial the Central Office access code, or use a line key assigned to an outside line.
Cordless phones can not 'forward' a call to an outside line.
Forwarding must be controlled by the ATT, Verizon, or landline provider. Please contact your provider to determine if you have call forwarding feature built into your service package.
Then, follow the instructions of your landline phone provider. Here is the instructions for Verizon:
Activating Call Forwarding You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.
Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.
Press . In some areas you must use Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.
When you hear the tone, set or change the Call Forwarding number by dialing the telephone number where you want your calls transferred. You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.
If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes. You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.
